Hello,

http://www.lavasoftusa.com/single/trialpay.php this will take you to a download page, I stopped using it recently, I decided it didn't fit my needs anymore, also I heard they are stopping support for the product.
Regards,

Alan.

Ever since Ad Aware 2007 was released last summer, there have been nothing but complaints and the experts here and elsewhere do not recommend it anymore. People still want to use it because they are comfortable with it and it was a good product several years ago. It's not a good product anymore. You're better off with Super Anti Spyware.

I have ceased using and recommending it. There are many very good (and very free) anti-spyware applications available. Look in the appropriate section here for some that our Members use:

I use it only once in a while. But have had no problems so far. Maybe I will try that other program SAS that evryone is recommending it. I currently use Spybot to check for any nasties that may get through to my computer. Now it,Ad-Aware 2007, has stopped working. So I do not know what is going on. I think I will change programs Now that I hear that Lavasoft is not supporting it.

Just to clarify, what Lavasoft isn't supporting is the previous version of Ad Aware SE. They still support the 2007 version but a lot of folks were using the old version because they don't like the new one.
