There is a totally new interface & engine, the new AV module is actually from Vipre & the program runs well with little slowdown or bloat.

The problem is Ad-Aware was years ago great but recently was dreadful, bloated & very resource hungry so it's going to take time for it to regain any sort of reputation esp with past users. - The pay version isn't expensive - Time will tell but looking much better - Worth a try now.

I remember the anti-spyware version of this program falling out of favour a few years ago, when it did indeed become very resource - hungry. It's now a full Antivirus & Antispyware package and very light on the system wherever I've used it.

Best of all, the Antivirus comparison sites list it up there among the top handful for the level of protection it gives.
