Personally, i think norton antivirus is horrible, over-priced, slow, anything that threatens its existence on your computer it flags as a high level threat and/or a virus.

AVG free ftw.

Yup I've seen NIS crap out systems and sometimes the firewall doesn't work correctly...

I would skip NIS and get Microsoft Security Essentials + AVG or antivir. Both are free.

Edit: Whoops meant MSE not WD. lol

I'll second the notion that Norton blows. I use Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Firewall/Defender. I've never had a problem and I've been using MSE since it was released. Some people aren't fans of MSE just because it is a Microsoft product, but I really like it. I've also used AVG, antivir and avast in the past and they all worked well for me. I think avast was the first 64bit av program I used and it worked great for me on XP x64.

Microsoft Security Essentials + Windows Firewall/Defender for me.
