Exactly the tools I would suggest.

Avira has very good internet security, real time updates, great overall protection.

Malwarebytes is one of the best malware scanners.

Ccleaner is a great all purpose tool. The most useful tool is probably the registry cleaner.

I concur with Saran and aford, save for the antu virus program. This is a personal preference, but I've never had a problem with AVG Free. I has Avira for awhile, but it seemed inept compared to to AVG, but that's just me.
