Norton AntiVirus 2001
Norton AntiVirus 2001 offers consumers a comprehensive anti-virus solution that is easy to use and install. To ensure users have up-to-date protection against malicious code, Norton AntiVirus 2001 features a new and improved LiveUpdate tool, which automatically senses if any Internet connections are open, then retrieves and installs any available virus definition updates.
New to Norton AntiVirus 2001 is SmartScan technology which improves file-scanning performance and minimises background monitoring for viruses. It finds all files in the system with executable code that must be scanned for viruses - eliminating the need to scan all files in the system for unmatched protection and performance.
Norton AntiVirus 2001 also provides users a bootable CD for easy system start-up. For computers that do not support a bootable CD, Norton AntiVirus includes a tool to create emergency boot disks. Norton AntiVirus 2001 continues to scan received e-mail, detecting viruses before the user accesses the attachment. This eliminates the risk of unknowingly forwarding the virus to others.
Norton Utilities 2001
Long recognised as the established leader in the problem-solving market, Norton Utilities 2001 is the first multi-platform release of Norton Utilities and offers Windows NT and Windows 2000 users tools to optimise their systems and solve PC problems reliably and quickly.
Norton Utilities 2001 speeds PC performance, identifying and fixing a wide range of problems through an integrated set of powerful tools that include Norton SpeedDisk, Norton Optimization Wizard, Norton Disk Doctor, Norton WinDoctor, Norton System Doctor, and Norton System Check.
Norton CleanSweep 2001
Norton CleanSweep is a complete hard drive clean-up solution which restores computers to the optimal performance levels by removing unneeded files, unwanted software applications and Internet buildup such as web cookies and browser plug-ins.
Norton CleanSweep 2001 features 'Fast & Safe' from the CD, to enable users to save space by cleaning their hard drive before installing additional software.
