I use MSE + Malwarebytes. Never had any problems, whatsoever. Best anti-virus is don't fishing click on sketchy ass websites.

Kaspersky, though it can be a cpu hog if you have an older one. Newer cpu's will be fine.

However, don't use Kaspersky if you ever plan on coding anything. Damn thing thinks even a "hello world" is dangerous...

^That site compares various anti-virus software across a variety of categories. Their pick for best of 2013 was Kaspersky.

MSE/Avast + Adblock + Noscript (if possible) + malwarebytes + common sense

When it comes to basic functionality, detection rates in the big tests are pretty similar. So if you make a decision, make so based on the interface and features.

One thing noticeable however, is that MSE is one of the few popular ones that lags behind the rest, yet everyone still uses it.
