What is CURRENTLY the best method for removing viruses on Windows?

I assume the tools have changed in the past 5 years or so, despite Windows' better security, but back in my day it was Avira, Symantec and CCleaner. What's changed in the world of viruses and malware in the past 5 years, and how can I best impress the powers that be with thoroughness and efficiency?

I have a technical job interview and a quiz. Obviously this may be critical for my chances against the other candidates, but I've been on a Mac (and Linux) since 2006 and obviously have less need for that sort of thing as a result. Back in my Windows days, it was all about prevention. I don't need to be perfect, I would just like to be knowledgable about the most effective current methods. Thanks!
