I had ads popping up everywhere, had no idea what the hell was going on, or how it happened. Searched the web, found out about yet ANOTHER virus, and everyone recommended this. Used it, and it fixed the problem right away. Highly recommended.

Yet another great program shoots itself with an atrocious new UI that looks like it was designed by Fischer Price. Not only are there big bars telling me I'm not fully protected(when all I want to do is a simple scan) but it has headlines stream across the bottom bar of the program, and that's with a Pro license. It has also gone the Skype route in that the close button no longer closes the program but instead minimizes it to the tray.

Been with AMB for many years, bought license some years ago, one of the best purchases I have ever done.
The change from the old 1.xx to the new 2.xx was a smooth ride, not a single problem, even the change from old to new license-key was handled automatically, hands down still best.
For those who use the free version, do yourself a favor and go Premium, it's well worth the money.
this is one of the best anti spyware tools there is. i combine this with a couple of other tools but this one is definitely one of the most diligent monitors of incoming system activity!
While recently trying to download the latest printer driver for my mother's printer which i wanted to print a few items with from my laptop, i inadvertantly downloaded the hardware helper program, and after a scan, not only did it ask for $29.95 to fix several driver's that it said needed updates, but it has changed my access level internally. I am still listed as Administrator, but am unavailable to un-install this as i am prompted that I do not have administrator access. Also, There are several minor things that Kasdpersky found, that i also am not being allowed to correct for the same reason that I dio not have administrator access ... PLEASE HELP ! I run SpyBot Search and Destroy, which only finds cookies, and Malwareware Bytes ... PLEASE HELP I NEED THIS REMOVED, and Administrator access restored.
ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED !
