No King Kong, but it tries to help clean your computer ... given the software limits.

mcv57, Amazon

  • Summary: Yes, this Utility software will function with 8.1 Windows (HP Laptop), but is not as effective in cleaning the operating system as other "aggressive" software tools (maybe for the better .... could crash system otherwise). The functionality is questionable; in other words, when operating the performance program, the performance indicator does not reflect correction input - I believe the limits of the program to correct given errors is restricted by the operating system...

For the price this is good software to fix basic system issues

James Jenkins, Amazon
8 September 2014
  • Summary: Does not correct all of the issues. For the price this is good software to fix basic system issues. I have found that the software does not clean history thoroughly. I have had to do that manually in order to clean out all of history and temporary files. I recommend the day to day user shop for software that has a few more features to repair disk space and registry.

Average Software

Conner Macleod "Aficionado", Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: I tested Norton Utilities on two separate systems, a laptop and a tower PC, both with solid state drives. For systems with solid state drives (aka SSD), I'd say this product is more or less useless because it can't be used to defrag the drive, it's only for system with hard disk drives (HDD).

Norton Utilities

Basil MacDougal, Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: The Norton Utilities claims to fix and free up common problems and memory by deleting certain files (duplicates and unused programs). To be honest, after running the program, I didn't notice a big change in my computer speed. Maybe a little, but I don't know. The thing is, my computer was never extremely slow to begin with because I manually delete old files and programs myself. So, for me, I don't think the program was of great benefit.

Average Tune-Up Software that did not break too much stuff

Thomas Wikman "Texas Swede", Amazon
26 March 2013
  • Summary: Tune Up applications sometimes break stuff and I've had my share of bad experiences. Norton Utilities 16.0 did do some things I did not like. For example, the first initial scan removed all browser history and cookies including my stored passwords. Well, that is configurable and at least it did not cause any major havoc. I've had other tune up applications (Fix It! Utilities Professional and PC Health Advisor) do some really bad things to my computer.

  • Excerpt: So an opinion on Norton?s personal firewall, I bet they all start with this is simple and protects my computer etc, etc, bla,h blah, and I recommend them to any one. Well sorry to disappoint you all but I think Symmantec is one of the most underhand companies I have come across. You see we are all in a state of flux with the new operating system windows XP.

  • Summary: Tot voor enkele maanden was ik tevreden met het programma, maar inmiddels heb ik er schoon genoeg van. Telkens verschijnt de foutmelding 8506.421. Een drietal vriendelijke, hulpvaardige medewerkers van Norton heeft geprobeerd het probleem op te lossen. O.a. heeft men een beveiligingsprogramma van ING verwijderd, omdat dit zou conflicteren met het programma van Norton. Echter zonder blijvend resultaat. Na enige tijd herhaalt zich de fout.

  • Summary: Ook ik heb al jaren Norton en ben dik tevreden. Norton is niet goedkoop, maar voor een nieuwe aanschaf let ik altijd goed op aanbiedingen. Mijn laatste kocht ik voor een prikkie via de Telegraaf.
