    It has come to our attention that there may be a new virus and/or Trojan masquerading as a legitimate Ad-aware download. This file or software is called aware.exe or some variation of this. We have also been informed that there may be someone out there who is actively using pop ups that seem as though they are from LavaSoft. Please be sure to only download our products from the official mirror sites listed on our downloads page:

    This includes ONLY the following sites:

    In the interim, we are aggressively investigating these reports and are looking at every example of them we can locate. If you suspect that you have been infected with a virus of this name or are experiencing pop ups that look as though they came from LavaSoft or seem to advertise any of our products, please contact a Moderator or Administrator immediately and we will investigate this. You can also send information to the following address:
