As a rule you shouldn't have two antiviruses installed and running similtaneously. They can interfere with each others processes causing virus false alarms and can slow the PC down and in some cases lock it as they both try to access the same system files.
As for which is better, that's a bit harder. Both AVG and McAfee are trusted antiviruses but i think the AVG free version being free and comparable probably edges it.
