The 2016 Norton Utilities Comparison

Norton Utilities’s scan on my PC running Windows 7 found 132 registry errors. Most programs I’ve tested like Norton Utilities finish scanning in about a minute on this computer and find about 200 registry errors. Your results will vary depending on your operating system and the condition of your computer.

Norton Utilities has a professional, simple to use interface. The design is easy to follow even for people who are not computer experts.

Norton Utilities’s backup and restore functions are easy to use and create a full copy of your registry so you can recover if anything goes wrong.

Norton Utilities’s scheduled scanning feature let’s you schedule a scan to run whenever you want.

Norton Utilities includes a help guide, but some pictures showing what is going on in the program would be nice.
