Does anyone know if Norton's System Works is any better or has better features and/or utilities than Norton Utilities?

Thanks in advance

Norton System Works, has Norton Utilities plus more.

In System Works you get, Antivirus, Utilities, Cleansweep, and Roxio's Go Back.

Norton Utilities, contains Speed Disk a defragger, Disk Doctor which is essentially a ScanDisk replacement, WinDoctor, and other tools.

Check out


for more information.

I would hold off purchasing at the moment, as you could win one if you provide a good answer to a post on PressF1 this month. Also version 2002 is out now, so make sure you don''t get fobbed off with 2001 from a shop (unless its discounted greatly).

Good Luck with your decision

Don't buy a discounted older copy if you plan to use it on windowsXP, as windows will disable it, telling you the files are incompatible.

I ran System Works for over a year and ended up uninstalling it. Slowed my system right down and didn't really tell you how to get out of a problem - the responses went along the lines of 'do this if you want but don't blame us if it all goes wrong'

Can the components of SystemWorks, i.e. Antivirus, Utilities, Ghost, be installed separately or are they all integrated (i.e. If you install one, you install them all)?
