Copied from a post by Powerless, may explain why the new version is working better.


With the ability to scan your RAM, registry, hard drives, and external storage devices for known data-mining, advertising, and tracking components, Ad-aware SE easily can clean your system, allowing you to maintain a higher degree of privacy while you surf the Web.

Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition boasts a number of improvements. Extended memory scanning now scans all modules loaded by a process. Scanning uses the all- new CSI (Code Sequence Identification) technology to identify new and unknown variants of known targets. Extended registry scanning now scans registry branches of multiple-user accounts and performs additional smart checks to detect dynamically created references.

Scanning speed is noticeably faster, and this version offers an Extended Scanning mode for known and unknown/possible browser hijackers. Extended Disk scanning now scans and lists alternate data streams on NTFS volumes. Ad-Aware SE supports the scanning of cabinet files (including spanned archives) and now uses a much smaller definitions file.

The improved graphical UI supports customized skins and offers a more user-friendly method for viewing plug-ins and extensions. The new Scan Results view includes a scan summary and detailed view. Ad-Aware SE now links to the online TAC database.

New tweak options include the ability to unload process modules during a scan, obtain a command line of scanned processes, and ignore spanned cabinet files.

The permanent, archive-caching feature always attempts to unload modules before deletion. Log-file improvements include support for separate removal of log files and the ability to add a reference summary/index. In general, Ad-aware SE's log file contains more detailed information.

I think I may have realised why my scan with the new version still showed no new objects, as mentioned in the other thread. I performed a smart scan instead of a full system. So will give it another go tonight.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
