Unneeded files, outdated registry entries, and hard disk problems can slow your PC down to a crawl AND cause crashes and file loss. Norton Utilities is an easy-to-use toolkit that cleans up, tunes up, and speeds up your computer to help it run like new. Norton Utilities finds and fixes Microsoft Windows issues, including corrupt or outdated registry entries, to improve PC health and stability, and prevent freezes, system crashes, and slow downs. The new Norton Disk Doctor scans your hard drive and alerts you to potential hardware problems that can cause your hard drive crash. Plus, it repairs directory, file, and other disk software issues to help eliminate errors and system crashes. Missing an important file? No worries! With the new Unerase Wizard, you can search for and “rescue” files that are hidden on your hard drive but are still retrievable. Norton Utilities also helps keep your PC running at top speed. It lets you choose what services load at startup for faster startup times. And it cleans and optimizes your Windows registry for better overall PC performance. Over time, surfing the Web and adding and removing programs can cause your data to become scattered across your hard disk making it take longer for your PC to find it. The new Speed Disk™ reorganizes and groups the data on your hard disk closely together so your PC can find it faster and programs and files load quicker. Norton Utilities even protects your privacy. It erases your activity from Web browsers and other software lists to prevent others from snooping. And it permanently deletes unneeded confidential data so it can’t be stolen by cybercriminals.
