Hi chris2011,

A firewall will certainly not think that something is a virus since it doesn't have that ability. If Norton thinks that a normal healthy program is infected you should report it to Symantec as false positive and Symantec will correct the virus database in Norton.
It shouldn't be any problems with running those two programs, but you can install the trial version of Lavasoft Personal Firewall, before you pay, to be sure.

You are welcome :o
I think your friend mixed it up with having two products of the same type, that is having two antivirus programs or two firewalls, then they might conflict.

I'm using McAfee Antivirus. Whats the difference between Lavasoft personal firewall and my antivirus? Can you give the features of this software because I'm tired of my personal antivirus because its very sensitive. I cant even open my games such as Left for Dead and NBA2k12

Hi ledzef,

Antivirus and firewall are totally different types of programs and cannot replace each other.
Since this is Lavasoft's forum for Ad-Aware, they, of course, recommends that you replace McAfee antivirus with Ad-Aware Internet Security http://www.lavasoft.com/
