    I was just wondering what version should I install at this moment, would u go for the new build or stay with the old adware build 181 and wait to see how the new version comes along.
    I did have the old version installed without any bother, but after a reformat of xp pro, due to unmountable boot volume and nothing to do with adaware, I am looking for your advise.

    Your help is appreciated

    Hello The Mul

    I'm using the new version on XP home with no problems. I went through the first two releases with no problems also. Some people that use a hosts file had some hiccups.
    It runs well and has more options and some handy plugins.

    Uses more memory to do that. There is an option to adjust memory usage which in turn slows it down.

    Totally agree, I'm on XP Home, it must scan in at least ½ the time of previous version. No problems whatsoever. :cool:
