    Unhappy spybot lost

    Though I never used it I read the info on cnet and the free version was said"not to live up to it's promises"(not exact) but I will try it after I run spybot and see what happens-and vice versa-I will edit this message with comparison results about 11 EST.



    I ran the two and spybot missed two after i intentionally ran around sites unprotected
    the only way to fix it is to flush it all away-tool

    After all. It was time they made the decision to release it after the problems with the lack of updates for the version 5.
    I will immediately try it. This soft makes a good job usually. There are no reasons he had changed this habit.

    I have downloaded it and ran it on servel machines that were given the all clear with ad aware 5 and it picked up many more reg keys, programs and cookies, I think its a lot better than 5 and hopefully it will be update much more than 5 as well, although for a free program you can't really fault it

    I was wondering when they were actually going to make it available on their site. It was advertised as being released, but when you clicked on the link to download, it would say that it would be released in early Feb. This was just a couple of days ago, this month. I'm glad to see it's out. I will definitely be installing it soon. Thanks for the notice and the links. Good luck getting your machine back to normal.


    Cheers

    Yesterday, I downloaded and installed the free version of AdAware 6.0. It found numerous files and reg keys that ver. 5.62 missed. Version 6.0 appears to be better than than the earlier model, but I've only used it for a day.

    Well 5.8 would not run my box, it had some problem with a temp file (It was in german, so I have no idea what it says) while scanning, leaving me with only an abort option on the scan. I hope 6 is better.
