    I'm dumping everything in my computer that says "Norton"
    But I don't mind their utilities.
    What do you use?

    Ive been reading the amazon.co.uk site and a few of the people who bought system works say system mechanic does the same job only better and its cheaper.

    Fix it utilities is another one to try.
