Ad-aware/No Adware

  harveyt 12:28 30 Oct 2004

I have both programs installed on PC. I usually run Ad-aware everyday and it cleans all tracking cookies etc no problem. No Adware is unregistered and only identifies and does not clean.
When I ran Ad-aware this morning it identified No Adware as high risk malware!!!!

I'm going to remove No Adware as it doesn't clean anything, but is there a problem with Ad-aware?

Ad-aware is good.

click here and scroll down to Adware Hitman.

I use Ad-aware too. Is Adware Hitman better?

"Is Adware Hitman better?" - NOooo, quite the reverse. Avoid at all costs!

Right I see now that I've clicked on the link. There seems to be worse products than Adware Hitman though.
I'll stick with Ad-aware.

OK, thanks I see Noadware on the list of Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products. I will continue with Ad-aware.
If you read the review page there are some people making harsh reviews of Ad-aware, (I would post link but don't know how) I suppose they maybe pushing their own products.

I think these free scanners are just to find spyware etc. and then they hope you'll buy it to remove them.I think sometimes they find things that aren't really there.
