With behavior-based threat detection and integrated real-time monitoring, Ad-Aware focuses on core consumer security needs. Instead of adding layers of bells and whistles--thereby slowing your computer and scans down--we have decided to focus on what really matters. Ad-Aware provides advanced threat protection, and is significantly lighter and faster than our previous versions.
What's new in this version:
Version 8.2 adds genotype detection, behavior-based heuristics, e-mail scanner, rootkit removal system, the neutralizer, download guard for Internet Explorer, simple mode/advanced mode, custom skins, and community-driven translations.
