So I got this message on my computer that it’s time to run Norton Clean.

Oy, what a mistake.

This tool is not ready for prime time.

It’s supposed to optimize memory and clean up duplicate and residual files.

But in my experience, it swept up more good files than junk files.

And I ended up having to pull my files back from the trash and manually restore them to their file structure.

What a pain in the you know what!

Artificial intelligence — not way the I see this utility/tool.

If you don’t pay attention, you can lose a lot of important information.

Yes, it gives you a chance to review the files, but then what do you really need this cleaning tool to begin with.

Maybe you have a different experience, I can only speak for myself.

But a little human intelligence goes a long way to sift through the wheat from the chaff — that’s what your files really need anyway. ;-)
