If you loaded the full Comodo Internet security and not just the firewall putting avast! on in addition has given you two AV programs. This is pretty near top of the list on things to avoid as they rarely coexist harmoniously and they can foul things up most spectacularly. Remove one ASAP.

You need
1 AV
1 Firewall
as much antispy as you like

Commdo and Avast will conflict As CIS has antivirus
CIS and AVast also have antispyware built in

What op system?

If Winows XP then Commodo
spyware blaster and superantispyware

If WIndows Vista / 7
then Windows own firewall
Avast (My personal choice)
SywareBlaster
SuperAntispware
