I have Kaspersky 2013 ( because the guys down at the computer shop recommended it for me. They say it has cloud protection so they have tons more definitions than other antivirus softwares which means they can stop more viruses.

If you have access to Google Play you shouldn't install one. It's been estimated that only 8 out of the 800.000 apps in Google Play are malware, thus as long as you download from Google Play you're safe. And by default your OS also checks any app you sideload for viruses, so you shouln't really worry.

Anti-virus apps are power hungry, and tend to have a very bad effect on your battery life. As long as you stick to the play store and don't install apps from dubious locations, you should be fine.
