    Hi Guys

    What do you think of the New Ad-Aware? Is there anyone using it right now. At the very beginning it was one if not the most popular security products in the industry. Now I think it has a lost a lot of its popularity to Avira, Avast, and AVG etc... Since I have not tried it in a long while I just wanted to know how is it doing for those who are using or already tested it.

    Thanks.

    It was one of the first support-programs of the real av, but I never trusted a lot. Since the beginning A-Squared was absolutely another thing.

    Back in the early 2000s Adaware and Spybot were an amazing combo. Nowadays its outdated and doesn't have the newest malware in its definitions.
