I have to say that the Norton utilities suck. They do because they eat all your system reasources and then leave you with a either really slow computer or an unstable OS (when used in XP Pro on Dell computers). They continue to do so until they are uninstalled. What I recommend is that you DO NOT buy any Norton items.

You can shut down services like speed disk , ghost, and process viewer to manual or did ya know that as well. I as well can testify norton doesn't wreck systems , its usually the administrator..

I know you can shut down those apps, but then what's the point of having the suite? All in all, I think Symentec could use some more time on making there code more effiecient.

I think from his shadow in his pic, he's a kid. Also yes, it's a big file but that doesn't mean it has to be so sloppily programmed, Microsoft and Apple's shown us that.

one and all, i have used norton utilities from v2 for dos all the way to system works 2003 and have not found a better utilities suite out there. one problem you might be having is if you are using norton anti-virus. it is a resource hog and it does interfere with a lot of programs. on the other hand, all i usually install is the norton utilities suite-i use ez anti-virus(cheap and very good and non-intrusive). i primarily use disk doctor, win doctor and speed disk. this time i did install ghost because i was tired of reinstalling everything after a crash or when a hdd dies. i even had ndd recover a hdd that had terminally crashed and used that drive for another two years until the motor burned out.
