  1. Just out of curiosity, is there any way to defrag a 250gb hd with norton systemworks? It cannot seem to handle large hard disks.
    I use diskeeper instead, but I was just curious.

    A good read on Norton limitations since 2003 and XP came out...

    interesting read, but it didn't mention speed disk limitations.

    For 5 years now i haven't let a Norton product within 3 blocks of any of my machines...could it be a throwback to the 137G. barrier ? ?
    Just guessing here.

    possibility. The only thing I really use on it anymore is registry repair. I wonder if there are any open source free registry repair programs that auto-fix.

    I use Erunt which backs up the registry daily automatically and behind the scenes...it also has a tool that optimises and compacts the registry...
    As to a cleaner for years and years i have used Total Uninstall. It is run before any programs are installed, records all changes made and takes a snapshot of before and after.
    When i uninstall something afterwords i just run TUN and revert back to the way things were...no wayward .dll's, no bloated reg entries.
