"This demands it start with Windows is worthless."

January 24, 2009  |  By bc3141

 |  Version: Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition 1.06

Pros

Mothing if I can't get it to stop starting with Windows.

Cons

How do you stop adware free anniversary edition from starting with windows?

Summary

Yes I know it won't protect you if you go online without it. 90% of the time I turn my computer on I DON'T go online. I don't want this program starting every time I turn my machine on. This is the first program my "Startup Control" program can't get rid of. I hate programs like this. Any way to stop it?

"Very good, it works, use it regularly"

September 03, 2006  |  By chipchurp

 |  Version: Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition 1.06

Pros

This one works, it finds / idinities things that the last one I had did not. I run it evertime I am about to shut off the CPU, gets rid of anything that showed up while I was online.

Cons

It does not block things, it recognizes / identifies and will remove them at your comand.

"Ad-Aware from Lavasoft simply works...and it works well!"

August 31, 2006  |  By sohappysingle

 |  Version: Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition 1.06

Pros

I have downloaded and tried many antispyware programs, and read many blogs, tech sites and reviews on them. It comes down to this: "Make sure you have Ad-Aware, BitDefender and ZoneAlarm!" That's it.

Cons

Unless you reboot(restart your PC) before you do a scan, it can take quite a while. ...Which is a PC thing, due to full memory(RAM), not the product.

"some *spy* files were not detected by this program"

August 20, 2006  |  By bdiu2

 |  Version: Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition 1.06

Pros

I like how fast it is, that it is easy to run and that our wonderfully geeky computer man recomends it highly. Also, can't beat the price. It's good old fashioned cool stuff.

Cons

I didn't like that I found some files when I searched on *spy* (which I was told was spyware) in My Documents files & folders. That the spyware was in the quicken files is a real concern.
