How much security is too much?

From what you have said, I also suspect your computer being infected with a Trojan virus or similar programs that lets hackers or intruders access to your PC files, passwords and other sensitive information. While doing a full drive sweep along with a fresh install of the OS would be the fastest assured fix, I recommend you to go to this section where experts will assist you in scanning and removing any malware on your PC.
And about the PC security part, I think Avast+Malwarebytes is a good enough combo to keep you safe from most common malware threats out there. And no, I wouldn't recommend installing any more antivirus programs since it might cause lag on your PC and conflicts between the antivirus programs. Just be careful while browsing the internet and downloading files and this should do the trick 90% of the time. And the rest, the antivirus programs will handle. Good luck!

Go to the Virus, Spyware, Malware Removal forum, read the first post and follow instructions.
Come back here once you get a clean bill of health if you still have problems.

You say you are using an online email service. Sorry to report that their security is less than perfect. I'd recommend that you download an email client, like Thunderbird, or one of the other free programs, and get your address book behind the firewall of your computer's security program. I am assuming that you do have a real-time security program installed and current.
