Norton Power Eraser 5.0.0

Norton Power Eraser is a standalone poratable tool that claims to find and eliminate malware items that are difficult to remove or often overlooked by other spyware scanners. The program uses aggressive methods and is intended as a last resort, after you have exhausted other options. Because Norton Power Eraser uses rather aggressive methods to detect potential threats, there is a high risk that it can select some legitimate programs for removal. You should use this tool very carefully. The interface of the application is simple and to the point.

Its purpose is to scan your computer and eliminate aggressive threats that are usually tough to remove by traditional security software. You can think of it as an extra tool that strives to improve the malware cleanup results, regardless of the security suite you run on the system.

Norton Power Eraser is absolutely free of charge and does not require installation – simply double-click the executable to deploy it.

The application is not a scanner per se, because it relies on Symantec’s file reputation service, Norton Insight. This means that having an Internet connection is a mandatory requirement for the program to carry out its job.

A computer restart is mandatory for carrying out the scan activity because Norton Power Eraser also checks for rootkits by default. 

When the system is back online, you can see the files currently verified. On the downside, there is no indication about the completion time for the task, or a bar to hint at the progress.

After the scan, all items deemed as a threat as well as the suspicious ones are presented. For the first ones there is only one action available: remove. 

Given the aggressive nature of the program, it may flag perfectly legitimate files as malicious, so a double check from your part makes for a great idea.

Norton Power Eraser is fast, which is to be expected from a scanner that relies on file reputation, and the results can be impressive; in our case, it managed to spot and eliminate about 450 threats out of a total of about 1000 we had for testing purposes.
