Thank you for the update.  Did you order your laptop with an anti-virus app such as Norton or McAfee pre-installed?  If not, as mentioned above, Windows 8 through 10 use Windows Security anti-virus/anti-malware/firewall.  They will update regularly and are already installed with Windows. Read more HERE.

 

 I supplement what I already have for free from Microsoft, by using  Malwarebytes . The difference between Malwarebytes Free and Paid is that Free does not run in realtime and does not update automatically. You have to do it manually. Paid will run automatically.  In addition, if you prefer to use a paid anti-virus with more features than Windows offers I feel that ESET is a good choice.

 

*Note: if you add a second anti-virus, your resident Windows Security's anti-virus will be disabled in order to avoid conflicts.

Windows 8 through 10 have anti-virus installed with the operating system.  In Windows 10 go to your Windows Settings>Update & Security to access your anti-virus.

The original poster has not provided many details as to why the question was posted.
As long as Windows provides resident security, I believe it is not prudent to throw a toolbox at anything unless we know exactly what we are dealing with.
Let's wait for more details before we recommend software.
