Norton Power Eraser 1.5 is Now Released!

We are excited to announce the release of Norton Power Eraser version 1.5.

With the 1.5 release we have added a new feature “Remote Scan” – This provides Norton Power Eraser access to our traditional Signature-based detection engines to increase effectiveness. . This is an advanced feature that performs a full scan on a file by sending it to the Symantec servers.

The scans that were present in v1.3 are being labeled as Local Scan. Both Local scan and Remote Scan can identify malicious files. Note that both the scans run independently and if either scan flags a file as Bad, then the file should probably be removed.

One change you would notice is that we have merged the Normal & Aggressive mode. The results would be listed in two section “Detected”  and “Suspected”.  We recommend to run a remote scan on the “Suspected” items to get more insight.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Beta program and helped make Norton Power Eraser better.
