Hi there,
I too am not a great fan of Norton. But.............. a lot of users like it
because of simplicity of use and it is the whole caboodle in one - no need
to install multiple programs - each that does it's own thing.
Again it is user preference , Personally I would say if everything is
working great and you feel safe , then don't install it . If you do then you
will have to get rid of your current AV program.

Need some "opinions" - - - 

My daughter bought me a copy of Norton SystemWorks 2003 for my birthday.  I
have been using AVG for  virus control,  Zone Alarm (free) for Internet
protection, and Ontrack's System Suite for  registry cleanup.  Norton
PURPORTEDLY does all those functions. At least that's what my daughter
claims. (  She has the Norton package on her PC and says it works just
I've heard some NEGATIVE comments about Norton in the past and I'm wondering
if anyone would share their experiences with me, on this subject.  Also, if
I do  install the Norton, (I should say Symantic, since Norton is long since
gone from that package) 
Will I (Should I) have to remove my existing protective programs.???
TIA, Jupiter Matt
