1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy this product.

Pros: None

Cons: Symantec will not support this product if you don't buy it from symantec.com. I have the chat with their tech support to prove it. Over all Symantec has horrible product support and these products have numerous bugs and are lacking support. Version 15 of Norton ghost doesn't even support windows 8 and they wont ever make it work. That was the last version of ghost before they went to utilities. Almost everything this can do is now built into microsoft operating systems. Don't buy it.

Other Thoughts: Acronis is a decent imaging software.

3 out of 5 eggsI gambled and lost on this one!

Pros: $10 on sale. Cleaned a few files more. Looks nice. Trusted brand

Cons: I build cpus and use all kinds of software on a regular basis. That said I take precautions with everything just out of habit and unlike other programs where I've done system restores, when I used this both before and after registry cleaning I was unable to simply restore at the previous point to install of this product. I had to go further back than I wanted to and it was quite frustrating. In addition, it slowed down my startup by .5 to 1 second and when you are used to 6.2 to 6.8sec startups that's significant. With all the tech savvy that I have I still found this program frustrating enough with what it does to your cpu vs how your cpu benefits that I simply uninstalled and wiped it off my desktop. My laptop is more of a cookie cutter retail product but my desktop is my baby so I left it installed in my laptop but my custom desktop pc is back to ripping up fast upon boot without this norton product. I actually like their antivirus software so I'm not an upset Norton hater. I just don't like anything that slows down my i7 3770k. My pc is finely tuned and I love it. I was just looking for a good utility to try and clean up some things my freeware utilities found and figured $10 was worth the gamble but I still lost! ha! My pc was running fine (if not better) before the installation of Norton utilities. For me it simply was not worth it.

Other Thoughts: I actually still think this is a decent product for very specific needs though but it just doesn't help someone as tech savvy as I am. I'm not quite getting paid professionally but I'm that guy that people go to and I'm thinking about it. For someone who uses a laptop or a dell or something more retail and less custom and you don't spend a lot of time researching how to do things yourself this could actually probably benefit you greatly and clean your cookie cutter pc pretty well and show good benefit but for someone like me I should have known better. I guess I'm at a point where I should just trust my knowledge level and not believe that I need to rely on such products. I'm just weening off of this I guess. Don't runaway from this product because of negative reviews, if someone recommends it and it meets your specific needs it will probably do well by you but nonetheless, just be careful and have access to someone who really knows what they are doing as they may have to help you "undo" some of the work that this utility aims to complete for you. That's the worst case scenario. If you are desperate to fix your pc be wary as this could do more damage than good. I guess I let my desire to have my pc 100% clean override the logic and purchased a product I really didn't need. Take this review for what it's worth. It doesn't necessarily negate any positive reviews that may come down the line. For me this product is mediocre at best but I wouldn't quite say it's bad and it does have the potential to be great under certain needs. Just be careful with it!

3 out of 5 eggsNorton Utilities Review

Pros: 1. On sale for 10 bucks with free shipping

2. Lifetime product key for this version with free updates only if Microsoft releases a new service pack

3. 24/7 support for product

4. Acceptable to above acceptable scan speeds and fixes

5. Cleans and fixes basic things that you can do with windows with just one click-(This is only a pro if you don't know how to do it)

6. Basic registry cleaner

Cons: 1. Does not scan for possible security issues or fix any security issues-This should be included in paid utilities programs in my opinion

2. No free update to newer version

3. Could do a more depth job on making your PC run faster-Just does basic things that you can already do in windows for free

4. The control panel is not very clear

5. It will not show your PC as good health unless you follow all of the required steps

6. Pretty large program-Could be smaller program-Its not really worth the size it takes up

Other Thoughts: Not even worth the 10 bucks: There are programs that do the basic cleaning just like this program but are free such as ccleaner- I don't recommend buying this product
