Never really tested out MSE in a long time. It wasn't decent. I try to avoid AV where possible, but there are sometimes reasons for it. Small foot print and easily disabled when need to be. I'm not one for running Malwarebytes frequently. One thing I've noticed is that if you maintain a clean system you really don't need it.
Avast has been my goto in recent years. Stinger by McAfee kills the AV but it'll clean majority of Malware that an AV cannot remove. I'm pretty hard on my system for installed applications, either trialing or changing up. I prefer my own hand over the likes of Malwarebytes, Ccleaner, et al.
As for the original question, the TH chart is a good comparative.
