Ditch the windoze if you can. There are many good alternatives to replace it, BSD flavors, Linux, etc. But if you absolutely have to use windows, then you may have to deal with it.
I am running Vista on my wife's laptop for last few years and Norton 360 4.0 and so far did not have any issues.
Just be careful when something pops for admin password and really think twice before
clicking yes. If not sure, cancel it. Use standard user account with limited privileges and let only one person to do any updates, installs etc == only ONE administrator.
Personally I ditched windoze long time ago, and I am running OpenBSD on all my laptops. I also like FreeBSD.
It is just a matter of preference. Whatever operating system works for you and get the
work done.
Good luck.
