Avast and MSE are both solid AVs with high detection rates, but if you've already got Avast you might as well keep it. You should not run two AVs, it can cause conflicts which could lead to less protection. Avast also has multiple 'shields' (in particular the network and web shields should be enabled, the others are not necessary) which provide additional protection.
