My Norton firewall is about to expire, and as they want £20 to update i was thinking of using the XP firewall,or even changing my whole security package. Any advise would be welcome.

Use free version of ZoneAlarm, search Google for it.
it works far better than Norton.

I just uninstalled all of Norton and have now got AVg antivirus and Zonealarm firewall best thing i ever done was to get rid of norton cause i couldnt update it and only way was to uninstall and re-install as it was already on the computer i thought it was best just to get rid of it .

Don't fix it. My experiance is that if NAV/NIS works for you then stick with it and pay the £20.
