    Updates are still available for the earlier version of Ad-Aware, but I agree that version 2007 is poorer in quality.

    I've been looking for a replacement, and am currently testing Malwarebyte's product. It's free, unless you want protection always running in the background (which I don't).

    So far, it seems nice. Simple UI, and is able to clean out some items that others miss.

    Agreed, I had lots of support, was a paid user. But since their latest releases starting with AdAware 2007, they have gone way down.

    The "business" is taking over, and has become only about the profit, not about a rock solid application anymore.

    Yes, good review, Haxalot.

    I used to do some beta testing, but I've pretty much given up on it. I send in reports to a few programs with developers I really admire, like AdMuncher.

    I gave up on AdAware when it ceased letting me download updates for the earlier version a few months ago. Recent versions are so much dead weight.

    I'm still using Spybot and SpywareBlaster. I agree that it's best to have multiple programs, but Ad-Aware has lost it.
