Well... As I have never personally used this combo I cannot tell about the compatibility. Nevertheless, there's a reason why Norton is a full suite and not just an antivirus :) I would stick with it and tweak it for best protection.

2 firewalls and 2 behavior blockers, at Same time, not a good practice.

Norton Security Deluxe has a firewall.
Therefore, it is not recommended to install Comodo firewall. But you may install Comodo Cloud, instead.
What for, Norton has all what the user needs.

Besides from firewall and SONAR, Norton has one of the most powerful signatures and removal processes IMO. It's always the first on-demand scanner (NPE) to detect and remove any threat it founds, even @Lockdown's favourites (zero-day malware) lol

Can people stop recommending to stockpile softs on top of suites...
Suites properly set don't need other softs, if the user need more, either he finds a better suite or he doesn't need a suite and rather use combos of standalone single-purpose softs.

Nevertheless, since the original poster was looking for an additional security app to enhance protection, I would still suggest OSArmor, for enhanced script protection. OSArmor can be successfully used together with an AV suite.

+1 on this one

As Umbra mentions, softs should not be piled with suites, but OSA can't be consider even software lol, more like a complement and compatible with almost everything!

OSA is, from its dev mouth, an hybrid between an anti-exe and behavior blocker, so it is a soft. it has processes, startup entries, and services.
Sure it won't break stuff but may be redundant with Norton's Sonar.

SysHardener would be a better choice, it is just automatized tweaks.

It is easy to understand if you compare it to an analog audio set. It is the difference whether you use everything set, or combine by acquiring an amplifier or deck alone.
The software recommended here has an auxiliary role such as equalizer.
