Now here are my comments.
I have been using NSW for years to clean my system out of bad strings in the registry and to maintain windows integrity. All these features are still entrenched in this wonderful program.

The GOBack feature is now part of Windows ME as well as Windows XP. If you wanted this feature for 98, it is now possible. This feature is great if you install a new program that royally destroys your system, this GoBack feature will restore your system to prior your installation.

The package includes Norton AntiVirus as well as Clean Sweep. Both of these are great programs. You can read the review on the NAV 2003 as a separate review. Clean sweep will clear temp files and will help free up hard drive space.

Overall this is another great package from Symantec and should be in everyone's software library. I recommend this program highly.
