If you don't mind a virus ridden system that crashes every other second then go ahead and run without protection. On the other hand if you prefer a smooth running system then you need to have a good anti-virus/malware suite. As the free ones go I recommend (in no particular order) AVG, Microsoft Security Essentials, & Avira. Suppliment with Malwarebytes and you'll keep your machine nice and clean.
