Firewall – Simply put, a firewall is an application, or a hardware appliance, designed to block unauthorized access to your computer from the Internet, at the same time permitting authorized communications.
There are many free Firewalls available, but many can be intrusive and not really appropriate for casual computer users. PC tools offers a very robust, uncomplicated, free Firewall, and more information is available here, “ PC Tools Firewall – A Freebie Worth Having”.
Antimalware – A front line antimalware application is absolutely critical to avoid system infection. Your primary application should be supplemented by an on-demand scanner (part of the stacking approach).
There is no harm in downloading more than one antimalware application to be used as a secondary scanner. In fact, doing so can be advantageous. However, be sure NOT to allow more than one application to autostart, in order to prevent conflicts. For a list and download links to recommended free antimalware applications, including secondary scanners, see “Tech Thoughts Top 8 Free Antimalware Applications”, on this site.
Antivirus – An antivirus application is another critical component in a layered defense strategy to ensure that if a malicious program is detected, it will be stopped dead in its tracks!

Should you wish to uninstall your Norton AV software later use the appropriate uninstall tool from Norton.
If problems then occur as a result I suggest you open a new thread at our Forum to seek further help.
