Ad Aware 6.


Recommended Posts

Ad-Watch apparently causes some weirdness in the Windows shutdown process too. People are talking about it on the Lavasoft support forum. With Ad-Watch running you either have to tell Windows to shutdown twice, or close Ad-Watch first, then shutdown. Seems pretty simple to me, but people are complaining none the less... So they'll probably fix it sooner or later with an update.

lorriehe, this is the letter I got from Lavasoft:


Dear Customer

Professional Editions.

We have completely redesigned the Ad-aware user interface and have

enhanced our scanning

and removal technology to bring you the MOST powerful lineup of privacy

software solutions

available! Your generous support has allowed us to not only improve our

technology it has

allowed us to expand our database to include a greater range of privacy

to your system.

Both versions are designed to provide you with continuous protection

from known Datamining,

aggressive advertising, Parasites, Scumware, Keyloggers, selected

traditional Trojans, Dialers,

Malware, Browser hijackers, and tracking components. And each comes

with the following features:


Increased speed - from a more powerful scanning engine, but also from

customizable file size

limits, user defined drive/folder selection and recognized process,

shell extensions and COM

object unloading.


Enhanced scanning - with powerful new heuristics, in-depth and

additional analytical routines.


Customization - that allows you to alter the way that Ad-aware

interacts with your system and

also in the way that it looks with a soon to be released skin editor.


Improved Safety and logging - that includes redundant archiving,

sensitive memory and registry

reporting capabilities,

real-time alerts, and an all new troubleshooting option to help resolve
