I see where Ad-Aware is now available for Vista, putting aside for the moment that there might be a few bugs, I've already got Spybot and Live OneCare, you think I need another spyware program?

Unfortunately, the "portability" of AdAware wasn't carried over into the new build. I've managed to workaround it tho - here's the steps:

1) Copy the AdAware2007 directory to your flash drive (Located in C:\Program Files\Lavasoft by default)
2) Right click on aawservice.exe and Run as Administrator.
3) Open up the Services applet and change the service to run as System (using Properties and the LogOn tab)
4) Stop and restart the service
5) Run the Ad-Aware2007.exe program to launch the application.

Now, all that being said, it's easier and quicker to just run the installer :huh:

Yes, I agree. Installing it is much faster. I have not run into any bugs with AA2k7, although you might be alarmed when, if updating it, it says it's not responding. That's nothing to worry about, as it will come back after a minute or two. It does that to me. Other than that, it seems to be working great on my Vista install (Home Prem 32-bit)
