I can't seem to find the answer anywhere, so I'll just go ahead and ask it here. I'm curious about what kind of malware am I covered against by using Norton Antivirus and the antivirus only.

I will see if I can answer this.
Norton AntiVirus 2012 protects you against today's "rapid-fire" attacks, for which "signatures" don't yet exist. This is done with Norton Insight Network, which uses Symantec's global security network to extract information about the very latest threats and prevent them from getting to your computer. Also, the SONAR 4 technology uses online intelligence and proactive monitoring to detect and block new threats. Finally, Norton Pulse Updates allow frequent, small updates of Norton AntiVirus 2012's threat database, meaning it is as current as can be in terms of latest threat detection.
W W W = Wild Wild West. Be careful out there!
