Hello Flyhigh427 and welcome!
Norton Internet Security has it's own superior Firewall so no other firewall should be used. During installation, by default, NIS will turn off your Windows Firewall. If you have a third party Firewall it should be completely uninstalled using any special removal tools recommended by that manufacturer.
Yes, NIS will automatically scan iso and zip files. From the Help section:
Compressed Files Scan
Scans and repairs the files inside compressed files.
By default, Compressed Files Scan option is turned on. In this case, Norton Internet Security scans and detects viruses and other security risks in the files within compressed files.
The other options in this section are configurable only when you turn on the Compressed Files Scan option. These settings include the following:
Data Extraction Limit
Norton Internet Security extracts and scans maximum of 2-GB data from a compressed file. This way, Data Extraction Limit prevents the scan from being stuck up with a single compressed file that contains a large amount of data.
Remove Infected Compressed Files
You can turn on this option if you want Norton Internet Security to delete the infected compressed files automatically from your computer. However, Norton Internet Security gives you the greatest control over low-risk items and the items that require your attention. Norton Internet Security provides this control when the Low Risks option, under Computer Scans is configured to Ask Me.
Hope that helps!
