Ad-Aware 2007 Beta 5

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 installed the beta, and was not impressed.

What really bothered me, was that even though I configured it NOT to run in the background, it STILL kept a process loaded and running at all times.
And to make matters worse, I noticed my computer was suddenly slow, and some applications that I clicked on were not opening. When I discovered and killed that new process that was running in taskmanager, the speed returned to normal and all programs that I was unable to open, suddenly all loaded normally.
This was enough for me, and Add/Remove Programs was my next stop.

I understand it's in beta, but but so far all I see is another program that wants to get its claws into my system and not let go, even when I tell it not to.
