Let me guess:

You are going to some dodgy and questionable sites.

No antivirus/malware application is foolproof, but some are better than others. What are you using?

Your final layer of security is your own good sense. If you take risks, you will likely get burned sooner or later.

The better anti-malware applications will not even allow you to load certain web sites.

If MalwareBytes picks up anything, re-run the scans until you get Clean Results 3 times in a row.

I would then try out Microsoft Security Essentials and see if that finds anything.

If not, then run a SuperAntiSpyware Scan. Just make sure MalwareBytes is the free version.
