Don’t use Ad-Aware

Many of you will (hopefully) be using Lavasoft Ad-Aware to remove spyware from your computer. Well, you may wish to change. have published a newsletter article encouraging people to switch to a different utility, due to the arrogant attitudes of Lavasoft staff, the fact that no updates have been made in over 3 months and that the next version is nearly a month late.
The article does offer alternatives, including the free Spybot S&D, which is what I’m about to start using. An update for this was only released a few days ago, so it’s still current.
