Default Should I run Norton Systemworks 2004?

More than a month ago I was running Norton SystemWorks 2004 on my computer
with Win98 when my hard drive died. Granted, the drive was over four years
old and had run past its warranty period, but I've heard a couple of rumors
that this program is not good to run with ME.

Is it okay to run with ME, or should I get something else instead? I sure
don't want to go through another hard-drive crash.

Much appreciate any and all opinions on this.

Thanks!!!

No Symantec product runs well on Win Me and it is questionable whether any
product bearing the name Symantec produced in the last ten years works
properly on any operating system. Personally, and very much my own
personal opinion, if you value both your sanity and your computer have
little or nothing to do with any product sold by Symantec.

I agree, with the exception of Norton Virus Protection, which seems
not to **** off WindowsME or any of my apps.

And just last week I heard they've bought another Software Company
whose software may become the new "Ghost In The Machine".
