Windows Defender is really all you will need. Some people like avast, but I like how non-invasive defender is.

I've been happy with MS Security Essentials. It has the standard features and actively keeping you protected from threats, scheduled updates/scans. I used to have AVG but it got so annoying with it confusing a bunch of Steam files as high risk threats. The MS one doesn't get that bothersome.

Should I couple Windows Defender with Malwarebytes, or is Windows Defender good enough solo?

I'd prefer to not have to install anything else.

I have avast running ll the time and once a month or so run a malwarebytes anti-malware scan to check to see if anything has got through.

Windows Defender is good enough. It's an antivirus (the Windows 8 version of Windows Defender only), and that's the minimum everyone should have.
