I use Avast myself and personally I would say to keep it. Disable Comodo AV.

Comodo Firewall is very good as a free one but it's not the most user-friendly. can be a bit confusing for many people, including me, and I regard myself as being quite technically proficient with computers. Now Outpost Firewall I can totally understand and that's what I use (the 'paid for' version).
The free version is here: http://download.cnet...4-10913746.html

However, I believe the best, most trustworthy firewall & AV software is in the commercial sector and hence I'm prepared to pay for it.
Free application software, however, is always welcome by me if it suits my needs.
