sorry, but everybody in the security business when he is not developer 
of snakeoil aka anti-virus will tell you the exactly opposite

there is nothing like a "good anti-virus" which will protect you from new treats, new incarnations slip through signatures before new signatures are published and nothing to protect you from targeted attacks 

also i wouldn't make a bet that windows XP has the highest priority in testing and composing new signatures 

sorry but to say it clear: to think a anti-virus can replace a solid operating system is a naive and dangerous attitude 

with some luck malware was not tested on XP and won't run by luck because of the too small usrbase these days but when that is your security strategy you better install win98 because XP is not old enough and too similar to win7
