If you really want to supplement MSE or Windows Defender (Win 8) use something like WinPatrol, RegRun, or others which look for actions of malware instead running the same type of actions as an antivirus.

I for one, love the MSE suite and use it on all of my computers and recommend it all the time. It is the perfect mix of protection and convenience.
