  1. Back in July the post http://www.lavasofts...post__p__137027 by LS Andy, stated: "However, we've been paying close attention to the suggestions and comments on the forum and elsewhere. It's clear that a LOT of people want to run Ad-Aware as a second line of defense alongside their main antivirus. We are currently investigating what it will take for us to build a version of Ad-Aware that will run as an on demand scanner that compliments rather than looks to replace your "first line of defense" like Norton etc. It's in the early stages right now, so we are nowhere near discussing a release date but I can tell you that the application is being scoped out. A percentage of Ad-Aware users have spoken and we're going to provide a version of Ad-Aware that they asked for. You can expect to see a version of Ad-Aware that will complement another vendor's anti-virus product in the not too distant future." I am wondering how this is progressing or if it will never be (now that it is October). Thanks, Mark

[/quote] I agree. As-Aware did one thing really good. I don't want to get rid of my McAfee as it works the best for me. I wish you would make it during installation that you can choose not to install the anti-virus part & only install the Regualr Ad-Aware spyware removal part. WIth this new release, I have gone back to version 9.6 and if you don't change it soon, I will no longer be using or recommending your product. Sorry!

Apparently you just have to let it run its course - there have been reports here of updates taking 30-45 minutes to finish.[/quote] I have installed in on 2 computers running XP Pro & it has been over an hour and a half on both and its still at 174 updates. THis really poorly designed software. I wish I knoew what to do. Maybe I should remove it & uninstall it. I wish I didn't uninstall the previous version. I just wanted the computers up to date!
