YOu can use the default winxp programs i.e. defragmenter. But when using norton be sure that you use win xp compatibility software.

I like Diskeeper 7.0 for XP. You set it and forget it. My system performance has improved a lot and maintenance free

I have both. The Norton Speed disk (2002) is much faster than the default defragmenter that comes with windows XP.

Other than that, they both work about the same...

I like the Norton System Works 2002 monitor\alarms that you can set to show alarms at various settings that you can adjust, like 92% fragmentation. WinDoctor will tell you of dead short cuts, registry problems, etc. I prefer knowing what problems were found and how they are fixed, while scandisk just tells you problems were found and fixed...

Also, Norton System Works 2002 pro comes with Ghost which is a great back up tool for your hard drive. You need version 2002 to work w\ XP.
