I am using Firefox as my Browser:

Will MBAM Free, SuperAntiSpyware Free and MSE.

With a load of protection extensions:
AS Number 1.6
BetterPrivacy
BitDefender QuickScan
BrowserProtect
Click&Clean
Ghostery
NoScript
OptimizeGoogle
Procon Latte Content Filter
QuickJava
WOT
NoRedirect (currently disabled)
RedirectRemover (currently disabled)
RequestPolicy (currently disabled).

Might be a bit overkill but I like to be safe

Pretty much what I use now, I configure about 100 machines a year for a non-profit and I try to protect them from themselves as much as I can. Good config..
