It is not advisable to use two Antivirus programs at once as it may cause conflicts. Choose one or the other and stay with it. My personal opinion is that Avast is a LOT better than Norton's.

Avast, in my personal opinion, IS better than Norton.

More people have issues with Norton, than they do actually successfully using Norton.

If you'd like something Safe-to-run Side-by-Side with Avast, I'd recommend ThreatFire. It's a Free "Addon" for current Security Applications.

Such as what? Please specify and give examples. I'm currently running Avast! on all my OSes, both 32-bit and 64-bit, and I haven't had any issues whatsoever.
