Default Norton Utilites replacement?

I've been using NU since before DOS 5.0, however with a new format and such I was thinking maybe a different set of utilites would be better.

I really only use the Disk Doctor, Win Doctor, and Speed Disk anymore. Any suggestions on replacements for them?

Thx

I use CCleaner and PerfectDisk for defrag. CCleaner is great for a free app, works better than Win Doctor used to IMO.

Hmmm I used Win Doctor to sorted out the registry mess all the times, I will try CCleaner now.

I tried it 15 mins ago, it is brilliant program, Cleaner detected and cleaned out 474MB of waste data on my laptop. Will use CCleaner on both of my UMPC and desktop PC later today.

I'll give them a look.

No one has any other suggestions?? Or is everyone else just silently agreeing without weighing in?

Well most people here like CCleaner that's how I found out about it and PerfectDisk seems to be the best defrag program by far after testing the main ones everyone knows about.

This is all I use and have never had any trouble. And Diskeeper is the only one that costs.
