Norton SystemWorks Premier Edition updated version for Windows 7.

I have read a message which says systemworks has been discontinued. http://community.norton.com/norton/board/message?board.id=other&thread.id=12282  One of the user require System doctor indicators with green status lights and he is used to it since many years and only trusts Norton products and specially system doctor green lights.  As we are going to upgrade to windows 7 I was planning to get Norton antivirus 2010 and utilities 2010.Now I found that System doctor is not available in Norton Utilities 2010.  Could anyone please help and let me know how i can get system doctor features after upgrading to windows 7. Best RegardsAshraf

Re: Norton SystemWorks Premier Edition updated version for Windows 7.

Thanks for quick response. I have gone through the documentation of Norton utilities it looks fine and it has most of the features which i need . It will be great if norton system doctor is also included in Norton utilities or just a system tray icon which monitors the system and indicates if attention is required and give access to norton utilities. Best Regards Ashraf

Hi

 

The chart still says for System Works 12 Standard that plans are to be announced. I'm still hoping that means it may still be updated. It doesn't actually say discontinued on that chart or not compatible even. I saw on the Windows 7 site something that said they are still working with the manufacturer of System Works Standard also which makes it sound like it is still a possibility.

Hi Floplot,

 

I don't see a formal press release from Symantec anywhere but I am sure that NSW is gone forever. Please see here. When you click on that link it takes you to a purchase screen for NU. It is also no longer listed on the All products page here.

Hi

 

I see this link though. I know all the links on the Symantec site point to NU.

Hi Floplot,

 

I agree, that is interesting so I guess who knows for sure, eh? :smileysurprised:

 

It would seem that Symantec should know better than Microsoft about their own product but I guess the coming months will tell us for sure.
