I wouldn't use Norton, I try finding good little freeware programs.
I found an antivirus program called AntivirXP which scans faster than Norton does, and it found 28 viruses, Norton didn't find any though.
for a Firewall, I use a prog called Look 'n' Stop Lite, fully customisable, free, and light on resources.
