Ad-Aware 6.0 Plus Is Sweet!!

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by computerfreak76, Feb 1, 2003.

  1. i just downloaded it and i hate to say its much faster than the old versions probably 3 times faster more options and includes ad-watch runs in the background and tells you right away when you download something that contains spyware.

    i will recommend this product to anyone who wants to keep spyware out of their system!

    I made sure I purchased it as soon as it was available. Then knocked up a review which has now had 15,000 reads. And be translated into at least Czechoslavakian (sp.)

    the six is nice...it's even more then three times faster then the five....it spends no time getting into your drive, like it use to

    but, there are some issues.

    for instance, a common butg is that the adwatch can prevent the box from turning down.

    this is true ,my box...I have to turn adwatch off, before I put my baby to sleep.
    ets
    other issues as well... a few fasle positives, a few missed targets, like eudora.

    they are working on all of these issues

    so far, I think everyone should wait another week or two...but the six is definately going to turn into a nice proggy
