Usefulness of Norton System Works

  cymbo 21:21 05 Jul 2005

Hi, Could I ask for members opinions of the usefulness of Norton System Works. I have it installed on my computer (but not the anti virus option). It came as part of the software bundle I received upon buying the computer and apart from using the "one button check up and win doctor" I have little use for it. I am having a clear out of little used programs.

it is very useful for repairing invalid shortcuts
and the find and fix problems is excellent for repairing windows problems.I also only use it for this and not the anti-virus.

There is a defragment program in System Works. But I can't stand NSW anymore as it damaged my registry, thus having to format my machine

Iuse the Fast and safe clean up quite a lot.

Yes, I was wondering about broken shortcuts in the "one button check up". Is there any other program that repairs these errors? The entry in "Add or Remove Programs for NSW does not state how many Mbs of disk it takes up and I thought it might be rather large.

Thanks for your posting. Luckily I haven't had any registry damage that I am aware of.

I beleive the whole package is about 70mb so not that big

Thanks for your entry. I haven't used that option for a long time. I think I'll hold fire on removing NSW and try to properly evaluate it.

Thank You.

Thanks, 70 Mbs isn't too bad. I missed out the word "space" after disk. I must pay more attention to what I'm typing.
