Thats right folks, Lavasoft have released their freeware version of ad-aware following their recent announcement of Ad-aware Professional.
Heres a word from Bee @ lavasoft :
It is with great pleasure that we make our popular anti-trackware utility available to the public. We know that you have waited a long time for this release and now it has finally arrived! We could have spent the last few months constantly replying to some of our more vocal critics, but instead chose to answer their challenge by providing our users with the best combination of privacy solutions available. The same effort and craftsmanship that we put into our registered versions has been put into our freeware offering.
Contrary to some reports and rumors that would have you believe we had abandoned Ad-aware or were releasing beta software, we have poured our hearts, souls and bodies into this project. We encourage you to try our software and compare it to what others are offering (sometimes at outrageous prices) for FREE! Then you will understand how far ahead of the rest of the industry our products are and why you can't be without Ad-aware in your personal privacy arsenal.
Ad-aware is a free multi spyware removal utility that scans your memory, registry, and hard drives for known spyware components and lets you remove them safely.
