You can install both as they do different things

Firewalls shouldn't slow things down considerably

Have you tried Comodo

Set a restore point before installing anything

The Windows firewall blocks incoming data only

Most third party firewalls block incoming and outgoing data, which would be necessary if you loaded something errant on to the PC from a disc

I know this is a tad off topic, but i would suggest using a different anti-virus as Nortons contains many 'back-doors'. If interested, AVG isn't such a bad anti-virus, can get a free version of that but i don't think it contains a firewall. I currently use NOD32 which i find is pretty good.
