Yup, you can! I do an online scan (switching provider everytime) every couple of months, and no virus. I'm not particularly careful, either. Just leave UAC and memory protection on (brownie point if you're running 64 bit and have the hardware version on... I don't. Oh, and more brownie points if you don't run as admin at all, so the UAC popup will ask for a password instead of just a mouse click), and you're pretty much safe, unless you do something stupid explicitely, but hey, thats true for all OS anyway.
