Don't use 2 AV's (not recommended), when you install Kaspersky then WD will disable itself.

I, too, used Avast for many years and then got fed up with ads., too much RAM and slow shut-down.
Changed to Comodo for HIPS, A?V and FW, regained ~300MB of RAM, programmes opened faster and shut-down is now 4 - 5 secs.
Tried Avira -heavy; Kapersky, similar and a couple of others. Trouble is, most need a separate FW and that's also a difficult choice - usually run Comodo FW without A/V.

No they dont, the built in windows firewall (in os newer then XP) is plenty good for home users
