AdAware 11 Beta is ready!

by Andy on July 16th, 2013 in Beta Testing.

The first beta for the new version of AdAware 11 is now available! We're counting on you to give us your feedback, iron out the kinks and help us to create the best product possible.

We are looking for both experienced AdAware users and newbies who may be seeing the product for the first time. We're limiting the amount of beta testers for the initial test period so if you don't get to test AdAware 11 straight away, you'll get a chance soon.


Voting has kicked off in Lavasoft’s first ever Skin Design Contest. Vote now for your favorite skin to help choose the final design that will be featured in the release of the new version of Ad-Aware!

And for all of you designers and artists out there – skin design submissions will be open until August 20. Those taking part in our closed beta testing can log-in to MyLavasoft now for more details on how to create and submit your design.


We have another update for all of you beta testers and users alike who are interested in learning more about how to get involved in our new community-driven initiatives that go hand in hand with the upcoming Ad-Aware release –


As our select group of registered beta testers know, in preparation of the next major Ad-Aware release on August 25, 2009, closed beta testing for the new version is now underway. We’re looking forward to working with our seasoned group of testers to help us fine-tune this new version and make sure it’s everything that you need and want it to be.


Beta 3 - Now Available

by Jeffery on December 8th, 2008 in Beta Testing.

Calling all beta testers - the third stage of our Beta testing process is now underway!

With Beta 1 and 2, we focused initially on testing the scanning process, then on real-time protection. Beta 3 is designed to test additional functionality of the real-time protection - including registry and network protection - as well as the startup manager feature.

To download Beta 3, please log in to the Beta Center.


Beta 2: Released

by Jeffery on November 24th, 2008 in Beta Testing.

It's time for the second stage of the Beta process - Beta 2 is now available. With our first incremental Beta release, the focus was primarily on the scanning process. We're now ready to shift the focus to the real-time protection feature, including process protection, and the tray app. To download Beta 2, please log in to the Beta Center.


A Word from Our Testers

by Jeffery on November 18th, 2008 in Beta Testing.

Spotted among the first impressions of the Ad-Aware Beta in our dedicated Beta Forum:

"Very nice!"

"...I really like how it tells more about a detected object after a scan."

"I love the new interface?"

"Wonderful-Far more aesthetically pleasing than prior versions-Was surprisingly fast.."


Our first beta for the new version of Ad-Aware is now available! Be among the first to test the more powerful and efficient Ad-Aware. We're counting on you to give us your feedback, iron out the kinks, and help us to create the best product possible.


The time is almost here again - beta time, that is! In just two weeks, we'll be asking our beta testers to again help us out in putting our upcoming new Ad-Aware product through its paces.

On November 10, we will release our first beta for the new version of Ad-Aware, due to be launched in January.
