A Norman program utility that may be used to detect and remove specific malicious software

Norman Malware Cleaner is one of the
new apps in the security software industry, promising to keep computers
around the world away from malware and other dangerous files that could
compromise user’s safety.Although it comes packed as an over 130 MB file, Norman Malware Cleaner has adopted a different approach. It
doesn’t have an installer, since viruses are now attempting to block
installation of antiviruses and security tools, so it’s being delivered
as an executable file, which means you only need to double click the
file to launch the app.The interface is pretty basic and that’s a
very good thing, since the purpose of the whole software is to find and
delete infections. There are four scanning modes, quick,
normal, full and custom, so choose the one that fits you best. Of
course, the full mode will need much more time, while the quick one is
better for a quick analysis of the computer.During our testing,
scanning the computer in quick mode took around 2 minutes, while the
full option needed around 20 minutes to complete. Still, the latter was a
bit more efficient as it checked every single file on the computer for
malicious data.There are multiple options available in the
dedicated tab, giving you the power to enable verbose logging,
quarantine, archive unpacking, memory scanning, FakeAV scanning, rootkit
cleaning, multithreading, detection of potentially unwanted programs
and Sandbox.The Quarantine tab provides a quick look over the
suspicious files detected by Norman Malware Cleaner, with dedicated
tools to restore or delete the files permanently at the bottom of the
main window.Another good thing about Norman Malware Cleaner is
the fact that it’s free, but otherwise it won’t do much more than your
regular antivirus. Still, if cleaning your computer of infected files
wasn’t possible with the existing tools, this one is really worth a
