Purchased NOADWARE for my Toshiba laptop.


(http://www.noadware.net/?hop=advanced99)


Any comments on this company? When I did a scan on my laptop there was lots of stuff that didn't show up on the free AOL or the Norton that came with the computer.


NOADWARE seemed pretty simple to use for a novice like me.


thanks

Had you of asked before "purchasing", I would have told you that there are better products for free.
It was once listed as a rogue product by Spyware Warrior and has since been removed from that list.

NoAdware is an program that was previously listed as a rogue on the Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware List because of concerns with false positives and the use of aggressive, deceptive advertising. It has been been de-listed as a rogue because the vendor has taken some actions to correct these concerns. (scroll down and read the Note on this application). I am still skeptical and would only recommend a progam with a proven track record like Sunbelt's Counterspy or Webroot's Spysweeper.
