Norton Power Eraser Beta
Tried it on a Windows 7 HP 64bit system, not too impressed.
It was a clients PC, and infected.
Although this software is not for primary malware removal, I did try it to see what it would do, I removed the hard drive and connected it via a usb adapter to my XP laptop, it scanned and found 6 files infected, but could not remove them, I ran my corporate edition AVG and if found 13, removed them. Put the drive back in the PC and tried the Norton tool again, if found some issues and asked to reboot to remove them, I rebooted, Norton started before the desktop loaded and got a library error and did not remove the files. I finished cleanup using MBAM.
The Norton program will not run unless there is an Internet connection, which I think is a mistake, since many malwares will disable this.
It is Beta, and needs work
