I do not have an antivirus installed. I do scan with the ESET online scanner.

MalwareBytes is one of my favorite, but Avast isn't bad.

Historically I used AVG, but their popups started to get quite annoying for me.

Currently, I use a combination of AVIRA & Malwarebytes.
AVIRA took a little getting used to, as it adds a (very small) dropdown option inside your browser windows, giving you real-time warnings etc.

I started using AVIRA after seeing it included (and topping some) in a variety of lists 12 months, including Tom'sGuide:
http://www.tomsguide.com/us/best-antivirus,review-2588-...

I feel my browsing/download habits are pretty reflective of somewhere in the 'normal' to 'advanced' user - essentially, I don't follow sketchy links, and don't download clearly questionable files (if I can avoid it!), so I may not have put it through all the required paces for other users.

Avast and make sure you get it setup for boot scans. Boot scan is a must have.
