Ad-aware scans your memory, registry, and hard drives for software components from Adware, Alexa, Aureate (1.0, 2.0, and 3.0), Comet Cursor (1.0 and 2.0), Cydoor, Doubleclick, DSSAgent, Flyswat, Gator, TimeSink (1.0 and 2.0), Web3000, and Webhancer. Ad-aware then displays a list of detected spyware files and allows you to selectively remove them from your system. Click here to see a screen shot.
This update supports command-line parameters, automized scanning, auto-start with Windows, detailed log files, an uninstaller, expanded detection, and a help file.
Note: Some advertisement-supported software may not work after the ad-monitoring components have been removed. If you run Ad-aware under Windows NT/2000, you will need to log in with administrator privileges.
