Avast works best with comodo internet security. However, one must tame the hips system of comodo because it can become annoying.

Well, if as I suspect the comodo internet security comes with an anti-virus element then that should at the least be disabled, but preferably uninstalled. With suite style applications (comodo internet security) this may mean a complete uninstall followed by a custom install and deselect the antivirus element.

Having two resident scanners installed is not recommended as rather than provide twice the protection it can cause conflicts that could leave you more vulnerable.
A complete uninstall is not necessary. Individual components of CIS can be installed/uninstalled in Add/Remove.
