We present a calculation of the complete (Formula presented) electroweak radiative corrections to the Møller scattering process (Formula presented) including hard bremsstrahlung contributions. We study the effects of these corrections on both the total cross section and polarization asymmetry measured in low energy fixed target experiments. Numerical results are presented for the experimental cuts relevant for E-158, a fixed target (Formula presented) experiment being performed at SLAC; the effect of hard bremsstrahlung is to shift the measured polarization asymmetry by (Formula presented) We briefly discuss the remaining theoretical uncertainty in the prediction for the low energy Møller scattering polarization asymmetry.
