  1. That's right, the much awaited free 6.0 version of Lavasoft Ad-Aware is now available for download, I really recommend you getting this tool. Thanks Majorgeeks for the tip.

    Ad-aware is an award winning, free multi adware removal utility, that scans your memory, registry and hard drives for known adware components and lets you remove them safely.

    Just installed it, have been getting redirected to porn sites sometimes when I didn't do anything.

    It found 36 ad files ;)

    the new engine is much faster, now you can select which parts of your Hard drive to scan. Very useful when you have partitions on a large drive. Also, updates are now handled by the main program, very good A+.

    Yeah I like it a lot too. Found a few things today that Spybot didn't even.

    It has worked really great for me, too. Much faster scanning now, BTW.

    I like the ad watch feature of it. Keeps an eye for anything out of the ordinary while you are browsing, working, etc.

    i would hazard a guess on the other 14:
    1 registry change
    2 registry change
    3 registry change
    4 registry change
    5 registry change
    6 registry change
    7 registry change
    8 registry change
    9 registry change
    10 delete all cookies
    11 move cookie files
    12 delete history for app A
    13 delete history for app B
    14 delete history for app C

    It does all this unnecessary searching that I do not need, lets not forget the best of 2002 is back, all updated, easy to use with tools for advanced users as well.
