    "Do not play with windows registry!"

    July 27, 2012  |   By raju_thorat

    Version: Norton Utilities 1.0

    Pros

    None. There are few but Cons are dangerous.

    Cons

    My PC was in working condition. I was using Ccleaner since last 1 year. I thing Norton Utilities will make my PC better. But when I run registry defrag module and restarted PC I saw Blue Screen Error. It was impossible to start PC even in safe mode. When I used Windows 7 DVD to recover ,the System Restore was not working. Finally I formatted Windows Partition and restored PC using System Image Backup.

    Summary

    Do not play with windows registry.

    "Didn't improve operation of my computer"

    March 4, 2012  |   By lsmitty5

    Version: Norton Utilities 1.0

    Pros

    Easy to use

    Cons

    It keeps telling me that the computer needs fixing even after it has run and claimed that almost all problems were fixed. No discernible improvement in start-up time.

    Summary

    Doesn't seem to do anything worth-while as shown in improved computer operation (Windows Vista 64 bit)

    "Same as pc tools performance toolkit."

    November 16, 2010  |   By stewiebee123

    Version: Norton Utilities 1.0

    Pros

    None tune up utilities 2011 far better.

    Cons

    Unfair to sell identical products rebadged to customers.

    Summary

    The fact that pc tools sells performance toolkit without making it clear that it is norton utilities with a different interface but exact same internals is misleading.I myself purchased norton utilities 2010 this week only to find that my installed pc tools performance toolkit already installed on my computer was the same product.I am sure that i would find the registry cleaner was the same as registry mechanic uses.It seems a ploy to sell identical products rebadged to customers.

    August 23, 2010  |   By colinh25

    Version: Norton Utilities 1.0

    Pros

    Makes my computer run good, iv tried tons of utility programs out there but i always keep coming back to Norton!!!!!!!

    Cons

    No built in defrag, just a link to the OS default one..

    Summary

    i would recommend this to everyone, it's pretty damn good :D, after 2 weeks of surfing the net, doing big projects, uninstalling/installing stuff (using the disk cleaner & registry cleaner) my computer runs smother and the internet seems to run better too :D, such a good program :)

    "Gone are the Glory days of a once major program, Shame"

    July 17, 2010  |   By parker12350

    Version: Norton Utilities 1.0

    Pros

    It has a great Rrgistry program clean and organize it.

    Cons

    Wher is my noton disk doctor? Where is the major tools that made Nortons Utilities great. They are not in this program. $49.00, noway. Maybe $10.00.

    Summary

    Did I purchase the wrong Norton's Program. Where is the Norton's Disk Doctor, The Win Doctor, and all the Norton?s tools that kept my windows running right. I started using Norton's Utilities when it was just DOS 3.3 all the way to XP. I learned to count on Norton?s. If any people knew about hard drives, file structure, MBR, etc, it was Norton. But today, I don't know if they sold the store to Bill, or they are still trying to unravel Windows Vista and Windows 7. Or did Peter Norton pass away without me knowing it, Lord I hope not. Please help someone at Norton?s, pick up the torch. Return to the days of old. Give us the good stuff back that works with Windows 7.

    "A great cleaning utility"

    December 29, 2009  |   By mttxn12

    Version: Norton Utilities 1.0

    Pros

    It cleans PCs better than other utilities. It can find things deep within the system and registry. It's reliable.

    Cons

    No major complaints. It does link to some Windows based utilities but I'm okay with that. I would rather defrag with the built-in Windows defragger than some 3rd party tool.

    Summary

    A good cleaning utility to have on your computer. Complements Norton's Internet Security Suite well.

    "Too Bad: 2009 Product is weak and worse than ever :-("

    December 1, 2009  |   By Rollingout

    Version: Norton Utilities 1.0

    Pros

    Had the promise of an improved product, compatible with Win 7 .... BUT....
    they failed. Good thing there is a 60 day return policy. I sent mine back.

    Cons

    Weak system maintenance suite. Some of the apps on the programs home page, are only a reuse or pointer to exactly what's already in Win7. (Disk Defrag is a good example). Hey Symantec: Where's the real value or value add??? Plus it's till buggy

    Summary

    This is a rip-off... little value to the user and the poor tech support only compounds the problems. Too bad. Symantec used to be a good company with some great products.
    Hope they see the errors in their ways, sometime soon and fix some of this.

    "Great registry cleaner"

    August 25, 2009  |   By Shadow Watcher

    Version: Norton Utilities 1.0

    Pros

    Very good for cleaning the registry and cleaning computer use tracks.

    Cons

    Many of the functions, such as disk defrag, just link to the Windows function. It is nothing more then a menu for finding the associated windows function. That's nice if you don't know how to find them yourself though.

    Summary

    This is a great program for cleaning the registry and computer use tracks! It is well worth the download. The program has a 30 day trail period so try it out for yourself.
