Can someone please tell me another free download that does the same as Lavasoft Ad-Aware 2007 Free.
Since i have downloaded updates for Lavasoft Ad-Aware 2007 Free my antivirus tells me i am infected.
Have uninstalled and installed again but still tells me i am infected.
So i have removed Lavasoft Ad-Aware 2007 Free.
THANKS.

Where did you download it from? I only download programs from their source, in the case of AdAware you download it from here click here which takes you to Cnet Download.com and I can assure you no viruses have come from there, if thats how you did it then the virus has come from elsewhere and you'd better see what else is going on.

Regardless, other programs you can try include a squared, AVG antispyware, Spybot, Superantispyware to name a just a few.

I don't understand the logic behind your request.

If your system is, perhaps, infected, a different choice of anti-spyware won't magically make it disappear.

Try running your AV and seeing if it comes up with any problems.

it could also be a false positive aswell as a coincidence,check your av forums for further info
