Norman Malware Cleaner is an anti-malware utility which can be used as a last resort for removing infections of many different harmful components.
The application can remove system processes, infections residing on a hard drive, restore registry entries, reset the Windows hosts file and remove harmful entries made to the Microsoft Windows Firewall.
The basic interface of Norman Malware Cleaner offers straightforward options with several check boxes. Options include enable scanning, unpack archives (such as ZIP or RAR files contain infections), to stop scanning after deleting a file. Other options include verbose logging and disable overwriting existing files.
An unfortunate feature lacking inside of Norman Malware Cleaner is the display of how long a scan may take.
Once a scan has completed, its actions will be logged to a file displayed inside of the log window under "Logging to:". The results will display a list of how many files were found, archives unpacked, objects found, objects scanner and the number of malicious objects found. The interface provides access to different tabs for different actions such as results, scan, quarantine and an about box.
Overall, Norman Malware Cleaner is a competent but basic malware scanner which may not always find infections. It is highly recommended to run Norman Malware Cleaner in "Safe Mode".Norman Malware Cleaner features and highlights:
