Been reading up on the reviews on this. Most seem to say it's better than the 07 version, but still not quite what it (Ad Aware) used to be. Looking for input from users of this product, comments on it's performance, etc. I mainly use Super Antispyware, as well as AVG free antispyware, but would like to solicit opinions on it before downloading/installing it.....Thanks.

Hi I used to use Adaware 2008 as well, until I found out Superanti-spyware I quit using Ad-aware 2008. I suggust using Superantispyware. Also AVG free antispyware is a great anti-spyware program I used it too. I really liked it, however AVG anti-spyware stops updating anymore. I forgot what the last date is but if you want to use the AVG anti-spyware you will need to download AVG 8.0.
Hope that helps and good luck on deciding which program your going to choose.

Correction. AVG Anti Spyware continues to update as a stand alone product until the end of this year. I am currently looking for a replacement but it won't be Spybot or Ad Aware. I already have Super Anti Spyware.

Ad-aware & Spybot are WAY past it's prime.

SUPERAntispyware & Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware are the "new kids on the blocks" and are the best things going! They improve all the time.
