How much virus protection?

I am a beginner and have XP Home.
I have also got Norton Antivirus and downloaded two 'freebies' -AVG and Zonealarm. Have I got too much? I was told that Norton could be 'ditched' and wonder what others reckon. I have also been told that I should run 'Housecall'now and again. Is this belt & braces? Very confused!!

One anti virus ONLY.

One firewall ONLY - this includes the XP Firewall.

Personally i would ditch Norton and keep AVG.

If AVG is up to date Housecall is not needed.
