  1. I was reading some reviews online for Ad-Aware SE Personal and some of the poeple said that they noticed that the program puts crap on your computer so results show up for the product...is this true?

    That`s absolute rubbish.

    Ad-Aware se personal is one of the most respected antispyware programmes around. The company that make it Lavasoft would have far to much to lose by doing anything stupid like that.

    I`ve used it myself for a number of years. It never finds anything on my system cause my system is clean as a whistle. No other antispyware/antivirus programme finds anything either.

    It used to find stuff on my system, but only before I started using Firefox.

    I`d recommend the programme to anyone.

    Regards Howard :)

    Ok, thanks, I know how a lot of noobs say stupid things (I try not to). I was just making sure that I wouldn't get screwed while trying to do anything with it (the program).

    It wasn`t a stupid thing to say at all.

    When I said it was absolute rubbish, I was referring to the comments you`d read, claiming Ad-Aware se personal was an unscrupulous programme.

    Regards Howard :)
