Hi guys. So, I have Avira free antivirus. Can I still install for example Norton web security addon for Firefox? Will there be any problems between my installed antivirus and the Norton addon? Sorry if this is a noob question, but there you go :) Any help would be appriciated. Thanks in advance for any reply.

No having more then one A/V will cause each to cancel the other out. I would avoid anything Norton as that will be more bloatware and most likely affect your Browsing rather then protect your system. Avira is more then suffice and it most likely check your web as well. Adding more A/V doesn't protect you more it adds more holes for Virus to get past.
