I use Microsoft Security Essentials 4 along with the occasional scan with Malwarebytes Antimalware. I also use Windows Firewall and common sense
Also, NEVER have more than 1 realtime antivirus software on your pc. It looks like you have several. You need to remove all except Microsoft Security Essentials. Sometimes they can conflict and reduce your protection.

I don't search for and use any pirated software, and I don't download music and movies
I leave UAC enabled and use the Windows firewall
I run Microsoft Security Essentials
I occasionally scan with MalwareBytes
I run Spyware Blaster from time to time (Although I don't think it really does anything)

I don't click links on websites or facebook for free stuff, look at this outrageous photo, click to see how embarrased this person is, etc.

Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes Free - so far so good - but then I am very careful with what I download and which sites I visit.
