Yes they will work fine. Just make sure only one is using realtime protection. I've ran AVG, spybot, adaware and windows defender on the same computer but only AVG used realtime protection. I never had a problem with anything either.

Like Troy, I also use AVG, Spybot and AdAware. I only have AVG doing realtime protection while I do regular scans using Spybot and AdAware as they tend to find things the other miss.
