"Does a good job"

September 10, 2010  |  By dumbanddumber

 |  Version: Norton Power Eraser 1.5.0.42

Pros

It will often times remove stubborn malware, at least when other programs, like Malwarebytes, might be blocked by the malware.

Cons

It requires a connection to the internet while it scans, but that isn't a big deal.

Summary

Give it a try. It doesn't actually install to your computer, as it is simply run from the .exe file that you download. Whenever you are done using it, simply delete the NPE.exe file.

I remove malware from student computers all the time, as I work at the university I currently attend. Power Eraser is just another tool for the toolbox. You may or may not have luck with it removing what you need it to remove, but it is worth a try.

Pros

Installs easily enough.Fast scans.

Cons

Won't scan unless you're connected to the internet (just like a cloud anti-virus or anti-malware).

Summary

I didn't like the fact that I had to be connected to the internet just to scan my PC.
