Norton SystemWorks 2006 Basic Edition also includes Norton GoBack, Symantec’s data protection and recovery solution, which provides out-of-the-box continuous rollback. Norton GoBack keeps systems safe from damage caused by problematic installations, faulty software and potentially unwanted programs such as spyware and adware.

The built-in Norton Cleanup keeps PCs clean, allowing consumers to remove Internet clutter, their most recently used files, media file logs and temporary files, improving their system’s efficiency and protecting their privacy.

Other essential tools in Norton SystemWorks 2006 Basic Edition include Process Viewer 2.0, which identifies processes running at a specific point in time, allowing users to identify impacts to overall performance.
