    I use both AVG AV 2013. This is a good AV/AM app. I also run MalwareBytes Antimalware Pro in conjunction with my AV/AM app. The Pro version will run in real time and plays well with the AV/AM app.

    Howard,

    I'll second Medico's advice. I use Malwarebytes Pro in conjunction with Microsoft Security Essentials on Win-7 and Microsoft Defender on Win-8 works well with both.
    I'd also recommend Windows Defender Offline for once a month scans. HTH
