Those people are wise. The only good thing with the name Norton on it is AntiVirus. I've seen it kill systems. Don't let it kill yours!

Symantec has announced no more support for Norton (last update was over a year ago) and with every OSX update, Norton gets worse to run. I've migrated to Tech Tool Pro 4 and use Disc Warrior to keep my directories in check.

I second that. Norton is useless! The only Norton utility I use is their firewall (on my laptop). Highly recommend Disk Warrior.

I've found that OSX really keeps itself pretty clean anyway, but have DiskWarrior on hand just in case. Remember to repair permissions every once in a while (Applications/Utilities/Disk Utilities) and I run a program called MacJanitor every once in a while ( http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/mac/10491 ). Mac Janitor performs three vital system clean up tasks that would normally be performed early in the morning automatically on a system that is run 24/7.
