Norton Systemworks 2004

I used 2002 and 2003 with no problems and have been happy with it. Today I went out a purchased 2004 and it all began with registration problems. I ended up having to manually do it over the phone to get it activated.

After installation, everything seemed fine until I tried running the program. It won't open at all. I defragged, uninstalled and re-installed numerous times, but it wouldn't run at all. I even tried running live update and keep getting error messages. I do some googling and find out that Norton Systemworks 2004 has some really bad reviews for this reason as well as support being almost non-existant.

Does anyone currently use this software and either have no problems or had something similar and know of a workaround? In any event, I hope this helps for those of you considering purchasing this - so far $80 has gotten me nothing yet...and I've spent more than 4 hours trying to get this thing to work.

I haven't tried system works because of problems I have had with norton anti-virus professional. I went with the antivirus software from grisoft and it catches things that norton missed (it has saved me more than once from viruses). Also zone alarm pro is the firewall I use. The problem I had with norton is that there were some software conflicts (or so it seems) with other stuff I had installed. I had to many problems with my computer that seemed to resolve after I uninstalled Norton. Seeing Norton came with two licenses I do run it on my other computer (that doesn't have half the programs on my main computer) - but after my subscription runs out for updates, I'm not renewing it.
