well never had any issues with nortons and apache on my wife's xp box.
personally I run apache on linux, much easier to avoid virus problems.
and there is more system resources available, like the 13 to 18 % of cpu 
time eaten up by windows gui.
add 5 to 10 % for antivirus / firewall and you are losing close to 1/3 
of cpu time.

a friend that teaches networking was running a hosting farm as part of 
his course and using the traffic to compile data about data transfer 
used by 3d graphics community....seems he had max of 5% of cpu in use at 
any time, and was averaging 26 gigabytes of data transfer a day. ( linux 
based servers )
