    Whatever happened to this once great program? Versions 6 and 7 were magnificent but 8 and now 9 are horrid!
    Stick with Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware. They are clean, no phone home spyware/adware, 99 percent smaller installers and unlike Ad-Aware 9.0 they do not take over your machine and make you the slave.
    Bala7 - Ad-Aware is no longer classed as scanner/remover software so comparisons with free programs such as MBAM and SAS are not relevant.

    Trouble is: Ad-Aware free used to be a pretty reasonable scanner/remover but now it has moved into the realm of 'anti-virus' software it is taking on some pretty stiff opposition.

    Ad-Aware is underdone when compared to other free anti-virus solutions; full real-time protection is limited in Ad-Aware. Also missing are Web surfing protection and silent or gaming mode which are now standard fair in most competitors' products.

    Lavasoft are gradually improving the software, this latest version adds a new type of detection engine called "Dedicated Detection" to compliment the existing "Genotype" heuristics based engine...but it still has a loooong way to go.
    Agree with both you guys, Ad-Aware did used to be a "must have" program but has suffered a lot with the silly introduction of sponsorships to download certain versions of their app, plus their installers have been inflated terribly, I mean 124Mb is way major excessive for my liking given both Avast and SuperAntiSpyware combined are less than half this size!. Personally, I've not used Ad-Aware for some time now, I favour SuperAntiSpyware :)
