    Been using it for a couple years off and on, seems like it has recently got better.  found since using it I have almost no "pup" and my scans from Rootkiller, Mcafee, Norton Power Eraser, Malwarebytes and Mcafee Stinger all have been coming up clean.  Shows all the tracking it blocks, this must be good.  would like to hear some opinions on Epic Privacy Browser.  also the free VPN with changeable locations seems to work good

    I like it,

Epic Privacy Browser honestly isn't the best for privacy, at all. It might include a free VPN but at what cost? It's guaranteed that it holds your information against you. Brave is a much better browser at protecting your privacy and assisting you with securing your web-browsing. Out-of-the-box it has a built-in adblocker, along with tracking & crypto-miner protection, fingerprinting protection, option to block all scripts, as well as phishing & malware protection AND it enforces SSL. Another option you could go with is Mozilla Firefox and install extensions such as uBlock Origin (adblocker), HTTPSEverywhere, Privacy Badger, etc.

Have you tried turning it off and back on? :P

NoScript too!

Norton Power Eraser is a free virus removal tool specially designed to detect and eliminate malware threats using aggressive scanning technology. As such, Norton warns there is a risk that it can target some legitimate programs for removal so you should carefully review the scan results page before removing files. In the past Symantec advised Norton Power Eraser was more of a tool of last resort...I have never seen the need to use it. However, if you accidentally remove a legitimate program, Norton Power Eraser can be rerun to review past repair scans and undo the deletions.
