Version 4.5 was probably the most popular. It was released in 1989, and contained all classic utilities associated with the package. The cost was 149.95. See 49 slides created by Greg Shultz for Techrepublic at Dinosaur Sighting The Norton Utilities - Advanced Edition - Version 4.5.
Release 5.0 included more features, including a utility to perform low level formatting on hard disks, and changes such as password protection on the more \"dangerous\" utilities. It also included a licensed version of the 4DOS replacement for COMMAND.COM called NDOS. This version also allowed the choice of \"classic\" names (such as FF.EXE) or longer names (such as FINDFAST.EXE); these were configurable in the updated version of the Norton Integrator menu system.
The integrated nature of NSW is particularly appealing, and it comes with a 300-plus-page paper or electronic manual.There are also stand-alone versions of Norton AntiVirus and AntiSpam. Recently, Symantec acquired PowerQuest of PartitionMagic and Drive Image fame. It will be interesting to see what happens with Drive Image vs. Norton Ghost, as they are similar products. Earlier acquisitions by Symantec such as Norton, Central Point Software (PC Tools) and QuarterDeck have seen some product integration, such as CleanSweep into Norton SystemWorks.System Mechanic 4 (iolo technologies) iolo technologies recently released a new version of its integrated system utility, System Mechanic 4. It includes Internet-related tools such as protection against spyware and malware, a clutter cleaner, network speed booster, pop-up ad and browser history eliminator as well as tools designed for one's computer system.System tools include a disk and memory defragger, Windows start-up manager, a tool to clean up error-producing and duplicate files and drivers, and a system maintenance scheduler. It also includes utilities to customize hidden Windows settings, find and fix broken Windows shortcuts, search and remove invalid uninstallers, and securely delete sensitive files, documents, etc.System Mechanic 4 offers Panda3 Anti-Virus protection from viruses, worms and Trojans as well as providing integrated e-mail protection and a secure Internet firewall. The Search and Recover feature helps recover deleted files and folders, deleted or lost e-mail, and deleted photos and music. Also, it can help those using hard drives, CDs and DVDs to store back-ups; automatic/unattended data protection can be scheduled.A couple of other potentially useful features are found in System Mechanic 4: System Shield Pro is designed to remove sensitive information, while DriveScrubber Pro can wipe data from any hard or floppy drives if necessary after a virus attack or system corruption, or before donating, selling or giving away drives.SystemSuite 5 (V Communications)There are a number of new/enhanced features in VCOM's SystemSuite 5, including VirusScanner Pro from Trend Micro (updated engine) to keep systems from being infected by viruses, etc., while NetDefense personal firewall from Sygate (another good name) protects systems from hackers/intruders. PCDiagnostics now covers USB, Firewire, DVD drives and network cards with improved analysis under WinXP.I've found RegistryFixer to be good and it now has a \"Protect Keys\" option that allow users to flag special issues to be ignored on future uses of RegistryFixer.The Rescue CD, a part of the Installation CD (or make your own, if you've downloaded SystemSuite), is a self-booting utility that can help solve system problems, while a 52-page PDF Emergency Response Manual is improved and updated for WinXP. The Recovery Commander can be used to restore critical components back to a known working time, and data can be transferred to a CD-R or USB drive without depending on Windows.Two other new features from third-party vendors are intriguing: GhostSurf4 provides anonymous Web surfing, while MailWasher Anti-Spam offers an antispam system to automatically remove and bounce junk mail back to the sender.SystemSuite 5 sports some other changes:* MediaVerifier and MediaScan for virus scans expand FloppyVerifier and FloppyScan to include other removable media.* SMARTDefender now is called SMARTCheck and offers the same functionality.* Crashproof has been removed, since Win95 no longer is supported.