Welcome
It is of course a matter of opinion, but I think the Microsoft Security Essentials is the best.
You are going to get dozens of answers disagreeing with me, but I think that they are wrong. MSE, has never caused a problem with Windows, but others have. They have caused slow performance, BSODs and other problems When the others come to say that something else is best, have them explain about the problems. I do not know about the specific one that you mentioned, but why pay when you can get free and it works with no problems.

I don't know any body that uses Quick Heal but if you got your heart set on it use it.
I use MSE.

MSE and safe browsing is all you need.

It all depends on what the OP wants. Quick Heal is a paid AV that comes from India, and from what I understand, is very popular there. MSE is free, basic protection that is from the US and may or may not be the best free option for an Indian user. If the OP is a safe user that never looks for porn, cracks, torrents ect.., then MSE may serve him/her well. I for one think there are better free options out there then MSE, and if the OP is a riskier user, and doesn't mind paying, then there are far better AV suites available compared to Quick Heal.

If I were a risky surfer, and didn't mind paying, I would buy Emsisoft Antimalware 7.0 in a heartbeat. Light on system resources, and damn near bullet proof.

Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware are all most people will ever need. Both free and work very well.
