  • Systemworks

     

  • Antispyware
  • Antivirus
  • Internet worm protection
  • System performance optimization
  • System restore
  • File recovery

     

     

    Onecare

     

  • Protection Plus: Anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-phishing & firewall
  • Performance Plus: automated tune-ups for faster computing
  • Backup and restore: scheduled backups for peace of mind

     

    The big advantage onecare has over any symantec antivirus (etc) package is that its less resource intensive - with symantec I've found that my machine does slow down, and when you are doing a virus scan it virtually stops (and I've got 2gb ram with a pentium 4, 2.93ghz, processor.
