Norton Power Eraser Download

20 Apr/10

Norton Power Eraser is a free portable software program for the Windows operating system that has been designed to remove deeply embedded and difficult to remove malicious software from a computer system. It can specifically detect crimeware such as rogue antivirus programs that are being used to trick the user into either downloading threats to the PC or to pay money for threats that are not existing at all.

The applications use bogus alerts and security messages to scare the computer user into immediate action. Some programs that are installed that way are difficulty to detect and remove by conventional antivirus solutions.

Norton Power Eraser is currently offered as a beta version as part of Norton’s Rescue Tools collection. The program displays a simple interface on startup with options to scan a computer system or undo changes that have been made in previous sessions.

It is possible to either perform a system or directory scan. The system scan will automatically scan the most prominent locations while the directory scan only the folder that the user selects.

The results of the scan are shown afterwards with options to remove programs from the system. Norton reminds the user that the program uses aggressive scan settings which can lead to false positives as seen in the screenshot above.

PC users need to research the issue if they are not 100% sure that the displayed programs are indeed crimeware.

Norton Power Eraser is available for download at the Symantec website. It is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the Windows operating system. (via JK Web Talks)
