  1. OK I have manually updated to v. But now "Block dangerous sites" is greyed out (see attachment). Why? I have enabled some "malware domains" filters under "3rd Party Filters", but I think "Block dangerous sites" uses Ad-aware own blacklist, so it should add an extra layer of security
  2. I'm still experiencing late updates... for example, on April 13th the new version was released, but I sitll have the v. even if I force the update on "chrome://extensions" (by enabling the "developer mode"), it doesn't update
  3. OK, I got the auto update from v1.6.0.26 to v1.6.1.1
  4. I don't know if it's an issue or an intended behavior, but ad-aware adblock didn't update automatically from v1.5.0.40 to v1.5.1.65 and from v1.5.1.65 to v1.6.0.26. I had to uninstall the Chrome extension and re-install it, thus losing my settings
  5. Good, the "my filters" issue has been fixed with version v1.5.1.65
  6. OK, I have tried the new version for a while. The "3rd-party filters" works good The "my filters" doesn't work as expected. If you right-click on an advertisement and select "block element", it adds the filter to the list, but you can't make "my filters" work together with the "3rd-party filters" (if you check "Enable my filters", all the "3rd-party filters" will be automatically unchecked)
  7. I've just checked the new version and I've seen that my suggestions have been implemented Thanks a lot
  8. Everything can be bypassed, the point is, how easy (or how difficult) it is to bypass For example, Comodo Firewall at default settings is not bulletproof. But if you tune the settings, then it can give you nearly 100% protection. Ad-Aware FREE offers a great detection rate, but in my opinion is not enough to protect against 0-day malware because it lacks of advanced techniques (such as AVC, which is a kind of behavior blocker)
  9. Comodo Firewall can stop (actually, it can sandbox) any unknown file, including ransomware. The downside is that it can also prevent a legitimate program to run, that's why it's better to couple it with a traditional AV with high detection rate
  10. Check these two videos and you'll see why you need another security solution Ad-Aware 11 Free VS. ransomware Difference between traditional AV and Comodo Firewall VS. ransomware
  11. OK, thanks for the answer. So, the FREE version of Ad-Aware won't offer any advanced anti-threat technicque, just malware detection (the same of Avira, for example)... If so, Ad-Aware FREE must be coupled with another security solution, such as Comodo Firewall
  12. No, AVC is a part of real-time protection, but on Ad-Aware 11 was available only for PRO (and up) version
  13. "Active Virus Control" will be available on the Free version?
  14. I really like ad-aware ad block, it's much faster in loading pages than other ad-blockers. I just would like to see two more features: 1) An option to manually add something you want to block (in ublock origin there is a "pick" feature) 2) An option to see all the user-added active subscriptions and manage them (add, remove, disable, enable) Thanks
