Odd Norton Power Eraser behaviour:
I've been trying to run Norton Power Eraser having downloaded the latest version however each time it goes through the scan and then displays the following message with a continue, cancel and exit button selection.
" Norton Power Eraser has successfully restored internet connection. Hosts file and NPE proxy settings may have been modified."
This occurs both when including rootkit scan and excluding. The internet connection is on at all times, and hitting continue at this message makes NPE go through the whole cycle of checking for updates, scanning and then displays the exact same message again, with no results of a scan at all.
My OS is Vista 64 and I'm using NIS 2011 if that is at all relevant. NPE version number is displayed as 188.8.131.52.
I would appreciate any assistance you can provide or any hints as to what that message actually means.
