"Stay away! Hijacks "page not found""
After trying ad-aware you'll never use a Lavasoft product again.
It has a "safe browing" plugin. I deactivated it right away, but even after deinstalling the software, it still hijacks the browser "page not found" redirecting you to an adpage with yahoo search.
If you've been hit with it, you can remove it uninstalling from the control panel the Ad-aware browser toolbar. Even if you choose not to install it, there it is.
Never saw an anti-ad program that hijacks the browser to display ads. The sofware has changed a lot since years have passed and it couldn't have been worse.
More than ad-aware, this is adware.
