This is a useful suite if you plan to use GoBack and Checkit, or keep your hard drive free of cluttered data.

Norton SystemWorks 2005 detailed review

Works As Usual

SystemWorks 2005, the latest release of the PC maintenance suite from Norton, has Worm Protection and a search bar for Norton GoBack v4.0.

The AntiVirus warned us as we accessed a file infected with W32.Sasser.Worm, but it could not clean it. Out of the box, it lacks the latest signatures of viruses, etc. The virus database in our case was almost three months old.

GoBack v4.0 did retrieve files and folders permanently deleted from a drive. We also tried ‘Wipe Info’ to delete a Word document, but GoBack retrieved the deleted file. You cannot format a GoBack-protected drive. This is good security, but you cannot opt out of this feature; you can do that only once during installation.

SystemWorks also includes Checkit Diagnostics, which has hardware tests for memory, graphics card, etc. These are mediocre and only provide functionality information. The new System Optimizer utility lets you tweak Windows XP settings.

This is a useful suite if you plan to use GoBack and Checkit, or keep your hard drive free of cluttered data. Updating from an earlier version is however, not ecommended.
