55555 Ad-Aware


After critically analyzing all kinds of antispyware, I have come to the conclusion that Ad-Aware is simply the BEST and there is no doubt about it, at First I used AVG Anti-Spyware, I must say that its an impressive software too and take way less resources compared to Ad-Aware, however when it comes to efficiency, Ad-Aware wins easily by a mile, I scanned my computer with AVG Anti-Spyware, tried other anti-spyware, all said my PC was fine, however my computer was still getting Bytes sent and received which meant that there was something fishy going on in my computer...and it was..... Until I scanned it with Ad-Aware it found TWO High Risk Spyware apart from the tracking cookies and it removed them, after that I got no problems!! Oh yes, let me tell you that IT IS a bit heavy on resources,(Ad-Watch takes like 55mb of my RAM, which is 1 GB in total) but its EXTREMELY Effective, Get it guys it Rocks!

This program gives too many users a false sense of security. It is a decent supplement to other anti-spyware or anti-adware, unfortunately, it can no longer be considered a great solution. Don't get me wrong, I have used it for years and will continue to do so. You can't complain when it's free, just don't think that if you get a clean scan with this, that you're actually clean.

55555 A Valuable Tool


Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06 and Spybot-Search&Destroy 1.4 form a great team to fight spyware on your computer. Before these I used Microsoft AntiSpyware, but I was forced to find other, because I don't have English Windows version. Lucky these two find and remove more spyware than MSAS alone. If you don't have Windows XP SP2 (=with ActiveX blokker) you might consider to download SpywareBlaster 3.4. These three (without MSAS) work together excellent without errors, problems or other conflicts and can be uninstalled without rests via control panel if you are not satisfied, which I don't think, because these three are the best free alternative for MSAS.
