"Ad removal appears to be the cover for many more."
In the past, Ad-Aware has been a good product to suppress un-wanted advertising.
This particular download incorporates a whole host of other programs, both announced and unannounced. You may want them, you may not. Just know that your download will include a whole lot more than just an update of the little old harmless Ad-Aware, which once did a fine job suppressing unwanted advertising
I am surprised that CNet even has such a program available on its site for downloading, especially without advising its patrons that the Ad-Aware download will involve a whole lot more than just simply Ad-Aware. I have relied on CNet in the past to separate the genuine from the come-ons, the legitimate from those seeking to invade your privacy as well as your identity and finances. I am very disappointed that they seemed to have missed the fact that a download of AD-Aware downloads a whole lot of other things which may or may not be harmful. I didn't keep any of them, including Ad-Aware itself long enough (I hope) to find out. Nor was it easy to remove many of the programs included with this Trojan Horse, and many were hidden under names entirely unrelated to AdAware.
