My PC runs very slow after installing AVG or Lavasoft or any other pc/protective program; I'm on 750 kbps with my ISP and am solely using Zonealarm Firewall at the moment; why does my pc become like a brick? any ideas out there, anyone?

Just to check, do you mean your PC is sluggish when these programs are scanning? as I think that is normal. However if it is sluggish simply after loading then that is different

Have you checked in run/msconfig/startup to see how many programs are being loaded at start up.

Thanks for return input guys; I always only load one program at a time to avoid complications of any sort, the pc becomes sluggish after loading, it's also sluggish when scanning (which as you say is normal), but as long as the program is on my hard drive it stays sluggish, as soon as I unstall the program, the pc speed returns to 750 kbps.
