Fellow Readers
I used AdAware SE for some time and was very pleased with the performance
I updated to AdAware 2007 and found it was nowhere as good as SE.
What really concerns me is that it only updates once a week whereas AVG AntiSpy updates daily.
I have noted,with interest,the comments on this forum.
I feel i should convert to AVG
Any further comments would be appreciated

In my opinion, SuperAntiSpyware is better than both of them. Having said that, I have all three installed on my machine (although I stuck with AdAware SE rather than upgrading to 2007).
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

I have ceased to recommend my old favourite, Ad-Aware, since the new version was released, and have switched to AVG AS.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
