Why would you want to do such a thing?

You're liable to have conflicts and confusion.

Pick 2 from the list.

Deduct AVG from the list. As there is Microsoft Security Essentials, it is not required at all.

Trying to create a perfect FREE 'Match'....., please you WILL end up with perfect 'Mess'. See, problem for years with all these AVs is they just can't stand by each other, so they just turns against each other. AV makers are releasing testing versions for almost a decade just to see their compatibility with EVEN a tiny little program that not even we realize it's running. I've tried Bitdefender AV with Comodo Firewall (Trying to get best from both worlds), & end up with blue screen as the start-up. Remove either.....& problem solved.

These many scanners will ONLY conflict in each other's path. Better keep ONLY one AV (MSE, AVG, Avast) as your primary on-access scanner & hold some secondary scanners (MBAM + SuperAntiSpyware) for on demand scanning - ONLY when needed. Good Luck.

Malwarebytes realtime protection in the paid version is designed to co-exist with other AVs but otherwise I wouldn't mix. You are OK using other scanners but not mixing AVs.

I agree with the suggestions here for realtime protection.

I also use, and don't see a mention of WinPatrol.
I've had no conflicts using it with MSE + MBAM Pro.
It is a different type of protection than A/V and A/M - it checks for "system changes"...

Read more about it here - there is a free version

I use MSE and MalwareBytes Pro and have not had a problem since I started using this set up. As stated above, Malwarebytes (free and pro versions) is intended as an AV supplement. It won't do everything an AV does, but it does help a great deal. I hope this was helpful.
