Looking for a new piece of virus protection! Any suggestions?

As the title suggests, I am looking for a new, reliable piece of virus protection software to use! What would you guys recommend that I use?

Right now I am currently just using Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes, but I feel as if I should have something more! Please help! Thank you in advance!

WinPatrol (free and paid) has real-time protection BillP Studios - WinPatrol 2012
It checks for system changes.
I've read some people feel there are too many popup warnings.
I don't have that problem.
It depends on how much you install/uninstall programs, make system configuration changes, etc.
You can try it for free and see how you like it.
Malwarebytes offers free and a paid versions.
The free version does NOT have real-time protection.
The paid (Pro) version does have real-time protection.
The Pro version is a one-time fee, lifetime license, no annual fees.
If you are using the free version you could upgrade to Pro.
If you play around with new programs a lot you could also consider
Using a VM (Virtual Machine)
Browser configuration and add-ons can also help with additional security.

Common sense, safe surfing, and reading before clicking are the best protection.
