hi all, i was just wondering i heard about Ad-Aware is not making new updates for version 6? is this true? and also, is there another newer version of it or any other spyware remover program that i can use?

Not true.

Try running Spybot as well click here

I think you may be getting mixed up with Updating the programme code, as opossed to still issuing new adware recognition files (similar to virus databases) :-)

nope im sure its says Update button. is it ok to run 2 spyware programes? is Spybot any good?

click here for 'spybot'
click here
for 'spyblaster' stops spyware etc loading in the first place.All 'three' work together fine.

when i ran spybot it found some ms updates in the registry and thought they were spyware, so i don't use it, i use adaware and spyware blaster and have no problems with spyware

but its upto the user to delete the items that the programs find, but that did put me off spybot

I came across this not too long ago. Go to the Lavasoft web site and download version 6.181
It seems that when a new version is released they stop supporting the older version but do not tell you when you try to update the older version.

Yes OK to run two I have adware and spybot running

Spybot is great, but it's a little more complex and less easy to use than Ad Aware.

yea spybot i just tried, it seemed a bit iffy and crap built, so i unistalled it now, im gonna try the other 2 or spyblaster as it seems to work good

and one thing, Spybot seems to crash when i dload the updates, anyone with the same problem? (that was actully the reason why i uninstalled it)
