    "Norton Power Eraser is a free download that's effective"

    May 31, 2011  |   By bobengel

    Version: Norton Power Eraser 1.7.0.3

    Pros

    NPE is not installed in the computer; it's simply an executable file that scans the computer for "crimeware" that anti-virus software may miss. These files can be deeply embedded and difficult to remove such as root-kits. NPE performs very fast.

    Cons

    I did not find any negative aspects of the program but I was unable to determine how the program responds and reports when a dangerous file is found because none were ever encountered on my computer.

    Summary

    I would recommend Norton Power Eraser as a complement to anti-virus programs because of its ability to detect and eliminate dangerous files, especially root-kits. As a free offering by Symantec, it is not installed in the computer but it's initiated by opening an executable file. The program's data base is frequently updated.

    On a badly infected computer, NPE will remove malware that prevents installation of some anti-virus programs and suites.

    "Doesn't work!"

    April 29, 2011  |   By mail@eckes.tv

    Version: Norton Power Eraser 1.7.0.3

    Pros

    Can't find any.

    Cons

    When I run Power Eraser, it starts its scan, but quits & gives me error codes. To get support from Symantec, I'd have to pay $99...Even though I've paid for Norton Internet Security, which doesn't find the trojan horse that's infected my computer.

    Summary

    This may be a great utility, but I'll never know! I downloaded it because Norton Internet Security can't find & remove the trojan horse that's re-directing my browser to pages I don't want to see. All I know for sure is that Power Eraser won't work on my Windows 7 Pro system. And I don't want to spend $99 on technical support that I shouldn't have to pay for! Next security suite I buy will NOT be from Symantec!
