I'm under the impression that MSE covers all the bases.

Other Free software that would add to your armoury are Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and CCleaner

If you have MSE you have a competent AV installed so why pay for software that may not give you a great more protection. There is plenty of free AV software available and MSE is well respected. Read this review.

In addition to any antispyware software you have, I would suggest SpywareBlaster which sits in the background and provides an extra layer of protection.

Just remember, only one antivirus. Additional antimalware is fine.

I use MSE and down loaded McAfee, free for one year from my bank a few years ago.

I am sure I had to delete MSE at the request of loading McAfee.