* PowerDesk Pro 4, which was not WinXP-compatible, has been replaced with one of my favorite file managers, PowerDesk 5.PentaSuite 7 (PentaWare) A recent discovery, PentaSuite, offers some of the same functionality as the other suites plus some new and different features that may make your computer life easier.At the heart of PentaWare is the nicely designed PentaWare Manager which gives access to the various programs in the suite as well as access to Advanced Options, the Help Files, and to the PentaWare Web site. While users can use the programs without the Manager, it does provide a convenient way for users to: manage compressed (zipped) files/archives, view and edit files, encrypted (protect) files, copy files to a CD or DVD, create photo albums in HTML or PDF format, convert files from one format to another, and e-mail files. A new product under the Tools section of the Manager is called PentaRename for bulk renaming of files.PentaZip 7 is, apparently, the core product on which PentaSuite is built and can be purchased separately. Version 5.1 received an Editor's Choice award from ZDNet -zdnet.com.com/PentaZip_5_1/4505-3513_16-9973536.htmltag=pdtl-list It can be used to manage compressed files/archives by creating new ones, modifying existing ones, extracting files or just viewing them; and, although the program refers to the most common form of compressing or \"zipping\" files, it can handle many other forms including ARC, ARJ, LHA, LZH, RAR, and Zoo which some readers may recall from the days of DOS computing. PentaZip also offers ZGB (ZipGigaByte) and ZIP64 compression which allows users to create/extract archives larger than 4GB as well as compressing single files that are larger than 2GB.PentaZip includes a Shell (menu options) when a user \"right button mouse clicks\" on a file while PentaSFX is used to create self-extracting files. Such files can be useful or problematic if they are e-mailed to a colleague: useful if the recipient doesn't have a program to uncompress the file, while problematic if the recipient's Internet Service Provider (ISP) deletes all files with an *.exe extension assuming they are viruses. Other PentaZip features include Scripts and a Scheduler which provides unattended running of scripts, batch files, and other programs including recurring events.PentaPGP is the interface for PGP encryption with other settings (AES, Blowfish, Serpent, TDES, DES, Mars with Hash - Sha and Haval and 160 512 bit encryption) found in the Advanced Options section. The PentaSend Wizard helps users encrypt files using PGP, upload, e-mail or save to a hard drive, CD, or DVD. Users can also use the simple encryption/decryption found in PentaZip.PentaBrowser works something like Windows Explorer and my longtime favorite file manager, PowerDesk. PentaBrowser has a number of associated tools including PentaView, PentaConverter, PentaCollector, PentaHTML, and Copy Files to a CD or DVD. Here is a brief description of these tools:* PentaView - can reportedly show/examine files in more than 120 different formats.* PentaConverter - converts files from one format to another.* PentaCollector - select files for a CD/DVD, compressing, e-mail, and so on.* PentaHTML - create photo albums for web posting, CD burning or e-mailing, plus a number of new features have just been added including a preview of the Photo Album inside the Program, better management of templates, and editing by using installed HTML editors.* PentaFTP - upload/download files from sites using File Transfer Protocol; and* PentaDVD - make CD/DVDs (including from the command line with strong encryption) which is useful for batch-file backing-up data.Law firms should find PentaDVD useful for backups, data salvaging, digital photography storage and viewing in court as well as other presentations. Multi-volume compressed archives can be stored on a CD, DVD or the hard drive, and large files can be split across multiple CD/DVDs. \"It supports all major optical media formats currently available (CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW) and works with all recent standard models of CD and DVD burners. It even supports numerous anti-buffer under-run/overrun methods including 'burn proof'.\"Final ThoughtsWhen you look at Norton SystemWorks and Norton Internet Security, you will notice some duplication in that Norton AntiVirus is found in both products. My choice, assuming that only one is possible, would be Norton Internet Security, given that the components in Norton Utilities haven't changed (much) in the last couple of versions, so you already may have something useful on your system. Ideally, one is using either Windows 2000 or Windows XP, given their considerable stability.While Internet security is now more of an issue from Net-borne viruses as well as hacker attacks thus my leaning toward Norton Internet Security over Norton SystemWorks today, one can have system utilities, antivirus protection and an Internet firewall in a single suite such as System Mechanic 4 or SystemSuite 5.So here's the dilemma: Both SM4 and SS5 seem quite good and equal in most ways, although one may, at first glance, seem to have a few more functions mentioned in its main menu . . . which could be more of a function of how things are organized. Now, if Norton combined SystemWorks with Norton Internet Security, then it really would be a coin toss. User satisfaction, in my view, probably would be high with any choice. However, if you need a set of utilities designed for very specific functions, then have a look at PentaSuite. These are not general service utilities such as those which are primarily designed for trouble-free computing; rather, these nicely
