  1. @CeceliaB Thanks for your [haste] reply to my topic. There are simply and most importantly two main issues with the most current versions of Ad-Aware in which I really would suggest (as well as heavily advise and need myself) fixed. The third issue is a list of security programs I recommend running along Ad-Aware, as over the past 5+ years have saved much progress, development, memories, crashes, and fixed many exploits etc. 1.) Ad-Aware integration into today's web browsers would be awesome. I know that Ad-Aware offers realtime protection but the areas of concern are more IN-real-time protection, especially while surfing the web as that's where all of today's threats are coming from. Some type of add-on or plugin for today's most used and most popular web browsers would be of great use as well as really boost Ad-Aware's performance [and honestly, it's customer-base/sales as a business owner myself]. INTEGRATION WITHIN WEB BROWSERS IS MOST ESSENTIAL ESPECIALLY IN REGARDS TO MALICIOUS ACTIVITY, POP-UP ADS, FLASH, JAVA, JAVASCRIPT, AND OTHER SCRIPTING AS WELL AS SOME SITES THAT POP-UP DOWNLOADS THAT AUTOMATICALLY START DOWNLOADING TO YOUR PC. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT A PLUGIN MODULE FOR WEB BROWSERS WOULD NOT CONFLICT WITH ANY OTHER PLUGINS/MODULES, ESPECIALLY IN ACCORDANCE TO MY SIGNATURE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST. Now following with the above suggestion/statement, the Ad-Aware add-on/plugin module for the following web browsers would HAVE to stay up-to-date alongside the web browsers: Google Chrome Maxthon Opera Safari FireFox Internet Explorer Avant *** OPTIONAL (as of this time, I am still looking into using this web browser, though it promises to be most lightweight and resource-free) The list of web browsers above are listed in terms of their own security, ease of use for web surfers, ease of customization for developers, speed, popularity, and community support. Between Google Chrome and Maxthon, it's VERY hard to distinguish which web browser to put first so I just put Google Chrome first since more people are probably familiar with it, but Maxthon's user and developer base has been heavily growing and I honestly suggest trying out Maxthon and even so far as setting it as your default web browser (there are two versions of the web browser, one in which is stand-alone and another in which makes use of the cloud, basically allowing you to access sites or favorites just by logging into your Maxthon Passport. * Maxthon is also much safer. Google tracks everything that we do. I especially hate being read my emails and having ads everywhere. Google's services are great, but their security is becoming a problem. There are times when all-in-one products are a good thing, but look at history, they fail. Stand-alone products and software is the best solution, however let's limit the solution's dilemma in the number of products and software by cooperation and choosing reliable, reputable, and secure products, software, and services for your needs. That doesn't mean you shouldn't/can't use Google for a number of services, just don't rely on such a company for all of your services/needs. It's INSECURE. ie: Use Outlook.com (or ymail.com which is by Yahoo) for email, SkyDrive for documents/presentations/spreadsheets/etc, and Bing for search, all of which are developed and maintained by Microsoft. Then you can use Google Voice, Hangout, or whatever services you want from them. And then have your web browser, all listed above which are open source of course (hint: try Maxthon), you can have your physically-installed software such as OpenOffice, as well as any other software or apps you need - including security software in which I dream one day, a dedicated network to the sharing of spyware, malware, trojans, viruses, and threats that all security software, its users, security experts, etc can add to and use in software updates - and of course your operating system. 64-bit is where it's at, and personally I like Windows 7 64-bit the best and most so far. 2.) Since Lavasoft has went so far to add an anti-virus engine into its system, please have the option for a stand-alone version of just Ad-Aware. This is why I am still using the 9.x series. I still get updates. It would be easy, from what I see, as the Ad-Aware has its own database for updates and checks and so does the anti-virus, its own database in which its engine checks and updates. Please, please do this for people like me and corporations. This has been holding me back as well as many business owners from making a purchase due to the combined version, and a lot of big/bigger companies like to have dedicated stand-alone products too. ie: McAfee just for their anti-virus, etc. And spyware and viruses Cecelia have NOT become one in the same but are constantly evolving. Speaking of McAfee, they do actually make a good anti-virus program with firewall but it does not detect what Ad-Aware detects and vice-versa, proving the need of stand-alone products. Who knows if its firewall is even as effective as stand-alone firewall companies/organizations, such as ZoneAlarm, in which I personally use as my firewall; THOUGH even ZoneAlarm has a combined package now, firewall with anti-virus. As stated above, it's more secure and safer to use separate, dedicated software/products by dedicated organizations/companies. Ad-Aware, dedicated to adware. ZoneAlarm, dedicated to firewall. Etc. 3.) In regards to a dedicated network to share security database, it could be its own cloud, but a secure cloud, only accessible by trusted organizations and companies working together to build a database, such as and maybe starting with those recommended in my signature below. --- Signature --- Essential Security Software for Windows: SpyBot Search & Destroy | Lavasoft Ad-Aware 9.x | Spyware Terminator 2012 | SpywareBlaster Free, Most Effective Firewalls with AntiVirus: ZoneAlarm w/AntiVirus | LavaSoft Ad-Aware w/AntiVirus We need to start using sites and databases that share blacklisted sites and programs for the security of ALL.
