    If you want free anti virus - use avg free - http://free.avg.com/gb-en/homepage

    If you want paid try Norton Internet Security. It was on offer at Amazon recently when I bought it. Something like £28 for 3 PC licence.

    Actually just thinking about it, your shiny new laptop will almost certainly come with a trial version of some antivirus software - often Macafee.

    If it's a new laptop it really should come with windows 7. If not I'd probably complain to the shop.

    If you're needing to upgrade take a look at http://www.software4students.co.uk/ it's also the place to go if you want versions of office etc. (or see what your uni might offer. They might have a license that allows you to use some software on your own laptop whilst your at uni)
