Note: This file has been replaced by Ad-Aware Plus.
Long a favorite tool of computer users looking to rid their systems of annoying adware and spyware, Ad-aware Plus offers real-time protection, much as antivirus software does in blocking virus threats.
Many of us are familiar with the free version of Ad-Aware, which removes unwanted adware and spyware after they land on your PC. For $27, the Plus version offers more proactive features, such as real-time monitoring for blocking pop-up ads. It also prevents home-page switches in your Web browser, and it prohibits Web site-based Active-X programs from installing on your PC. Finally, the program lets you back up adware components before you remove them, in case you accidentally cripple one you want, such as Kazaa.
This latest SE version features improved results screens and more detailed statistics. It lets you protect sensitive system files. It lets you scan your Registry, memory, and hard disk faster and more extensively. It has an improved interface, permanent archive caching, and a new technology to identify new and unknown variants of known targets. Finally, it lets you scan spanned archives and Cabinet files.
