Norton security on my Windows PC keeps asking me to install their version of internet security safe web, antiphishing, and banking protection. Which I have not done. Will installing this conflict with Mozilla and DuckDuckgo.com? They have their own internet security, correct, or is it wise to install this along with Mozilla Firefox and DuckDuckGo.co? Can anybody with this knowledge answer this?

You do not need to install Norton, or any additional anti-virus.

This is all you need:

Uninstall all Norton, McAfee, etc. Keep windows up to date.

Norton Safe Web isn't much different than DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials. It shouldn't cause any conflicts if you have them installed together but, it would probably be an unnecessary redundancy.
