Another vote for MSE here. Hell, I'd recommend MSE over most anti-virus software, paid or free.

Should I run Windows Defender along with MSE? How do they affect eachother?

In my opinion Firewall, MSE and malwarebytes. Malwarebytes is very good and it is not really looking for the same thing as MSE
