The Norton team has just released the new Norton Power Eraser beta, NPE 188.8.131.52
I hope many of you have a chance to try it and let us know what you think..
We look forward to reading your feedback and great ideas.
Key changes in this release:
• Improved Network Resiliency
We have added additional logic to resolve network problems that prevent NPE from running
• Undo to a separate partition
If you remove a file that makes the system unbootable, (certain rootkits that hook the OS for example) you can boot from NBRT or another Windows partition and undo the changes to the other OS
Note: Current NBRT does not use NPE 2.5 beta.
• Main UI and setting layout changes
Main UI layout has been updated with the three principal actions available as clickable button (Scan, History, Settings)
Similarly, the settings page layout has been refreshed and updated.
• Setting option to only show bad files
Suspicious files that would normally be shown in the scan results can be suppressed. Users that have a high number of suspicious files that are safe may wish to enable this setting.
You can download the Norton Power Eraser Beta here:

well it works like a charm for me and thank you for bringing the extra buttons ! This is how it should look like, without risks :)
and there's a great list of information in the Log itself, this shows me exactly what I need :D
Keep up the good work and thanks again,

It's always good to see that this project is not abandoned by Symantec and it's updating frequently when the threat landscape is going to change.
Whether you have included advanced rootkit detection techniques(especially against Backdoor.Tidserv.M and Trojan.Zeroaccess)into the last beta build, or the only way to detect and / or clean these rootkits is the NPE scan on NBRT environment?
