I ran the Power Eraser Scan-Unwanted Application Scan and it wants to uninstall Glary Utilities Pro. Why? Isn't it compatible with Norton Internet Security?
Norton Power Eraser is aggressive and occasionally will list a safe application for possible removal. All results of NPE scans need to be researched before taking any actions, and only those programs and files that are known not to be safe should be considered for deletion.
@Shoni: I just tested the official installation package gup5setup.exe (v5.49; md5, 7afddbc414c44198a28b2ea93133b81f ) on a Windows 10 computer. It's virus-free, yet, it offers extra product named Malware Hunter when the install is complete.
Then, trust Norton; and this article will teach you how to avoid foistware the smarter way. Please slow down your mouse when installing 3rd-party programs. Take care!

Norton has given this file a good rating.

Downloaded File mhsetup.exe from glarysoft.com
Guru: I don't have Malware Hunter. I do uncheck things I do not want.

I just ran the Unwanted Apps again and it still wants to uninstall GlaryUtilities Pro, even the newest edition, 220.127.116.11 even without Malware Hunter. So why does Norton give that file a good rating?

This is why I and other Gurus do not recommend the use of Norton Power Eraser. It is a powerful tool which should only be used if recommended by an expert malware remover. Many times more than one tool has to be used to make a decision. NPE can often produce False Positives and one has to really know how to interpret the results and how much weight this tool has.
