Can I install both Norton 360 v5.0 and Systemworks Premier v12 on a computer running Windows Vista. I see several old posts on the compatibility of N360 and Systemworks, but now we have newer versions of N360, will it work? Contrary to some comments there ARE features on Systemworks that are not in N360. I currently have Systemworks installed; have bought N360.

Norton 360 latest version have almost all the features of Norton SystemWorks, prehaps in a more advanced manner. Only features which you may seem missing will be the WinDoctor and DiskDoctor from Norton SystemWorks.
Norton 360 can co-exist with Norton SystemWorks. If you still need Norton SystemWorks along with Norton 360, you may need to uninstall Norton AntiVirus part from Norton Systemworks before installing Norton 360. Go to Control Panel > Programs & Features, select Norton SystemWorks and click Change > Modify, uncheck Norton AntiVirus and click Next. This will uninstall only Norton AntiVirus component of Norton SystemWorks, this custom uninstallation is available only in Norton SystemWorks and NOT in Norton 360. Then install Norton 360, you won't have any problem and can use the other components like Utilities, Goback from Norton SystemWorks .
The only problem that you may notice is that Norton SystemWorks report that No AntiVirus component installed in your computer. This is because the Norton SystemWorks won't be able to detect, recognize and integrate with the latest versions of Norton 360 or Norton Internet Security as it is an old product(discontinued). You can simply ignore this as you can find the status of Norton AntiVirus separately from the Norton 360 main window. Let us know how it goes.

Thanks. I'll try it soon. Am I correct that Systemworks has Wipe Disk and Norton 360 does not? That's the feature I had in mind as not being available in N360.
