I'd recommend that you keep MSE but run malwarebytes once a month. I think MSE has anti-spyware built in but don't quote me on it!

Microsoft Security Essentials helps defend your computer against spyware, viruses, worms, Trojans, and other malicious software.

Many people supplement their primary anti-malware suite with Malwarebytes free because it seems to find things other products miss. The free version of Malwarebytes is an on-demand scanner and that's usually enough for most people. The paid version offers real time scanning and is supposed to work well with other anti-malware products.

Other on-demand scanners that have been receiving good reviews are HitmanPro, Comodo Cleaning Essentials, and Trend Micro HouseCall.

No product is 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a product everyone would be using it. So having a few tools available is added insurance to keep your computer clean.
