    with this new adware, you will also need a new refupdate program...the program that updates adware files...the old program is not compatible with the new one...a complete uninstall and reinstall is neccessary

    Tell me about it, I was hit last night 3 times by backdoor trojan, NPF2002 blocked them all. :D

    Christ knows how many times that happened without warning before I got NPF2002!! could explain stability problems I seemed to get after afew days of a fresh install!! :rolleyes:

    I like ad-aware as it removes the few things I don't catch, the most i've ever had it list was about 8-10...what I am kind of worried about is it lists my clock program (ghrone) as spyware...now I know the clock isn't accessing the net at all..so what could adaware possibly see as spyware in it?
