Report misleading

Wow! The Norton Power Eraser is just what you might suspect - a powerful tool to find and destroy viruses that traditional software can't detect. I have been very pleased with it so far. The download is simple and there is an extensive tutorial page to walk you through how to install and use the program. You can also adjust even advanced settings to suite your needs of the program. I was worried at first because there is a warning that the software might try to delete safe computer programs that you actually use, but you can review the results of the scans and recommended actions before agreeing to the changes. I personally have never had a real program targeted for removal.

Features:

  • Basically free
  • Does not take up much space on your computer - doesn't affect computer start-up time
  • Completes scans fast and efficiently
  • Outsmarts tricky viruses, including those that look like legitimate downloads
  • Easy to use - automatically updates itself and makes fixes when the computer restarts
  • Not difficult to understand - green means good, red is bad, yellow is a warning
  • Clean user interface - not too many extra buttons¬†

Norton is a well known and trusted brand that has created an even more useful tool, the Norton Power Eraser, to protect your computer. The Power Eraser also works well in conjunction with my other anti-virus computer software. I feel like my computer is more secure and my web browsing has become safer. There is a large community of users so there are a lot of people to turn to if any questions or unknown situations arise. I have been able to customize this product to meet my needs and I recommend giving it a try! It really can rescue you from a potentially risky mis-click or convincing computer virus disguised as a free download. 

Roots out hard to find viruses that not every product can detect

Sounds like a good product if it actually works and can consistently keep my computer "clean." A cool aspect would be if it could show me every time that it removed or caught a virus before it could deal damage to my computer. If it is truly free then this sounds like a great product worth downloading.

Norton Power Eraser is a revolutionary tool that finds and destroys viruses that traditional software can not detect. It's comprised of a simple download install and an extensive tutorial on how to use it. So far, it's been fantastic. I have to say that it not only completes all scans quickly, but it has an easy to use interface that even my wife can understand.

This is good software it finds dificult to detect crimeware that other virus scans doesn't always detect. It removes unwanted programs and, it is easy to download. I would recommend this software to anyone that doesn't want this crimeware on their computer.
