is 2 antivirus excessive

hi i have always used avg free. It has worked well, but was wondering whether it "cover all bases" is it good to have another anti virus aswell or will the performance hit be too great to value this. I recently have downloaded microsoft security essentials as the possible other. One of the reasons i ask is that it i trialled a different anti virus and did a scan and it found about 10- 15 threats although these could have been cookies, i then did an avg and it didn't discover these. (the trail couldn't heal as you had to pay, or something). However about a week later i did notice avg pick up the same threats leaving me to feel it dosn't fully protect the computer. If neither of these is an option does anyone have a recommendation thats 100% free.
