With its ability to scan your RAM, Registry, hard drives, and external storage devices for known data mining, advertising, and tracking components, Ad-aware can easily rid your system of these tracking components, allowing you to maintain a higher degree of privacy while you surf the Web.
The redesigned user interface improvements include more flexibility and control. This includes user-defined file sizes, which speeds up the scanning process by excluding files that it recognizes as clean. Other advanced features include automatic quarantine and recycle bin storage of removed components, an all-new viewer for backup archives that allows you to quickly and easily review components that have been removed and stored for future restoration, and an integrated reference file updater that can automatically search for new reference files when Ad-aware is started. Be aware that some ad-supported programs, such as GoZilla Free, will no longer function if you remove their ad modules.
Note: This version of Ad-aware detects the CNET Download Manager, powered by the Kontiki Delivery Network, as adware. To avoid uninstalling the CNET Download Manager, please exclude any Kontiki files currently recognized by Ad-aware.
