Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

Could someone tell me what the difference is to Norton SystemWorks Basic Edition and Norton SystemWorks Standard Edition and can I Install either of them with Norton Internet Security on my system?  If not, how can I Install either of them on my system without conflicting with Norton Internet Security?

To make my system Run more smoothly - as a bonus, I would like to use it to sort out my File and stuff to make sure they are correct and everything - although that is my main reason for wanting to use it (see Bold).

It will run more smoothly if you use Ccleaner as well. What exactly do you want to use?

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

I think Stu want to know if you only want it for PC Optimization. Or do you need a special tool from System Works.

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

I have looked on the Store and looked at both Products but they look to do the exact same thing, although I think S.E. has some Added Features, but it is hard to tell because they are doing the same thing; that is why I need someone to explain it to me so I know 100-per-cent.

Stu: I have already explained in a Previous Post.

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

Norton SystemWorks Standard Edition: Diagnoses and repairs PC problems; does Norton SystemWorks Basic Edition do this as well?

And can I Install either on them on my system without conflicting with Norton Interent Security?  If not, how can I Install them without affecting N.I.S.?

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

Yes, Norton InternetSecurity and Norton SystemWorks can be installed and functioning on the same computer at the same time.

To compare features between the various versions of SystemWorks, see this link.

I hope this helps!

Won't Norton AntiVirus in N. S.W. Interfer with the Norton Internet Security AntiVirus?  Can I just Install it as it comes or do I need to do a Custom Install?

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

I apologize if this sounds overly complicated.  

It depends on which versions of the software are involved. Older versions of NIS and NSW (06 and earlier) will default to the newer version of NAV (whether that be NSW or NIS). For example: Let’s say you're trying to install NSW 05 over NIS 06.  NSW will install and not install NAV, as the newer version (NIS 06) wins. 

With newer versions, NAV is "bundled" with NSW, but they are installed separately. It is possible to install NSW and not NAV.

Newer versions (like the 08 products) will ask you first to uninstall NAV. So if you try to install NAV over NIS, it will ask you to uninstall the existing NAV.

If you're installing NSW 08 over NIS 08, NSW will function fine. BUT, if you attempt to install NAV (that was bundled with NSW 08) over NIS 08, it will simply ask you to uninstall NIS 08 if you wish to use NAV. Likewise, if you install NIS 08 over NSW 08 (w/NAV), NIS will uninstall the NAV from NSW.

This falls in line with Symantec moving to a yearly subscription based service. In doing this, we are providing you with the most recent versions of the product and up-to-date feature set.

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

The only difference between NSW Basic and NSW Standart is that the basic edition does not include NAV. Symantec recommends using NSW Basic if you also have NIS installed, as NIS includes NAV. Actually, NSW Basic is quite similar to Norton Utilities (this product was discontinued after version 2002).

Kudos0

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

The Basic Edition (B.E.) does contain Auto-Protect which means it must have N.AV because Tony advised me to do a Custom Scan and I can confirm that B.E. does have Auto-Protect.

Dave: When I am going to Install these mentioned Products, I will Install the Late-est Versions.  Is B.E. due for a New Product at the same time N.I.S. 2009 will be Released?  How will that work in relation to what you have mentioned and what one should I Install first and how should I Install B.E.? 

What you said is a bit overly-complicated and, if you could, I would be Greatful if you could explain it a bit more and make it easier to understand.

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

I'm not certain when Norton SystemWorks will be refreshed, sorry.

If I were in your shoes, I would first install Norton SystemWorks without NAV and this install Norton InternetSecurity.

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

Thanks, Dave.

Could someone from symantec tell me when B.E. is going to be Updated to the 2009 Version?

Dave: So, say B.E. is not Released at the same time N.I.S. 2009 is Released and my N.I.S. 2008 Subscription Runs Out before the B.E. 2009 is Released, what do you suggest I do in that Situation?

Dave: What do you mean: "...without NAV and this install Norton InternetSecurity."?

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

"...without NAV and this install Norton InternetSecurity." has a typo in it.

It SHOULD read "...without NAV and then install Norton InternetSecurity."

Sorry for the confusion. SpellCheck worked fine, it was my fingers that mis-typed a real word.

