    With the worm protection disabled it does leave a hole in the protection it provides

    as long as you are not trying to run two firewalls at the same time. They will conflict and it is possible that they could even lock up your comp.

    I personally run Norton Internet Security 2005 and I think it probably gives the better protection. But the final decision as to the one you want to use is your choice.

    bigc has the internet security suite so he is also protected by the norton firewall. if u only have NAV however, then turn off the internet worm protection and use zonealarm or other firewall.
