Zone Alarm is a firewall...AVG is Anti-Virus. They perform completely different functions so they should work well together. That being said, ZoneAlarm has been known to be a bit glitchy at times...if you run into problems involving ZoneAlarm, try the Sygate Firewall instead.

The applications you list are all used and recommended by G2G and should work fine together.
