Utilities program

by BridgetW / February 10, 2008 2:16 AM PST

I have always used Norton System Works...until now. I just got a new Dell Inspiron 531 and with it I bought Norton Internet Security (Dell didn't have any other Norton choices; I prefer Norton). What I'm wanting is to have utilities like System Works has, such as disk clean-up and registry sweeper. I see Norton has something called "360", but since I'm protected for more than a year with my internet security updates I hate to buy something new. My o/s is Vista and I don't have a clue how to use (or even find) "clean-up" types of utilities. Any help would be appreciated!

i have the 2007 version running and it works a dream. quick, doesn't take up to much space. has a wide range of tasks(including the ones you want). its says a 30-day trail but you can still use it after the trail(well the 2007 version does, only you have to wait say 200secs before it allows you to). but is works and its fully functional for the first 30 days so try it out.


let me know if you like it. and any probs

Get your hands on Jv16 Powertools (macecraft.com) to straighten things out. It won't cost you an arm or a leg.
