You would be better off with a combo of Avast and Malwarebytes. MSE was recently found to miss 39% of real-world malware. It is also recommend to use an adblocker such as AdblockPlus or your windows host file. ( Google host file and go to the website to learn more about using it to block ad's ) No matter how safe you say you use the Internet, malware can and does infect through infected ad networks.

MSE is not reliable. It failed miserably in independent testing by AV-Test, a German firm that tests internet security software in terms of protection, performance, and usability. See the MSE results at the bottom of the page. It scored a dismal 0 out of 6 for protection, while scoring a 6 out of 6 for usability. MSE has lost AV-Test's certification at least twice in the last three years.
