If you want the internet security, it all comes together I think.

I always tell everyone I know to stay away from Norton and get ZoneAlarm Security Suite instead. Its a lighter and better program.

Aeclptic is right. Norton does use alot of resources and can slow your PC down, I had it but I didn't like the fact it was heavy on resources and that it didn't detect much and especially that it made my computer unstable. Go with something else, like Aecliptic said go with ZoneAlarm Security Suite instead because it's lighter and bettter. I like zone alarm and I haven't tried the security suite, i've heard great things about it.

The Security Suite gives you a firewall, anti-virus, and anti-spyware application. And you also get a bunch of other internet settings you can control.
