By Ionut Ilascu 12/10/07 1-Click Maintenance is just a glimpse of what Glary Utilities can do for your computer and contains a selection of six of the most important cleaning tools available. As the name suggests, with a single click you can start the selective cleaning process.

Duplicate File Finder is a new feature in Norton Utilities, and allows users to free up computer space by locating all the duplicate files scattered across the hard drive and automatically remove them. Application uninstaller is another great feature of Norton Utilities, and when triggered removes programs that aren’t used or ones that take up too many system resources. It features a clean, easy-to-navigate interface that’s divided into five areas – Dashboard, Performance, Privacy, Recovery and Settings. The Dashboard section displays the startup time for third-party software, free hard drive space, system health and a large one-click optimization icon. One drawback is that the system must be restarted after cleaning which can be a pain.

However, it does not include some advanced features that can be found in some of its rivals. For example, it lacks file shredder, SSD optimizer and privacy optimization features.
