    Norton Power Eraser 1.7.0.3

    Norton Power Eraser
    is a powerful removal tool that may help you clean up certain types of difficult to remove security risks. If a program has hijacked your computer and you are having difficulty detecting or removing it, Norton Power Eraser may be able to clean your computer. Norton Power Eraser includes detection and removal capabilities for security risks that impersonate legitimate applications (for example, fake antivirus software), often known as "scareware", "rogueware" or "scamware".

    The tool uses more aggressive techniques than your Norton security product, hence there is a risk that it will flag legitimate programs for removal. You should carefully review the scan results page before removing any files. You do not need to install Norton Power Eraser. When the download is complete, just double click the icon on your desktop and the tool will start. You will need to accept the End User License Agreement before running a scan.

    Are you sure malware actually downloaded to your computer from those sites and did you run scans with MBAM, Hitman Pro, etc. to make sure that NPE did miss them? I find NPE has a lot of FPs with initial scan, but you then have option to scan each item against Norton's larger database.

    Yes it does. Although, I would rather it be too sensitive than not sensitive enough. I can always comb-through the results afterwards.

    Indeed, it's called Power Eraser for a reason.
