Ad-Aware SE Replacement

Recommended Posts

Hello All,


As you are aware Ad-Aware SE is unsupported and now the definition files are now longer being offered. See Lavasoft's topic here: http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?showtopic=24508


This applies to all versions of Ad-Aware SE.


If your computer is able to support Lavasoft's new version of Ad-Aware (AE) then you should run an update to that version as outlined in the above topic. However, some of you may have computers which are unable to run this new version (unsupported Operating Systems or you do not meet the hardware requirements).


If this is the case, on a personal note (not an official LS recommendation) the only solutions are to Install a new supported OS, update your hardware components or install another vendor's security software. The first two options can be expensive and time consuming, so here are two other products which do support older OS:


SUPERAntiSpyware (Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, XP Home/Pro, 2003, and Vista)

Spybot S&D (Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, PE, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008 and Mobile 5.0 and Linux/Unix via WINE)


I hope this helps you :)
