Symantec reintroduces Norton Utilities
Symantec Corp. has announced the availability of Norton Utilities, reintroducing a classic Norton product with new and essential tools to optimise PC performance.

The company says the tools in today’s Norton Utilities help reclaim system memory, accelerate startup time, free up disk space and boost overall system performance.

Norton Utilities focuses on the growing problem of slow and sluggish PCs by delivering a suite of performance-boosting enhancements. By allowing users to prioritise startup applications and Microsoft Windows services, users will experience faster startup and increased availability for the applications they need.

Norton Utilities also features a performance benchmarking application that lets users view, compare, and tweak their PC’s performance according to their needs.

“In today’s economic climate, we’re all trying to do more with what we’ve already got,” said Rowan Trollope, senior vice president, Consumer Business Unit, Symantec. “Norton Utilities provides the tools to give your PC an instant tune-up and get it running like new again. Whether it’s a new PC that you want to maintain or an older one whose performance is dragging, Norton Utilities tunes-up, tweaks and maintains your PC to ensure you get the most mileage out of it.”

Norton Utilities maintains and optimises PC performance through its suite of tools that include:

- Startup Manager and Services Manager - Manages programs configured to run at system startup
- Registry Cleaner - Cleans the registry of unnecessary entries created during the installation, de-installation and normal work on the PC
- Registry Defragmenter - Analyses the registry for errors and rebuilds it completely from scratch if needed. Defragments and corrects any structural errors
- Disk Cleaner - Scrubs the hard disk of temporary files, internet cookies, and other junk data
- Performance Test - Benchmarks a PC using a variety of different speed tests and compares the results before and after changes.

Norton Utilities includes free 24x7 email, chat and web support to all customers. Additionally, phone support is available for a fee.

The software will be available for purchase in New Zealand through retail and the Symantec online store late February. The suggested retail price for Norton Utilities is NZ$69.95.
