Why does Norton AV 2005 promtp to turn off Windows Firewall on WinXP SP2?

I know that NAV 2005 contains new functionallity: (Internet Worm Protection stops certain damaging Internet worms at their attempted point of entry) but is this as secure as the Windows XP SP2 firewall if it's only blocking worms.

Is it best to use NAV 2005 and it's Internet Worm protection only i.e. with the Windows Firewall turned off

OR

Is it best to use Windows Firewall and NAV 2005?

Any comments will be appreciated.

Neil
