malwarebytes free is just a scanner and doesn't offer real time protection (i.e. active scanning) unless you purchase the pro version.

Security Essentials has been fine for me. I always run a Malwarebytes scan every few weeks just to be sure though.

No Anti-Virus will catch 100% of viruses as they are constantly evolving and more being released each day.

Your friend can use both Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes.

I think everybody is using both of them
