I've heard this, but never personally had it happen with Norton.
Specifically it seems very reliable at detecting and fixing COM
problems. But I do realise a lot of people regard it with fear and
loathing and likely have their own good reasons, so yes, backups are wise.
I have every machine here automatically archive its registry every day
via Autoexec.bat, and that has been a vital lifeline many times. However,
touch wood, Norton has never yet been the reason.
Cleansweep, however, is potentially apocalyptic if used for registry
cleaning, or orphan file removal procedures...
