"Excellent - only program able to remove stubborn trojan"

April 23, 2012  |  By jaa1755

 |  Version: Norton Power Eraser 2.5.0.42

Pros

- Finds and successfully removes problems that other programs cannot
- Scan is relatively quick
- Free

Cons

- None, worked exactly as described

Summary

Although some have reported serious issues after running this software, it worked perfectly for me. A client's computer was infected with several stubborn scareware trojans, and I tried all the major 'go to' spyware removal solutions before running this. It found and permanently removed ALL the problems.

"Caused Major Drive To Crash"

March 27, 2012  |  By hiyoureawesome101

 |  Version: Norton Power Eraser 2.5.0.42

Pros

Removed the viruses.

Cons

Caused my hard drive to crash and didn't allow my computer to start up.

Summary

I had the "bootmgr is missing" and tried everything. In the end I had to factory reset my entire computer to get rid of the problem. It's nice that it removes the viruses, but it's not worth it. Just stick with the normal Norton Antivirus and you'll be fine.

"The last resort, in VIRUS Utilities."

February 28, 2012  |  By vegher7

 |  Version: Norton Power Eraser 2.5.0.42

Pros

Norton Power Eraser 2.5.0.42 is easy to use, the scan takes less than three minutes.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

This is a powerful Utility and not ment for the Novice or Used Casually; you must know what you want to delete, create a restore before using this product.

This product does a much deeper scan, than others and can flag good files as bad, use caution. I recommend this product.

"Removed what nothing else could"

February 18, 2012  |  By anymous626

 |  Version: Norton Power Eraser 2.5.0.42

Pros

Free, Removed the stdrt.exe rootkit that was on my PC, a very nasty worm that ran as a background service and was neither removed by kaspersky, malwarebytes, ect. although kaspersky would stop it from accessing the internet, it wouldn't remove the program that was respawning the stdrt.exe files upon reboot, so if you got this one then give this a shot. It may also catch legit programs so make sure you check so you don't remove anything important.

Cons

none it does exactly what it was intended to do.

Summary

Excellent program, I thank you developers for it, especially because it is free.
