Hi,

In your case, no, its better not to install MSE since AVast and MSE might conflict with one another. A better option for an additional layer of security in this case, is to use an online scanner such as that linked below:

ESET :: Get a FREE Online Virus Scan

You have got a good setup. In case you are not happy with the performance of Avast, give MSE a try.
