Excerpt: PC users have relied on Symantec's utilities for more than a decade. Extremely well designed, Norton SystemWorks 2001 Standard Edition benefits from Symantec's years of experience. Unlike Ontrack SystemSuite, SystemWorks is organized by program rather than by task, and most of the components were originally designed as separate products. Symantec, however, has done an excellent job of melding the application into a well-integrated package with a consistent interface.
Summary: We liked the idea of being able to buy a cheaper package that gives you all the useful tools found in SystemWorks without forcing you to opt for Norton AntiVirus. There are lots of other virus protection suites on the market, some of which cost nothing. However, it's a good idea to opt for a package such as this that fills in the gaps left by free products.
