If it makes you feel any better
I use MSE
Scan with Malwarebytes
Use WinPatrol (a pseudo anti virus, with a lot of other good features)
and eset on line scan.
Im protected.

I've used MSE since beta, tested Avast 6 the other day, locked up my computer, sticking with MSE

Also use MBAM & Hitman Pro for secondary scanners.
