I'mn currently running Avira and ccleaner on my new laptop. Can/should I also have spybot and malware or will they all clash?

ccleaner is not an AV or anti-spyware. so NO spybot or malwarebytes wont clash.

If you want to use an extra AV although you don't have to, you can use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free which won't clash with Avira because it does not have real time protection but is an effective malware scanner and has strong removal tools which do come in handy.
