Ad-aware 6.0 Plus Quick-Look

| Posted: Jan 29, 2003 3:24 pm

NTFS.org has taken a look at Ad-aware's latest update to their famous "evil software" sniffer. And by that I mean it finds and eliminates most Datamining, aggressive advertising, Parasites, Scumware, Keyloggers, selected traditional Trojans, Dialers, Malware, Browser hijackers, and tracking components. Ad-aware completely stopped updating the previous version of the software to put all their resources into this new creation. The free version of Ad-aware 6.0 should be available in February.

With the scan complete in a fraction of the time that 5.0x used to take, I discover that my system has 4 various pieces of recognised spy-ware of ad-ware on it, my system was clean... I used Ad-aware 5.83 this very morning to remove any spy-ware! What is even more worrying is the fact it has discovered a registry key!
