Norton Power Eraser Review

Tina de Pierre
Remove many of the most common malware infections including scareware, some viruses and rootkits
A review of Norton Power Eraser by Tina de Pierre

Norton Power Eraser is a free and simple scareware and malware removal tool which focuses on removing common types of viruses.

This is definitely not an all-in-one antivirus solution and doesn't even come close to being able to remove all common viruses. With that said, it is able to scan different areas of your computer: options include scanning, history and settings.

The standard setup here will start looking for known threats and rootkits that the Norton Power Eraser recognizes. Click the "Scan for Risks" button to get started. The speed all depends on how much data exists on your hard drive(s).

In the history section of the interface, you can review previous scans and check whether or not found threats have been removed.

Overall, Norton Power Eraser is a small and somewhat effective program which can detect and remove some common malware found on the web but doesn't replace any full antivirus solution.

Norton Power Eraser is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from antivirus without restrictions. Norton Power Eraser is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
