    Hello everyone,

    I have Ad-Aware 5.83 and i have noticed no updates on the software signatures or anything. What is another good program for removing Spyware like Ad-aware?

    Thank you for your help

    The reason there havn't been many updates is becasue Ad-aware 6.0 will be comming out soon. It is in beta now.

    I have heard horror stories from the former administrator at the lavasoft board, coyote, and also from one of the moderators that I hold in the highest regard, tony klein.

    I am very concerned with and about the supposed adaware 6

    everyone here knows there has been no bigger supporter of this great company then myself.

    however, the abandonment of their constitituents has been irresponsible, hasn't it

    also, the alleged 6

    there is no beta, ther is no alpha.

    if 6 really is released forthwith, the users will be unwilling beta testers.

    sorry

    unacceptable

    hmm.. good point Dealer...

    but maybe they're just having a little hiccup.. i have been pleased with the performance of the older versions of Ad-Aware series (apart from the no updates).. but they used to be up to date and really supportive and was able to remove most spyware.. i dont think they would abandon it all like that...

    Maybe your right tho.. i havent seen any alpha versions or beta versions of the software.. but was there any alpha versions or beta versions with the past versions of ad-aware?

    You gotta respect there past work with the program, like i said, they were able to remove most spyware from the systems

    Thanks for the hints dealer and BTW - am waiting to hear from Waddy (in regards to permission to use NTFS) before I send the letter off.

    I don't think we'll sneak this past Iceman:eek:

    See - he's faster than I am!:cool:

    I have faith in Adaware, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

    So in a couple of weeks we will find out about Adaware 6.
