I have Nortons anti virus and there firewall It is always on and I never turn it off especially as I am on broadband as well. For piece of mind keep them on all the time you are online.

Firewall and antivirus are two different things, though related. You definitely need antivirus. A firewall is essential for always-on connections, less so for dial up.
