If you are used to a Mac, Windows is going to be a really steep learning curve. Fetch a copy of Windows XP for Dummies at your local library for a quick start.
With Windows, security needs to be foremost in your mind. Always run a current and updated antivirus program. If this PC has one, fine. If not, here is a good free one:
AVG Free - Download AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition for Windows XP and Vista
Spyware is different from viruses. Protecting against this is becoming even more important than viruses. AVG does a decent job with it, but a paid program like Counterspy is recommended:
