I'll update soon as I'm out of this game of lineageHelicopters don't fly; they vibrate so much and make so much noise that the earth rejects them.

Nice! Ad-Aware was getting outdated already in my opinion.
Anyways, thanks for the head up. Will install it right away.

Finding a lot of crap the previous version didn't find.
Also, a lot of AVG pop-ups saying I have viruses.
Oh well, good thing I'm getting it cleaned.
Thanks for the heads up!

I wonder if it will handle the stuff cwshredder was handling??
cuz the cwshredder guy siad he was gonna call it quits due to time contraints and also that there were worse variants of CW stuff out there that cw shredder couldnt clean at present."Even a fool is thought to be wise if he is silent"

Well there is the crazy idea that we could treat companies using adware/spyware/malware like all those people writing viruses and prosecute them.

Scanning for spyware is like cleaning your ears, you are doing it to serve a purpose but you still get pissy if your Q-tip comes out clean.

Only found tracking cookies here too.
Probably because I am using various type of anti-spyware programs.

Thanks im downloading right now

Got it. Is it my imagination or does this scan a lot faster than previous versions?
August 9th, 2004, 10:47 PM #15
It scanned at least twice as slow as the old version for me.
August 9th, 2004, 10:51 PM #16
Scans slower for me too.
Mainly because this version scans around 80,000 objects.
Previous version scanned around 50,000. Faster? Not for me at least.

You had more than 350 malicious content in your computer and you didnt notice it?
Wow, I would personally use more additional programs than just Spybot & Ad-Aware.
