Free antivirus is not longer available for a year it is only available for trial. You have to purchase a licence key for utilize full functionality of the any antivirus . It is better to use total security and maximum security instead of internet security. Some popular antivirus brand in India are Norton , Quick Heal, Trend micro etc. You can go for it.

I am also using Sony Vaio from last 7 years and Avast antivirus from the same years. I just download it from download.com and when they ask for money i uninstall and find another avast antivirus (they have various kind of antivirus).
If you are going to use the boot time scan you will love this anti virus as it may find you viruses from hardware too.

If you are using a laptop you are surely using internet and their are number of links which can corrupt the files of your system when opened or reached. There are number of sites which are not good for computer system as they contain many hazardous files that may slow down the performance of your system. It is recommended to use antivirus for all the systems to make them secure and maintain the performance. Norton is what I prefer as the best among all.

So @Manish Mishra I can rely in Avast antivirus? And yes @VIVEK KUMAR I tried for free softwares and I was unable to go ahead as it was just for free trial. My laptop is running on windows 8. I heard that windows 8 has got built in antivirus? Answers would be really appreciated.

@Pooja Sharma :

If you are using Windows 8, there are antivirus software that Microsoft provides, but I do not prefer to completely rely on Microsoft Antivirus that is either inbuilt or downloadable from website, as if you really care for the performance of your system you may prefer to any paid or licensed antivirus from another good brands as they are dedicated to secure systems and have their dedicated antivirus support.

Yes I think I will go with quickheel or NPAV. Do I have to go to market to buy them or I can do it online by online transaction. What would be much better? I used NPAV once and it used to take 1 hour for scanning my computer and I think same would be the case with quickheel.

It is necessary to install an antivirus software to protect your computer from virus and malware when you are browsing the internet. The software will filter away malicious sites so that you won't be able to access sites that contain virus that can infect and harm your computer system. Some of the top antivirus software you can install on your computer are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus, Kapersky Antivirus, McAfee Antivirus Plus, Norton Security, F-Secure Antivirus, and Avira Antivirus Pro.
