The program crashed
but first ...
I have services I do not use disabled... Norman "quarantined" the settings thus enabling these services.

I have used DNS bench to choose 7 best Name servers Norman Malware Cleaner chose to "quarantine" these and would or could not restore them. The quarantine record did however contain the data so I was able to restore them with Regedit.

I would have given this application a higher rating, if it would allow you to select what it deletes. Instead, this program automatically deleted programs/files that it thought was malware on my PC. It will delete what it believes is some type of malware, disregarding any possibility of a FALSE POSITIVE, with no undo function.

Most of Norman's products are not yet compatible with Windows Vista, including this free tool. The product home page tells you so, but the download page here is misleading by indicating "OS Support: Windows (All)." It should be all EXCEPT Windows 95 and Vista.

on Vista: Unable to initialise(sic) scanning engine.

Also: error messages / reports need to have copy/paste/send to clipboard functionality.

Good Luck.
