So finally, I got someone to help for this particular topic I literally mastered with!
lol... No problem dear. you can connect it as easily as having snacks while you are really hungry :P
Don't use Antivirus programs like AVG ( that troubled me a lot)
simply use Microsoft security essentials ,avira etc . ( you can experiment with those)
Use connectify, the free version is helpful enough!
you can get that program from Connectify - Turn your PC into a Wi-Fi Hotspot and Get Faster Internet
Simply create a wpa2 secured network.
If still you can't find the hotspot in your device.
don't worry! I have the solution.
For this make sure your wifi network card in your laptop is using 802.11 b/g wireless mode,
This mode uses 2.4GHz bandwidth of frequency, which is detectable in mobile devices like ours, If your laptop transmits 5.2GHz or like that, your device will not find it!
so to make sure your device is using 802.11 b/g mode,
1.Open network and sharing center
2.Click on "Change Adapter Settings"
3. FInd your wifi card from there
(mine is "Inter(r) Centrino(r) Advanced-N 6200 AGN"
4.Right click>go to properties > configure>Advanced>Wireless Mode>select 802.11 b/g
For help see the picture.
And use the connectify.
It will connect for sure and enjoy!

A solution which worked for me:
I have Nokia Lumia 520 to be connected to a windows 7 laptop so that i can use the internet connection on the laptop to be shared to my phone. So I did this:
1.Go to "Network and Sharing Center".
2.Select "Set up a new connection or network".
3.Select "Set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network".
6.Type a Network Name and Security Key.Also tick mark the "Save this network".
Now download and install the "Virtual Router Manager v1.0".
1.Open the program "Virtual Router Manager v1.0" and type in the network name and password for what you had given before when you created the network.
2.Now select the shared connection which will be the connection which provides you internet.(For me it was "Local Area Connection").
3.Now press "Start Virtual Router".
4.Go to Settings->WiFi in your Nokia Lumia 520 and turn it on.
4.If everything has gone right, the network will be identified and you may use the connection by entering the password.
Hope this helps for all having this problem.... Please give feedback..............

You can try this Tutorial on my blog it works perfectly fine for my iphone and android as well.... not tried lumia but as you had asked that you doubt lumia cannot connect to Ad-hoc.. This software in the tutorial creates a wifi hotspot so it is as good as you are connecting to a wifi router....
