    "A must have along with the other major spyware scanners."

    February 21, 2006  |   By OniOokamiAlfador


    An extremely useful product, whether used alone or in conjunction with other swpyware products. Ad-Aware has an incredibly high detection rate, returning very few non-spyware or "false" results. After running both Spybot Search and Destroy and Microsoft Antispy, a scan from ad aware still detected 42 critical objects that the other programs missed. As with any good spyware scanning program, Ad-Aware works best when used in conjuction with other scanners. However, if you have to choose only one, make it Ad-Aware.
