Replacement for Norton?
 
We have been using Norton SystemWorks for several years. With the newer operating systems it is my understanding Norton no longer supports us Mac users. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a replacement product that does the same work as disk doctor and defrag?

Thanks

Techtool Pro should do the job. But I must say OSX has little need for such programs. I run 'onyx' every once in a while which runs the maintenance scripts. Haven't had to re-install in years and have few if no problems. Techtool pro has a nice recover program to recover lost data but the upcoming version of OSX 10.5 also has a backup and recover service and de-fragmentation is no longer needed with OSX. Anyway, here is a link to Techtools website if your still interested:
