A few questions:

1. How does System Works perform on a win 2000 pro machine? I had problems with it on 98 but i am wondering if was a 98 problem and not a Norton problem.

We had system works for the speed optimizer and various disk utilities.

2. Is there a better alternative to the Norton Disk Tools?

3. Finally, what is the difference btw. Windows defrag/scandisk tools and nortons?

Thanks for your help.

No idea what the difference is, or if your issues will be resolved in 2K, but I've been running 2K for about 3 or 4 years now, and Scandisk & defrag do all I need. I've never wanted anything more.

I would never recommend using anything 3rd party to handle
what the OS can handle by itself. Win2k and XP handle
themselves very well, and as Axe said, therer's no need for
anyhting more.

Disk Keeper is a highly recommended defrag program. I have never used it myself but I know people that love it. I just haven't gotten around to "purchasing" it and trying it out. System Works should work in 2K. Which version will you be using? Check the Symantec website for known problems with NSW and W2k.
