    Lavasoft

    If there is anyone still using Lavasoft's Ad-Aware software, it might be them worth reading this article...

    I haven't used that app in ages, think it's way past it's prime anyway.
    Based on the article, I'd avoid any future use of it as well.

    Same here. Has been years since I used Lavasoft although they continue to send Spam my way.

    I used to use Ad-Aware in the days when it was good, but I ditched it when it became........problematic. Wouldn't touch it with a 10-foot pole now, especially after reading that article. Thanks for posting it!
