Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have updated the Ad aware 2007 free at the beginning of the year when Ad aware SE released-

Now there is a new version Ad aware 2008. I wanted to know what is the difference between the both FREE.And if every 6 months we have to update a new Ad aware version ?

Many thanks-

Topaze-
