Security Program Compatibilty

Specs: Windows XP
Please, won't somebody help me? I don't know much about computers. I have a PC with Windows XP and I am on dial-up (I know!), and I want to put on it AVG Free, SpyBot, COMODO and Ad-Aware. As I understand, I can have one firewall (COMODO) and one anti-virus (AVG) on my computer, but more than one anti-spy or anti-malware program (I want to use free programs, by the way).

My first question is, Are these 4 programs compatible, or will they overload my old computer? and, are all 4 together a necessary or a good idea? Are these the only security programs that I need? Am I missing something? (I find this technical stuff difficult to cope with, so please don't suggest alternative programs unless I have picked a bad one and there's a significantly better alternative).

My second question is, Does not COMODO have an anti-virus component, and does this mean I will have a conflict with the other anti-virus program (AVG)? Would I have to not install the anti-virus component of COMODO?

Please, explain to me simply, step by step, as if I was 10 years old; in a nut shell I am looking to protect my computer using free programs.

Thanks for your help

Please see easy to understand and follow.

As your on dialup,you will be best served by downloading the programs and saving (not run) from a broadband computer and burn them to disc or flashdrive and then install them on your computer.
