Zonealarm is free and offers plenty of protection. Norton isn't on the same level but good if you don't search too often.
Even better way though is to buy a router with a NAT firewall. Then use Norton for Antivirus and Zone Alarm for application control (tell what applications can access the internet, act like a server etc...), then something else for privacy.
