And this time, we give you two very important and exciting changes!


A columnist at the News and Observer recently wrote an article called “How To Safely Clear Your Computer of Spyware” and referred readers to Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware software.

Attention Ad-Aware users: we have news for you! We’re going to be rolling out two exciting new changes in the upcoming July Ad-Aware release –

1. Anti-virus is soon to be included in Ad-Aware Free

2. An all-new Ad-Aware product is on the way
