I'd stay clear of either of those that you mention.

Norton is a horrible piece of bloatware, which hogs up your system resources and ZoneAlarm really only works well when you scan it at GRC dot com.

My advice is go for a free firewall. Agnitum Outpost or Sygate are the best free ones out there. Alternatively, try Tiny firewall.

My personal preference though; Black Ice Defender from Internet Security Systems. Very easy to configure and works well with AVG Free Edition
