Windows The clock is ticking for XP users, with Microsoft ending support with its final security update after 11 years on April 8, 2014. Netmarketshare's desktop browser statistics show 40% of users are still using XP, totalling about 500 million users (versus Windows 7 at 45% and Vista at 6%). Gartner and Forrester analysts predict that 10% to 20% of enterprise PCs will be running XP after April 2014. Options for companies include: speed up XP conversions, sign up for Microsoft's Custom Support Program for after-retirement support, and add a supported browser to XP to replace unsupported IE8.

If you really don't want to run MSE for whatever reason (you know, Microsoft essentially already has root access on your Win machine, via Windows Update) - NOD32 was always very light, suitable for older machines; F-Prot similar, IIRC; though both not free.
Avira was also rather light last time I used it, and free (but it seems it has some gotchas now http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avira#Problems )

Or you might always try http://clamsentinel.sourceforge.net/
