i've used avira for the most,did have a brief spell with avast but just personal preference really.nothing wrong with avast either.have found avira to be very light on resources tho if thats important to you.

For reference; click here little dated but the basics still apply.

For me, keep it simple;

Avast - antivirus
Winpatrol - to monitor the changes.(does much more)
Malwarebytes - on demand scanner
Spywareblaster - blocker
Ccleaner - keeps the computer tidy.

There are others you can add like Secunia PSI which in turn will help keep your software patched.
