Default will Norton's systemworks 2k3 slow down my PC?

sponsored links
seems that after i installed this program and ran the windows fix sub-program, it now boots up real slow after the welcome screen. and when i want to play a game (i.e. FarCry) it loads up very slowly. my computer is brand new and it has the muscle to handle anything, but just lately it is slow to boot up and load a program, even when i turn on internet explorer.

Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 1 (build 2600)
Processor a Main Circuit Board b
2633 megahertz Intel Pentium 4 (2 installed)
8 kilobyte primary memory cache
512 kilobyte secondary memory cache Board: Dell Computer Corp. 0M2035

WDC WD1200JB-75CRA0 [Hard drive] (120.00 GB) -- drive 0

so that's what i have, any solutions? i appreciate it.

Take off system works and see if your PC speeds up if not: Defrag, virus scan and run adaware and spybot search and destroy.
