It is an antispyware application that has some features to actively protect your computer. It will not conflict with Norton and is a good product.
Spybot S&D (free version requires manual updating)
Here are some other antispyware applications you may want to look at:
Adaware from Lavasoft (free version requires automatic updating)
(These programs can be run in Safe Mode after installation and updating)
This is also free and requires you to check for and enable updates manually once a week or so. It uses no system resources. It blocks spyware before it installs.
SpywareBlaster (inoculates, not a spyware removal tool)

I ran spybot with Nortons for several years. The only problems I had was Nortons Auto-update feature, which inexplicably blew up. I reinstalled the Nortons updater and all was well.
I also ran Ad-Aware PE / 2007, SuperAntiSpyware at the same time (with Nortons) without any problems.
Hope this helps

Spybot search and destroy is a malware/spyware removal program. It should be compatible with Norton and if it isn't then it's Norton's fault. It's not that good a product.
