I'm planning on using one Microsoft Security Essentials for my primary Antivirus suite, so I've got that out of the way. But does anyone else us a secondary, on-demand Antivirus? Nothing that runs in the background, just something you can open and run a sweep on if you suspect your primary isn't catching the bug.

Use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware that was pointed out by area51reopened^, as it is the best tool to have next to the AV program, and its free. MB is updated hourly.

An on demand scanner, won't conflict with an antivirus software.

My vote is for Malwarebytes. Make sure to update it, and run it in safe mode with networking, and you should be good.
