    A long-awaited upgrade to AdAware may be released by Christmas, according to some gossip on the Lavasoft <u>forums</u>. I will not be holding my breath, but it could be very good news...

    The rumor does not stop there:
    <u>From Spyware Weekly</u>

    We'll just have to wait and see what happens! What I haven't seen reference to is whether or not they will be upgrading the free version to Version 6 as well.

    I'll stick to SpyBot from now on, but I am sure it works for many others and they are awaiting this new version. :)

    Even though the current version of AdAware didn't catch your particular bug, Leon, I'd still recommend running both. Each will catch things that the other does not. There is no conflict between the two, either; they cohabit well on your machine.

    I used to use both Ad-Aware and Spybot but I ended
    choosing SPYBOT.The upgrates are quick and occur regularly and this is not what's happening with Ad-Aware(to say the least).
    I must admit that mboston and the rest of the Ad-Aware's forum members and mods are always ready to help.But IMHO,in his present version Ad-Aware is far from competing with Spybot.

    Been running Ad-aware for quite awhile now and like it. I have not used the Spy Bot program but am going to DL and check it out....

    Ad Aware was definitely a necessity with the kids machine..They download everything they can get their hands on..hehehehehe

    And I thought it was just me with this!!!

    Glad that I am not the only one but I am very disappointed by AdAware.

    You don't suppose it has anything to do with the <strike>type</strike> amount of <strike>material</strike> stuff we download <strike>or places we frequent</strike>...do you???:angel:

    I thought about that, so it's a possibility. :angel:

    However, AdAware is still on the hot spot for not catching all of my and your problems.
