You should definitely remove one of them - more than one anti-virus can seriously slow down a PC. Keep the one you prefer.

You shouldn't have more than ONE AntiVirus program and ONE Firewall installed on your machine at any one given time....
If have more than one of these programs installed, they are likely to conflict with each other and fail to protect you

Uninstalling one of them is personal choice. Avast! and AVG FREE both have positive and negative points.
So it is basically which one you prefer
