    I like Norton's Internet Security that is made by Symantec. If you wish to get some freeware Avast Anti Virus and AVG are the best out there. I would choose Avast over AVG cause it has a stronger protection than AVG.

    It depends,some programs work better together than others allowing you to run more than one antivirus at a time but you shouldn't run more than one firewall at a time unless the other firewall is "windows firewall".
    Norton is known not to work very well with other programs,but when i posted the previous post,i was expecting you to have not bought an antivirus yet.

    You're not giving me headache at all,I'm here to help.

    I wouldn't run two firewalls at the same time unless on of the two firewalls is "windows firewall",reason being that windows firewall isn't very powerful, so it won't affect the process of the other firewall running.

    well,i am using norton virus but it came with my comp.i think its a 3months trial.and i had spysweeper for awhile so i installed it back on my computer.

    I've never been a fan of norton because it uses to much Ram
    and doesn't always detect dangerous viruses.

    If i were you,I'd erase norton and follow the guide i gave you a link to,but that's me.
