It's my understanding that it is best not to have more than 1 firewall and not more than one real-time anti-virus program running at any given time. I believe that is why Microsoft's firewall gets disabled when a Norton product that has a firewall running is in place but one still needs an a/v (hopefully real-time) program running.
I would think the programs for running a firewall and a/v are your choice. If you wish to continue using (I assume you are) NIS you can use anti-virus scanners such as Malwarebytes and they should not present an issue as long as they don't have the real-time feature enabled.
