Anti-Virus - more than one?

I have recently downloaded Security software which includes Firewall, Anti-Virus,Parental control and Spyware.
Would it be wise to uninstall Zone Alarm and my other Spyware stuff?

Protection rules

1 firewall

1 antivirus

Two AV's will work as long as only one can access memory. Most people who think they know, Just say no it will not work, but that’s not true.

Sometimes the second Av will find the 1st Av virus definitions, think they are viruses and delete them.
