95magnarider is correct. The write filter prevents the unit from getting infected persitently. Nevertheless a unit can get infected while it is running and can spread the malware around until rebooted.
With the new File-based Write Filter FBWF implemeting a antivirus solutions is much easier nowadays.
Just install the product of your choice and put some exceptions in the FBWF list for eg. pattern files.
Should work with most of the current products. No longer need for a second partition or something else.
McAfee works fine for me btw.
