The Countdown to Ad-Aware 2007

Ad-Aware 2007 is coming soon to a computer near you.

Lavasoft is currently putting the finishing touches on the release candidate with the help of our loyal VIP beta-testers. The developers have been hard at work for months on the latest version of the anti-spyware tool used by more than 200 million computer users around the world today.

"Thanks to the input from our users around the world, I am thrilled to bring a new Ad-Aware product to the market that is designed to meet the needs of today's computer user," says Lavasoft CEO Ann-Christine Ã…kerlund. "As soon as Ad-Aware 2007 hits the market, we will be turning our attention to the next generation of Lavasoft products."

Ad-Aware 2007 will be available in Free (formerly known as Personal), Plus and Pro versions. An updated version of Enterprise will be launched at a later date. Along with an updated product, we have given Ad-Aware's icon and retail box design a makeover; the new looks are familiar, but fresh.

Windows Defender always works best for me, it's free, it is non-obtrusive, can be centrally managed over a network of computers.
However, I think the best solution for customers is running as a limited user, and a bit of education on not to click on pop-up adverts.

If you knew some secret facts about AD-Aware, you'd be less happy.
Their least important secret is that the number of malware signatures they show is 3 or 4 times the real number.

How is that bad?

Ad-Aware rules. It might miss a few things that trend micro antispyware had found but an update helps. I use Windows Defender alongside to be ad+spy free. I have bought pro and have found Ad-Watch SE to be a bit useless, only logging yet eats up a bit of resources. It is still good anyways, congrats Lavasoft.

unlike anti viruses there is no best spyware app and thats why you should use a few of them, I'm a big fan of Spybot and Ad-aware and I'm glad they're finally releasing a new version.

i always run this and spybot... spybot will sometimes fine something that adaware doesn't tho, but spybot just might be a little more strict about non-serious things....

ad-aware is nice tho...

I've run both of them on customers' systems and the majority of the time they both find about the same things but there has been a couple of instances where adaware found things and spybot found next to nothing and one where spybot found things that adaware didn't. So I still run both of them just to be on the safe side.

same here. both are good.

Same here too. It's easier to use is mainly why I make sure people understand that one, if they can't comprehend Spybot.

I prefer Spybot over Adaware anyday though. In fact, at this moment, I don't even have Adaware installed on any of my systems. Do still have it on the wife's and kid's computers.

Will defintitely give the new version a try though.

Used to use it until the original beta of Windows Defender came out. Now I stick with Windows Defender and Spybot S&D.

Might try this out though to see how much has changed.

No, free software FTW.

Why pay for stuff (or bother pirating non-free software) when the free alternatives work as well or better?
