If I tell you that today we will be reviewing a tool which has been developed by Norton then I can expect that you will definitely give a glance to this post. Well I am not misleading you as today we will surely be reviewing a product developed by Norton and it is named as Norton Power Eraser but before starting the review let me tell you something that this tool speaks of its better security service than any other tool.
First of all, getting a Norton product as a freeware is something which is not usual. So, you should give a try to it. Now this tool will scan quickly though your system and then it will create a list in which all the files which are marked as suspicious will be enlisted. Now, you can take care of them and fix them.
Whenever you will launch this tool, you will see an UAC window and after allowing it you will have to accept the agreement whenever you launch this tool. This tool will not get installed or i should say that this tool is portable and that is the best part of this tool. You just carry it in your USB and then you can scan any system with the help of it. Now, after selecting the agreement, It will ask you to select the among the two options, the application of this window as been shown below. During scanning the file please make sure that your system is connected to the internet as initially it will check for the updates and then it will start the system scanning.
When you are using this tool for the first time then you will be selecting the first option and then it will scan some of the preloaded points in the system. After the scanning is complete it enlist the suspicious files in the window and then you can take the necessary actions against them. The screen for the detected files has been shown below in the snapshot. Now, when you choose that another option then it will check your previous scan and then you can take actions in relation to the changes made at that time.
