Please Bring Back 9.x Series or at least stand-alone Ad-Aware

Recommended Posts

I like many already have anti-virus. 10 isn't an option. Please bring back the 9.x series and keep it updated with the 10.x series database or a 10.x series stand-alone Ad-Aware product, please.

Hi,

 

Nowadays antivirus, anti-spyware and anti-malware programs can't be distinguished. All so called antivirus programs discovers spyware and other types of malware, and all so called anti-malware programs discovers files that traditionally were discovered by antivirus programs. To be able to delete todays infections that goes deep into Windows, it's necessary for antivirus and anti-malware programs to have drivers on a low level. If two such drivers are installed, there is a chance that they will crash and cause conflicts in the computer, that's the reason why Ad-Aware 10 and 11 shouldn't be running together with another antivirus program, not the type of signatures that are used. Ad-Aware 9 engine isn't good enough to fight against modern malware.

 

But when another antivirus program is installed, it's possible to install Ad-Aware 10 and 11 in compatible mode to be used as an on-demand scanner (incl. scheduled scans).
