8.2 (May 7, 2010)
Ad-aware used to be such a good program. I used it for about 10 years and it caught just about everything on my computer. Since they upgraded to the Anniversary Edition, it is completely useless. I have a computer with xp and a gig of ram which is plenty for xp and it constantly locks up my computer and uses almost half of my RAM. Locks up the computer to the point that I can’t even use it, even when it is not scanning. I tried to go back to some of the older versions, but they made it where you cannot update them anymore. One only gets to 5% and will not update, the other gives and error retrieving update at 84%. And none of the other versions will let you update either. Since the new version is useless and locks up the computer and they have disabled the older versions from being updated, I am forced to switch to another program. I am going to go back to Mal-Ware Bytes Anti-Malware as that does not lock up my computer and does the job.
