Many of you have written to us curious about Lavasoft’s new product, Ad-Aware 2007. We must first direct your attention to our fresh, new icon. Pretty nice, eh? You will see this on all Ad-Aware 2007 products and packaging.
Now to your questions. No, Ad-Aware 2007 is not yet available. We are currently in a VIP beta testing phase and will enter a public beta shortly. Our developers will then make any last-minute corrections required before we issue a commercial release.
All of you who purchased Ad-Aware SE recently, and those who still have a valid license, will be eligible to upgrade to Ad-Aware 2007 for FREE. And yes, we are compatible with Window’s new operating system Vista. We are also aiming for Vista Certification, the highest level offered.