As long as your not installing NAV with NSW, you won't need to uninstall NIS (and vice versa). 

And I doubt anyone here will tell you when the next version of NSW will be released. That's the type of business secret we try to keep as long as we can.

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

Can I just mentioned that, when I Installed B.E. Trailware,  all Compents were just Installed with everything in it except for GoBack and there seems to be nothing wrong with N.I.S.  Operation; just wondering if I really need to do a Custom Install (I will probably do this anyway but is there any point in it if everything seems fine at the moment, although it is Trailware and that seems to be different than actually buying the Product even although I have never Bought it?).

Let me see if I have got this right: If B.E. is not Released same time as I.S., then Install I.S. and, when B.E. is Released, Install everything but A.-V. and everything else I have installed on my computer, and just Install the Core Compents...?

Maybe, if you know, you could e-mail me when B.E. is going to be Released...

Thanks again.

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

Exactly, there shouldn't be anything wrong. NSW and NIS can exist on the same computer at the same time. BUT if you had installed NAV, it would want to uninstall NIS (or NIS would want to uninstall NAV).

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

A.V. B.E. was probably Installed but is un-checked in B.E. and there seems to nothing up with N.I.S., although I am not 100% sure; I did not Check or un-Check anything to be un-insalled or installed so B.E. A.V. is probably installed on my system; the only way it was not installed would be if it Detected N.I.S. A.V. and did not install B.E. A.V., although I am not aware of this; A.V. is not Checked in B.E.; it has done this Automatically.

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

Dave,

I'm running NIS 2008 and would like to install my old Norton Utilities 2002 disk with it.  That's instead of bothering with NSW Basic until I do a simultaneous install after both 2009 editions (NIS and NSW Basic) are available, perhaps next Fall or Winter.  Before using NIS 2007 and 2008, I used to use NSW 2004, 2005 and 2006 plus fee versions of AdA and ZA.  Are those dirty words here?  My reasoning was to not keep all of my eggs in one basket.

I have no need for the latest NSW Standard or Premier features, I just want WinDoctor and ScanDisk.  A new NU would be great.

Is there any reason why I should not consider installing NU 2002?

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

I'm running Windows XP Home with Service Pack 3, 3GB of of RAM and a fast Intel dual core processor.  I don't think that the occasional use of WinDoctor or Scan Disk would be a problem, since I don't believe that Norton Utilities does anything in the background and only does its thing when you choose to run one of its features manually.

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

Symantec software is a lot more complicated than you probably think. Simply installing it in this untested environment may cause unforeseen problems. Symantec does not offer support for NU 2002 anymore, and in no way can I advise you to install it.

 

Sure, NU 2002 was built to be compatible with Windows NT/98/2K/ME/XP -- But I can't imagine how many other compatibility issues have crept in over the years, with patches to the OS and compatibility with current Symantec products (and other 3rd party products as well). Heck, it's never been tested with XP SP3 before.

 

Then again, maybe nothing will happen and it'll run perfectly. I'm just saying it's not a chance I would take on my own computer.

Re: Norton Internet Security and Norton SystemWorks

Hi Floating_Red,

Starting with Norton products 2007 the installation will guide you and tell you the exact order

in which Norton Internet Security and Norton System Works must be installed to get peak

performance on your system.

To simplify for you - always start by installing Norton Internet Security.

When there is something on your system, that will not allow this order of installation, you will get a clear message how to go on.

This way of making an installation will give you a setup minimizing conflicts.

Try it !!

I have done it the last two years. It works for me and it should work for you.

Cheers,

Kurt

It only requires one occasion when the utility meets a situation that did not exist when it was programmed for something nasty to happen. Like Dave, I'm not saying it will but is it worth your time and money in rebuilding a system to save the cost of a utility.

In any case, my life doing support over on Compuserve's WIndows Forums is full of dealing with messages saying: "I cleaned up my Windows system and got rid of all the unnecessary stuff to make it run faster and safer ...... and now it won't boot up. What shall I do?"

Hello Kurt,

       So, you say I should Install N.I.S. first and then Norton SystemWorks Basic Edition.  Okay.  But, should I do a Custom Install or just let it Install by it-self?

Like to mention this but, when my Trailware for this Expired, my In-bound Firewall and my Advanced Firewall went to "At Risk".
