Norton SystemWorks 2006 Premier

3 weeks ago
  • Summary: The core utilities in Norton SystemWorks 2006 Premier lack newer options found elsewhere; some older utilities are simply deficient; it leaves Windows 98 and Me users out in the cold.
  • Pros: Norton SystemWorks 2006 Premier provides basic system utilities plus an excellent backup/recovery tool in Norton Ghost.
  • Cons: Norton SystemWorks 2006 Premier needs a uniform help system, an updated interface, support for older Windows versions, and new tools like those found in other hard disk utility packages.

Norton SystemWorks 2001 Standard Edition

PC Magazine
26 June 2008
  • 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.
  • Pros: Robust protection, User Interface
  • Cons: None to speak of
