I was just wondering what skins others use for Ad-aware, so I thought I'd just post the question.
What skins do you use?

The ones I use most often are:
Viking
DragonFire
DARK
Blacklight
fruity-loops
Matrix
SMOKE2
ANTRAC

The one I'm using now is DragonFire.

This is a link to four basic skins, and the instructions on how to install them from the .zip file.
Ad-aware Skins - 4 Basic Skins & Installation Instructions

This is the link to a large selection of alternate skins.
This is where I get mine from.
Ad-aware Skins - Full Selection

This link takes you to the instructions for installing the skins from the site with the large selection.
Since these are not .zip files, the instructions are a little different.
Ad-Aware Skin Installation

If you want to give making your own skins a try, here's the link for the "how to".

You're welcome, Starbuck.
I just stumbled across them one day, and got to wondering if anybody else knew about, and used them.

That sure puts Malware/Adware scanning in a whole new light! I didn't know Ad-Aware or Spybot (Thanx Starbuck) had skins...Thanx tg1911 for the install info. I couldn't resist the Chipmunk skin,but also downloaded the JeepSkin 'cause I just bought myself a Liberty Diesel and the HotLava skin is pretty kool too.

You're welcome, TMacK.

To insert the image into a post, you need to use image (img) tags.
If you wanted to use that URL, it would look like this:

tg1911 ,I wanted to post a preview of a screenshot,such as you did,but no matter how many times I tried,I couldn't get photobucket to work for me!! I finally tried "generating html & img codes" and only got this thumbnail code to work. Kinda anti-climactic.....

Thanks for that linky, Starbuck!!! I've been having trouble locating Spybot skins! :thumbsup:

After browsing the Ad-Aware skins, and downloading several, here is the one I chose to use:
