    Should be fine to use, pay attention when installing tho, sometimes they like to sneak in extra programs when you click accept, so read what is on the screen.

    Be very careful when using Norton Power Eraser.
    Because it's so aggressive, it may flag and select some legitimate programs and files for removal.

    It maybe over aggressive, but I'll just call it stupid: it flagged my log on scripts for quarantine.
