I still use it, it finds the odd cookies on my pc. Then I use spybot and that's it.
Every now and then I try other programs to see if it finds anything but nope, nothing :)
I'm a smart pc user and never been infected by anything other than a cookie.. lol

didn't lavasoft take money from larger adware companies (i.e. gator) to remove them from their definitions?

no thanks!

Shut the god damn **** up!.........you know nothing!

its a copy/paste


I guess a good old c&p is what counts as "news" these days, at least for some "news" posters. Cutting and pasting other sites content might allow a huge volume of posts to be made, but quality is surely lacking these days.

I'd like to see news / software posts by people who actually try the software in question, or are at least aware of what the software does.

finally an update ! :D

Ad-aware > windows defender

windows defender found nothing, then i open ad-aware and it finds 50+ things........

Yes, most likely cookies.

Although Ad-Aware and Spybot Search and Destroy have always been my favorites, along with Windows Defender.

The key is to use unbiased software. Sign up, wait for RC1, report any false positives and see if Spybot detects more or less of something for-sure malware than Ad-Aware and report it. Make the authors aware and allow the software to become better.
Of course the best thing would be to not get infected in the first place, but a lot of people play online poker. :P
