As you have installed Malwarebytes, I recommend that you keep this program and use it to help you stay clean.
The free version will scan your computer and fix the problems it finds but will not provide real-time protection. You must scan regularly to find any threats.
Consider purchasing the full version for active monitoring of threats.
Update Other Programs
Alongside keeping Windows updated, other programs installed on your computer should also be kept current as they too can introduce security risks.
Filehippo Update Checker will scan your computer for out of date programs and provide download links for the updates. This is worth doing on a regular basis.
Unchecky is a small service that runs in the background to help keep those "extra toolbars" and tag along search engines from automatically installing. By automatically directing you to a custom install with all the options unchecked, only what you manually choose and confirm gets installed.

- When browsing the internet, look closely at the links you click on. Some aren't always what they seem
- Avoid Peer to Peer file sharing utilities, these are a minefield of malware infections.