  2. I as many thousands of others including personal and business users, both free and potential customers, would like a stand-alone Ad-Aware. That is #1 priority. Below is more suggestions for you to take into serious consideration and implement, please. Hello, Please add support to your wonderful product of Lavasoft Ad-Aware support for protection against spyware within all web browsers including a new wonderful and evolving web browser called Maxthon, in which its site is located at http://www.maxthon.com - the browser is also making use of its own [virtual] Cloud, allowing users to never lose track of their information or websites they've visited so long as they have a Maxthon Passport. I am a web developer myself as well as a "tech junkie" since 2000. I have been using Maxthon for years and this program is perfectly harmless and actually one of - if not THE BEST - web browser I have ever used. There are so many features and settings that you can adjust as well and it's perfect for developers and regular web surfers alike. Please, also update Lavasoft Ad-Aware. If possible as well, maybe it can share databases with safer-networking.org and other databases that are constantly and freely updated in which you can find online with the simple search of Bing or Google. There are also sites in which list known bad sites including advertisement publishing companies and companies that advertise pop-ups that automatically play Flash, Java, and deliver Spyware as well as automatically download things. I am trying to avoid using Google from now on as well in which is why I mentioned Bing as the first search engine above. Bing has really improved and doesn't collect information like Google does nor peak inside or advertise in every aspect of your life. Like Microsoft's Live.com is amazing as well as Outlook.com and SkyDrive.com where you can email with no ads and no privacy concerns as well as SkyDrive, where they offer what Google similarly offers but with privacy in mind and their web-based applications are a LOT more elite. They actually have Microsoft Word that you can use in your browser - you'll never have to buy another Microsoft software product again, really, unless it's Windows in which typically comes pre-installed with most PCs. Spread the word about Microsoft, Bing, Live, Outlook, SkyDrive, and its services, especially in terms of usefulness and better privacy protection whereas Google has failed and reads our emails. I would also love for it to be an all in one, to detect Spyware, Malware, Adware, Trojans, Viruses, and so on. As stated above, there are sites with such databases that are constantly updated that you can use. Please look into it. It would also be a nice feature for it to actually work inside the browser to avoid spyware from being exposed to any PC for that matter, securing people browsing the web while they're browsing the web or idle, especially from annoying advertisements and pop-up ads. Please consider this and definitely change the name to Lavasoft Ad-Aware, without the version number - it can be in the program when you open it and when you check for updates and when you click on About - keep it up to date, and add support for Maxthon. I hope that all my suggestions can really be of use. * Furthermore, please extend LavaSoft-AdAware 10.x series, the series that was standalone without anti-virus. We all need it, including the business and corporate world. --- Signature --- Essential Security Software for Windows: SpyBot Search & Destroy | Lavasoft Ad-Aware 9.x | Spyware Terminator 2012 | SpywareBlaster Free, Most Effective Firewalls with AntiVirus: ZoneAlarm w/AntiVirus | LavaSoft Ad-Aware w/AntiVirus We need to start using sites and databases that share blacklisted sites and programs for the security of ALL.

  4. Like many, I already have an anti-virus program. I can't conflict it with Ad-Aware with anti-virus. How, or is there even away to get just Ad-Aware without anti-virus? If not, please make it available. Should be simple really. Update 9 and share the database of 10 and then 11 series. --- Signature --- Essential Security Software for Windows: SpyBot Search & Destroy | Lavasoft Ad-Aware 9.x | Spyware Terminator 2012 | SpywareBlaster Free, Most Effective Firewalls with AntiVirus: ZoneAlarm w/AntiVirus | LavaSoft Ad-Aware w/AntiVirus We need to start using sites and databases that share blacklisted sites and programs for the security of ALL.
  5. I like many already have anti-virus. 10 isn't an option. Please bring back the 9.x series and keep it updated with the 10.x series database or a 10.x series stand-alone Ad-Aware product, please. --- Signature --- Essential Security Software for Windows: SpyBot Search & Destroy | Lavasoft Ad-Aware 9.x | Spyware Terminator 2012 | SpywareBlaster Free, Most Effective Firewalls with AntiVirus: ZoneAlarm w/AntiVirus | LavaSoft Ad-Aware w/AntiVirus We need to start using sites and databases that share blacklisted sites and programs for the security of ALL.
