  1. Ad-watch has identified and removed the same two tracking cookies over 700 times today: FF: urlad--doubleclick--net.rtrk.com FF: haynet.adbureau.net Have scanned with Ad-aware 2007 and it doesn't identify these cookies. Same with Spybot S&D, Spyware Blaster and a squared free. I've blocked the doubleclick, rtrk and adbureau sites in both IE7 and Firefox, with no success. Something keeps loading these two cookies. Any ideas? Thanks! UPDATE: As a last resort I restarted the computer; Ad-watch removed these two tracking cookies one time and they appear to be gone for good. I have no idea how that worked but the problem seems to be solved.
  2. I was originally very skeptical about the whole change from SE to 2007. After finally getting my registration updated (and extended!) I decided to install Ad-Aware 2007. So far it has worked as advertised, including running Ad-Watch at Windows start-up. The only glitch is I can't get the Ad-Watch "connect" feature to work but that's a small thing at this point. Overall I've had a much better experience than I'd expected and Ad-Aware 2007 finds things on the computer other programs don't. FYI, I'm running Win XP SP2, Windows Defender, Windows Firewall, AVG Free 7.5, a squared free, Spyware Blaster and Spybot S&D; Ad-Aware seems to work fine with all of them.
  3. I agree! Lavasoft seemed to have Ad Aware SE all sorted out until the recent Ad Watch disaster (I haven't used Ad Watch since it wiped out all the desktop icons and links.) Their handling of the whole Ad Aware 2007 launch is another disaster, IMO. The product obviously wasn't ready for prime time and is causing major meltdowns of customers' computers. The initial delay in allowing current license holders to upgrade to the 2007 version turns out to be a good thing - it's kept me from installing the 2007 version and possibly losing my computer. At this point I'll continue with SE Plus until the license expires - then that's it for Lavasoft. I'm currently using a combination on Windows Defender, Spybot S&D, Spyware Blaster and EMSI's a-squared free that all work pretty well to clean the system without shutting it down. Would I like to continue with Lavasoft products? Yes, but I won't take the chance on them damaging my computer and forcing hours of work to get it functional again.
