Norton Power Eraser - New Version?

Has there been an update to this application within the past several days?

I was able to run it both on a Dell 8930 and Alienware 17 R5 however today it says the application is not compatible (running Windows 10 on both)

Thank you very much, the link worked!

Attached are the results for both the 8930 and the new Alienware 17 R5; are they valid or false positives?


Re: Norton Power Eraser - New Version?

Personally, I scrutinize any detection by any security product.  

Personally, I would never trust nor act based upon NPE scan (nor trust System Restore Point will be created nor trust restore point will "fix-whatever").

NPE is aggressive tool prone to false positives.  

Norton Power Eraser uses our most aggressive scanning technology to eliminate threats that traditional virus scanning doesn’t always detect, so you can get your PC back. Because Norton Power Eraser is an aggressive virus removal tool, it may mark a legitimate program for removal. However, you can always undo the results of a scan. It can also help detect and remove Potentially Unwanted Programs.
For instructions on using Norton Power Eraser, see the tutorial.


Q: why did you run NPE?
