    hmmm... system software are those which work directly upon the system and are not application specific. (well almost)
    so. an antivirus or ms office may be system software whreas a library management system will be an application software.
    By now, you may have got that, system software is not just one s/w.

    try WIKI for some help.

    anyway, in simple terms, i guess any software to administer a system can be called a system software. @i_kill Sorry, but I was just clearing a potential point of confusion, not picking fault.
    thanks vishal for the links. I too am now going to have a look at that.

    System Software are software you get in the "System" part of the Digit CD.
    It consists of programs to spped up your computer system, increase performance, antivirus, anti-spyware, anti-adware, junk cleaners, etc.

    You can fire one of the Digit Cd's into your CD Drive and see 4 yourself.
