Windows 7: AV, Antimalware, anti-spyware, firewall software combination

What software combinatin should I use with Avast and Zone Alarm for malware/spyware? Or are these two software enough?
In addition to any software software solutions, personally, I would also suggest doing it all behind an NAT router, and to use a Standard User Account for everyday web browsing.

any new anti-spyware/malware software
So I've been using Superantispyware, malwarebytes, spywareblaster, adaware, and spybot. But I've eliminated Spybot and adaware because spybot messed up one of my programs and adaware just works too slow when scanning. So I'm wondering is there any new software I could check out?
