    >>You can get Norton Systemworks for $29.00 at CompUSA too. I think its
    over-agressive resellers of Symantec software trying to make you believe that this is a
    one time special and you can't get it anywhere else....
    >>When if you walk into Office Depot, Staples, CompUSA and many others, they have
    the same special.
