You should have only one anti virus and one firewall,otherwise they will conflict.

Sufficient. If you do a search there are plenty of threads addressing the same question.

good advice in this thread by skidzy click here

you have to get rid of either avg or avira, neither will be effective with the other one scanning, they are both av realtime scanners, as has been said you should only need one.

If it is AVG Anti-Spyware you have and not the Anti-Virus.I would get rid of Windows Defender and keep the rest.

Windows Defender,This from a year and a half ago. click here Just Google for reviews and you will see more of the same.
