Laptop Antivirus

Comodo Internet Security (free for home use), Kaspersky Internet Security 2011, ESET Smart Security, Avast Internet Security, and Trend Micro Internet Security are all good choices. I Do recomend that you use the 30-day trial of the paid programs to see if there is any slowdown of your laptop.

However I do not like to use all-in-one security software. There is more of a chance that a scan will miss something. However on the flip-side; I know that no scanner is going to get everything.
Instead I am using:

Anti-virus: Avira Anitvir Personal Free.

Anti-spy: Malwarebytes, Microsoft windows Defender, And Superantispyware. Note they are but Defender 'on demand' scanners. Windows Defender is a real time Anti-spy.

Firewall: Comodo. Also Comodo firewall is part of Comodo Internet Security. However You can opt out to have only the firewall or the anti-virus part.

Other: Sandboxie, Spywareblaster, Hostfile, CCLeaner (Removes temp files to make scans run faster), Keyscramber, Web-of-Trust.

Firefox Addons: No-script, Ad-block plus.

I should add that the only software I have that are real time is Windows Defender (Anti-spy), Avira (Anti-Virus), and Comodo Firewall. I know that I have three real time programs running. However they do not conflict with each other.
End the end it is really what you think is the best for your needs.

The best protection is the operator of the laptop. No combination of protection on Windows today will stop it all if the user isn't actively engaged.
