First make sure that your AV is up to date then run a full system scan.

Yup!
nothing particularly bad there - but it's an indicator that you may need to review your ideas of what is 'acceptable' to install.

One can run two antivirus programs; only one of the two has its real time shields active; both can have non-overlapping scheduled scans. I have both Avast and Avira, one w/activated real time shields, both running scans.

OK I've quarantined those 5 PUP things.
How can I be sure that I've not got any other 'unwanted' stuff?
What else should I run?

MBAM is one of the best AM it can also detect rootkits....Viruses...etc.
It comes with chameleon.com*.exe in the installation path.
For best scanner there is for viruses and malware services there is RKill.exe(NAMED: iexplorer.exe) only 1MB size.
If you want to ultimately secure...The BD RescueCD that Almost anyone would rate it 5 stars is a rescue disk used to detect and remove many viruses and trojans that boot with the computer it even works against the malware that makes the explorer.exe stop working in normal mode.
