I have the latest Norton Antivirus Protection. In reading some posts, i have read that sometimes a malware virus may infect even if one has protection. Is there a product that effectively does both?

I dont even have a Antivirus installed anymore. Im using virtual environment the few times my brain wanna open some nasty unknown archive or executable. And standard SP2/3 XP professional FW :thumbsup:

Firefox and Noflash/adblock together with a Javascript/popup button blocker to get rid of the annoying unclosable boxes on some sites.. <_<

But im very aware of my security so i dont use for example following
Java
PDF or related readers
Microsoft Office applications
IE

Mostly gaming and watching movies, music etc

I agree with Sightless. No security product can detect 100% of the threats out there. That's why you should be using a layered protection strategy which is not relying on just an antivirus, but having additional protection such as a host file, anti-malware like Malwarebytes' Pro, HIPS etc.
