Is it really worth having especailly as it appears to slow down the machine in XP professional...I get an annoying access denied C drive displayed after installing can i make it go away...?

Personally I have gone off Norton Systemworks; there was a time that I loved it but recent years it has become too bloated for my liking. There are many other products out there which do the same thing without needing all the resources nor need to run in the background.

remove it from the control panel, make sure you logged on as adminstrator and re install it.

I have had norton for years & like it. occasionally it goes belly up with no obvious reason or easy repair. I have found over the years to delete the program & reinstall then it works ok.

I've been using NSW for some time now, and have used other Norton products for several years. I have found that if you install it exactly as per the instructions there are no problems. Re-installation is also easy.

As for your access denied message, this is a known issue. Go here for the solution:

I also experienced a slower system after installing GoBack. Norton's Tech Support said I had to disable ALL non-Microsoft services before installing. After doing this, then re-enabling them afterwards Windows XP Pro was whizzing along as normal.
