[b]Software Update 8.1.3[/b]
Released December 17, 2009

This update won't have noticeable effect to the program as almost all the changes this time are back end fixes so Ad-Aware users should not notice any differences. However there might be some decreases on the GUI launch time.

[quote]The latest version of Ad-Aware is 8.1.3. To check which version you are using click the 'About' button at the bottom right. In the window that opens you can see the version number just below Ad-Aware. If you are using an older version just click 'web-update' to download and update to the latest version.

The main fix in this latest version is a decrease in the GUI launch time.[/quote] Edited by visitor

[b]Software Update 8.2.1[/b]
Released March 18, 2010

Ad-Aware 8.2.1 change log:

[url="http://lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/support/blog/821-update-to-adaware"]http://lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/support/blo...date-to-adaware[/url]

* Improved whitelisting for Ad-Watch.

In cases where Ad-Watch detectes files or processes as being suspicious, but users want to run the software anyway, Ad-Watch now has improved whitelisting capabilities, allowing these users to make exceptions for these programs.

* Ad-Watch Files turns itself off when incompatible software is found.

Incompatibilities between the Ad-Watch Files module, introduced in 8.2, and similar functionailty in other security software has caused some systems to freeze up.
This functionality looks for incompatible software and deactivates the Ad-Watch Files module if it detects any on the user´s computer.

[url="http://lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/support/blog/822-update-to-adaware"]http://lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/support/blo...date-to-adaware[/url]

* Ad-Watch Modules Stay Turned Off

The issue where Ad-Watch modules would re-enable themselves automatically has now been resolved.
