Anti-Virus: 

When you are buying a laptop worth 30K+, then we will suggest that you should buy paid antivirus for PC and Laptops.  You can check the data of virus attack worldwide and you will actually understand why this is so important to have high-level security on your laptop.

4. Kaspersky Antivirus
5.Trend Micro Antivirus
6. Avast Free Antivirus

Web Browser 

We all know that web browser is free software and MacBook comes with Safari and Windows-based laptop comes with Internet explorer. But sometimes you may feel that these two browsers are not good enough for your speed need or requirement. My friend, you have more choices like Firefox and Google Chrome.  Sometimes it happens that web developers developed a website, which is compatible with one browser but not with others. In such cases, you must have a combination of at least 2 browsers on your laptop.
All options are good; you can choose any two of them. Google Chrome has better compatibility with other Google products, so it is accepted by users largely. All this software you can download from the official website of the company.

MS Office

Microsoft Office software package is a part of our day to day working life, MS Office, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint used by millions of users every day. As I suggested in starting, I always prefer this software preloaded with my laptop, if it is not then you can buy online from the official website of Microsoft, but if you are thinking of using a crack version then it is your own risk.
MS Office package is not limited to above mentioned three software. You will get a complete package, which includes Access, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, Visio, and Word.

PDF Reader & Media Player: 

This software normally comes with every Laptop, but you can get the latest update from the Adobe website in any case required or if you do not have a PDF reader then you can download from there. 
Every OS comes with one in-build Media player, but if you feel that it is not supporting some of the audio/video files then I would suggest you VLC media player. It is a largely used media player in India and it is free.
