Ad-Aware is one of the software tool you need if you want your system to be spyware and adware free. Lavasoft the company behind Ad-Aware has released the a new version Ad-Aware 2008 and is available for download. I first discovered this gem with Google Pack in its early days it is called Ad-Aware SE, but now Google Pack doesn’t include this.
Ad-Aware will protect you from spyware, keyloggers, trojans and other identity theft software.
What’s New in 2008
- Improved Threat Detection: Spyware, Adware, Trojans & Hijackers, Fraud Tools & Rogue Applications, Password Stealers & Keyloggers
- Enhanced Rootkit removal system
- Faster Updates & Faster Scans
- Less Resource Usage for optimal computer performance
- Easy to Download, Install and Use
- Lavasoft ThreatWork submission tool
- Compatible with Windows Vista (32- and 64-bit)
It is also available as a Pro version for a fee but the free version is equally good for home users. If you have previous version of Ad-Aware SE it will be uninstalled while installing Ad-Aware 2008. Download Ad-Aware, Source: Sizzled Core
