Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Another year, another upgrade. The 2002 Norton Utilities isn't radically different from the 2001 version, except for a mildly cleaned up interface and added support for Windows XP. Norton Utilities has three main tasks in life, to:--Find and fix computer problems--Improve hard-drive performance--Monitor your PC for potential problems Norton Utilities features Disk Doctor, which works like Windows Scandisk, to hunt down and if possible repair disk defects. WinDoctor fixes problems that slip into the Window's Registry, and the System Information program lays out all your computer's specs, including information on installed drivers, printers, multimedia support, input devices as well as which programs are currently running in your memory. It features Speed Disk, a defrag application that reorganizes and repositions the clusters of information on your hard drive to help programs load faster and run better. Speed Disk works in much the same way as Windows' own defragmenter tool. It uses Window's application logs to restructure your drive for quicker application loading, and it's a bit faster than the Window's version, a nice touch, since defragging your drive is a time-intensive process. One old favourite is still there, the Protected Recycle Bin. This allows you to recover deleted files no matter how they we! re deleted. Finally, monitoring is taken care of by the System Doctor which presents a dashboard-like array of status indicators.

Norton Utilities are essentially unchanged from earlier versions, bar the aforementioned Windows XP support and improved support for expunging all traces of deleted files under Windows NT and 2000. Nevertheless it remains one of the few truly 'must-have' software tools any regular PC user should keep at the ready, 'just in case'. Hopefully you'll never need it but when you do, it'll pay for itself in no time at all.--Roger Gann

5.0 out of 5 stars Norton Utilities 2002 28 Mar 2002
Having been a previous user of Norton Utilities for Windows Me, after upgrading to Windows XP I naturally upgraded to the 2002 edition. One word...... EXCELLENT! No problems, it sorts out all the jobs that Windows itself does not allow you to do properly. The bundle includes Norton Anti-Virus, once again......Excellent. It is well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeps your PC in tip top condition 15 Feb 2004
I bought this and use it a lot. Its defrag system is a lot better than Windows own as it moves frequently accessed data to the start of the hard disk for faster access rather than only placing it as one continuous file. It can repair registry entries and remove invalid shortcuts than would otherwise send your PC on a wild goose chase looking for files than no longer exist. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swiss army knife on the cover? 16 May 2009
Yeah it's a bit like a swiss army knife for a computer I suppose. I used it for a lot of years to sort out my computer issues and tweak various things. It worked well, but is now out of date. Shame! I liked it.
