Norton AntiVirus 2004, with 90 days of virus definition updates, is a comprehensive antivirus product for Microsoft(TM) Windows(TM) operating systems that can simply and reliably detect and remove viruses from your computer.

PC-Doctor diagnoses common problems on major system components. Diagnostic tests are run either locally or remotely through the Internet or an intranet.

Remote Deployment Manager (RDM) (downloadable)
RDM is a server-based application that simplifies the setup, configuration, rollout, and ongoing lower-level management of networked ThinkCentre desktop computers. Because RDM gains control of a PC before it boots its local operating system, many of the lower-level tasks that previously required a visit to each computer can now be performed over the network.

RDM requires an IBM server (sold separately).
