Is it ZoneAlarm suit that includes Antivirus, antispyware, firewall and antispam? If yes, then you don't need the Avast because you will have two AV running and that's not good.
There are endless possibilities to protect the computer but for all practical purposes you just need a good antivirus, a good antispyware with real time protection, a good firewall and 2-3 scan programs to run periodically. We look for free programs.
My choice for for AV is Avast which, in my opinion is a great product. For antispyware I use Spyware Terminator. It's a little known but a really smart program that also warn you before changes to the registry are being made (something like the Tea Timer of Spybot). For a firewall I use XP's. Good enough for me. In the past I used Sygate which gave me tons of problems and ZoneAlarm which made life difficult when trying to set a local network. By removing it the computer became noticeably faster.
For periodic scans I use Ad-Aware, Spybot and AVG antispyware.
