Yes. Malwarebytes is not a traditional antivirus or antispyware program. The free version (with on demand scanning, no real time scanning) is pretty much all you need. From the Malwarebytes info page: Works Well With Others - Cooperative functionality.

Yes you can. Malwarebytes has been specifically written to operate alongside more traditional anti-virus products such that they do not 'interfere' with one another. All the major anti-virus products have been catered for, including MSE, Avast, Kaspersky, Norton and so-on-and-so-forth.
