If you google norman malware cleaner review you will find quite a few mediocre reviews. 'Word of mouth' isn't that great. I've never used the product and my initial searches for information do not give me any indications I'd be willing to try it.

Over all I was underwhelemed at the lackluster reviews in general.

Norman Malware Cleaner is a non-comprehensive tool designed for use on computers which have already been infected. It is limited in scope because it uses a list of specifically targeted malware in its definition database and will only detect/remove what is found on that list.

The tool is versatile in that it is portable, frequently update and can be configured to scan from a flash drive.
