troubleshooting Question

If I have AVG, do I need Spybot Search and Destroy?

I got infected with a virus called AntiVirus Pro.  I finally managed to get rid of it using Spybot Search & Destroy.  Norton failed, HijackThis failed ...
But anyway, for the future:  The Antivirus I'm used to using is AVG Free, Version 8.  
Can I please hear some opinions ... If I have all my MS updates current, is AVG Free sufficient protection generally speaking?  I really don't want to slow my machine down by having two perhaps-competing products running in the background.

Thanks a lot!
