    Now that the key for Kaspersky that I purchased in India did not work here, I am stuck in a dilemma. Either to buy another key here for about 70$ (compared to the 8-9$ it was coating me there)
    Or to install a free anti virus software that offers decent levels of protection as well.

    What anti virus do you use? Suggest away. Used to be a fan of AVG, but in a long time it's either been Avast or Avira.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Personally I still trust Microsoft Security Essentials that comes bundled with Win 7 onwards .. lightweight, no false flags.
