"Giant step backward"
Couldn't find one.
Gobbles CPU time and memory.
I've used Ad-Aware free for years and loved it, but after upgrading to 9.0 I ended up having to uninstall it. After installing it, it sucked up 50% of my CPU time and kept continuously gobbling more and more memory, eventually bringing my PC virtually to its knees. And all this was while it wasn't even supposed to be running! I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it several times and finally gave up.
