    Dear betaguine,

    Thank you for your post and I am sorry you feel this way. Unfortunately Ad-Aware is not a spyware we have over 450,000 million downloads worldwide and over 1 million downloads for this current version. Your post is lacking a lot of info to be able to assist, if you would like any assistance please use this link: http://www.lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/support/supportcenter/adaware_critical_problem_report

    Kind regards,
    Corina - Lavasoft support
