Summary
  • Two of the best-selling utility programs are evaluated and compared: Symantec Corp's $179 Norton Desktop for Windows version 3.0, and Central Point Software's $179.95 PC Tools for Windows version 2.0. Both packages include shells that let Windows users display icons in standard group windows or in compact toolboxes, and both let icons representing programs, documents, and groups be changed. PC Tools provides a bar with system resource gauges, a calendar, and a clock; the gauges alert users to low system resources. PC Tools also lets users switch between virtual desktops, although this feature requires some resources. Norton Desktop includes a Day Planner with daily, weekly, and monthly views, a to-do list, and phone book; it also has a Desktop Editor plain-text word processor, a screen saver, and financial, scientific, and tape calculators. Norton Desktop is more robust than PC Tools and has a simpler interface and a great Control Center, while PC Tools offers better data encryption.
