Ad-Aware 2007 Beta 4

Ad-Aware 2007 is the latest version of Lavasoft's industry leading anti-spyware solutions. Ad-Aware 2007 allows you to combat the growing threats and latest advancements of malicious spyware and malware. Ad-Aware 2007 protects you from spyware that secretly takes control of your computer, resulting in aggressive advertising pop-ups, sluggish computer activity and even identity theft through stolen private information. We give you the tools to detect hazardous content on your computer, clearly identify their threat level, and then give you the control to remove unwanted content, so that your private information remains right where it should - under your control. Lavasoft's advanced Code Sequence Identification (CSI) technology roots out deeply hidden malware and then searches for similar codes in order to identity emerging variants. Ad-Aware 2007 thoroughly scans your memory, registry, Hosts file, hard, removable and optical drives for known data-mining, aggressive advertising, parasites, scumware, keyloggers, trojans, dialers, malware, browser hijackers, and tracking components.

I think that's really crazy when all someone has to complain about is the gui! Who gives a rats a** what it looks like as long as it works. In fact, I'll take a plain jane/ugly looking gui to a overly bloated "pretty" gui anyday.

Edit:
Just installed the new version. Absolutely NO DIFFERENCE between this version and old version, except can not connect to update!! Adaware is nothing more than a cookie/mru checker anymore anyway. Very seldom use it.

GUI design and usability are VERY important. If I can't figure out how to use a feature then that feature is pretty much useless, is it not?

An effective GUI design can completely change a customer's opinion of a product, and conversely a horrible GUI design can render a product virtually unusable.

FYI, there is an entire business sector that focuses on usability, GUI design, and graphics design.

Lavasoft clearly has never heard of or used these services though. x)

I don't like the GUI, could have been more clean and with a more modern look... it's too bulky for my taste.

I try not to add comments when I simply agree to a comment, but I must in this situation because it's so bad.

Yup,

the GUI reminds me so much of some of those fake anti-spyware apps.

I agree and the whole GUI a massive step in the wrong direction.
