Since Anti-viruses and anti-spyware applications generally look for different things, there should be no reason for any conflict. Where you will get problems is with having two AVs (especially if both provide real-time protection); these will often conflict.
Using CCleaner (just be extremely careful since it is a very powerful application, and should be used with EXTREME CAUTION when deleting any files recommended) or any "on demand" application will not cause conflicts, either, if you do not scan your hard drive with more than one at a time.
I hope this answers your questions, but if you need additional clarification, please post back in a reply.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

i don't think CCleaner and Hijackthis are antivriuses/antispywares/antimalwares

HijackThis is an advanced tool that requires advanced knowledge about the Windows Operating System. Most of the log entries are required to run a computer and removing essential ones can potentially cause serious damage such as your Internet no longer working or problems with running Windows itself.

HijackThis will scan certain areas of your system and then create a log to help diagnose the presence of undetected malware in these known hiding places. It then relies on experts to interpret the log entries and determine what needs to be fixed. If you do not have advanced knowledge about computers or training in the use of this tool, you should NOT fix anything using HijackThis without consulting a expert as to what to fix.
