A lot of anti-virus tools don't work yet. Same goes for firewalls. I actually tried to install various firewalls including Agnitum's Outpost Firewall but the result is often the same: Full system crash with blue screen

Windows 8 includes a built-in antivirus called Microsoft Security Essentials aka Windows Defender 

AVG promised to make their antivirus work with Windows 8 ASAP, so check it out


Also try Malwarebytes
