Adaware SE


Walkabout Specialist
This has been delayed to a provisional date of 15th August.

Taken this from the latest Newsletter.

Fortunately, Ad-Aware SE is just shy of being authorized for release and is prepared to meet the world of spyware head-on. Our internal testing is practically finished, but to make sure things are working properly, even though it has curved our release plans a bit to a later date than we expected, we’ve hired a Quality Assurance company to review Ad-Aware SE and provide additional testing, which is currently taking place, to make sure Ad-Aware SE is ready to take on the important task of protecting your systems. As of right now, we’re looking at August 15, 2004 as our release date, but this of course is subject to change.

It looks like it is going to be a great release, in the battle aganist dross :)

me too ep

hey poly, good to see you as always

I never ever get any spyware running any of these anti spy programs...the excellant sandbox that comes with adaware pro seems to do a fine job preventing anything from getting on my box.

do you use adwatch?

Looks like a nice list of updates. Probably worth updating once it comes out. BTW, I use both Spybot and Ad Aware...it seems there can be things that one finds which the other misses...

Waiting for the details of my pro version...
I guess we wait at the back as usual, they reckon Pro users should receive our instructions by Thursday at the latest.


As always nice to see you around, I use it but not all thetime, sometimes it can be a pain, mind you that could be me :D
