Get Ad Aware version 5.81 at this site;
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
As reported on XP-erience over a week ago.
Damn useful application tho, was suporsed when I ran it to see how much spyware was installed on my system!
It's great. I run it weekly at least and after the first time i have come up clean. I also install it on any machine i work on i have found over 400 on one computer. and i see an avarage of 100. very usefull program.
I agree. First time I ran it I had over 300 hits. And I never suspected a thing.
u guys must install alot proggys to get that much spy crap on ya systems i use ad-aware + 5.81 n ref updater 2.0 n all i find when i ran it the first time was the spy thing thats installed when u install xp im always coming up clean n i have a fair few progs installed to take alook
TR!GG3R, I agree, I only ever get 3-4 maximum.
I just got Norton Personal Firewall 2002, which helps even more now
heh i got that too cool aint it
Tell me about it, I was hit last night 3 times by backdoor trojan, NPF2002 blocked them all.
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!!
Must have a small hard drive J/K
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?
