Due to the circumstances surrounding Ad-Aware being uninstalled by a rogue application, I created a small, quick program to deal with this threat. Ad-Aware Checker v1.0 notifies you whenever Ad-Aware files are deleted or changed. You can keep it running in the background, at a scan interval of whatever you want (default is 10 seconds, but 1 second works fine with no slowdown on my computers since it is only 28 kb). It also allows you to minimize the program to the system tray to reduce taskbar clutter, while it still scans, and pops up if anything malicious or suspicious activities surrounding the Ad-Aware files are detected. Temporary download site is here: http://javacool2.freeservers.com. I would recommend either letting the program run whenever you install a new program or let it run for the first time, or you could even let it run constantly (as it is only 28 kb and uses hardly any cpu). New versions may have even more features - this version was released right now as I intended on getting it out as soon as possible to counter this threat. Comments/question/suggestions are greatly appreciated. Enjoy! -javacool P.S. The Ad-Aware Checker program watches two files - the main Ad-Aware executable (ad-aware.exe) and the reflist (reflist.sig) - for any modifications or deletion.
