I have joined the beta testing team for Adaware 2007, since I believe this is a good exercise in going through the roots of a programm and see how it develops. I will use this thread in keeping you all posted on further development. The following features are there

Ad-Aware 2007 will include all of the functions that you've become familiar with through Ad-Aware SE, as well as a host of brand new and improved features. Below are many of the highlights you'll find in the Beta release.

Fully redesigned engine.
Ad-Aware 2007ís powerful, efficient engine increases your productivity by delivering one of the fastest scans on the market without clogging your computerís resources.

Advanced Code Sequence Identity technology.
Our improved CSI technology detects malware that is deeply imbedded in your system and keeps you protected from the latest threat advancements.

Enhanced Detection Database.
Incremental updates ensure a quick download from our comprehensive threat database, again freeing up your most valuable computer resources.

New graphical user interface (GUI).
The fresh, new look of our straightforward GUI means easy navigation through all of Ad-Aware 2007ís advanced protection options.

Automatic scans and Web updates.
Set a personalized schedule for automatic scans and definition file updates, letting Ad-Aware do the work for you according to your schedule and preferences. Youíll never miss an update from the Detection Database again.

Ad-Watch TrackSweep.
The new TrackSweep feature clears browser cache, cookies, and history that are left behind while you surf the Internet on IE, Firefox and Opera, all in one easy click of a button.

Ad-Watch Connect.
The real-time monitoring of Ad-Watch is expanded to include an additional shield against hijackers and identify theft by preventing private information from leaving your computer. (Note! Ad-Watch Connect is not implemented in this Beta release)

Hosts File Editor.
This new tool gives you the power to add, delete or make changes to the Hosts File to block advertisement sites, reverse browser hijack entries, create navigational shortcuts, and assist with parental controls.

Multiple Browser Support.
Ad-Aware 2007 supports Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera Ė so now you can use the web browser of your choice.

System Restore Point.
Ad-Aware 2007ís conveniently located system restore point means you never have to worry about accidentally deleting a file during cleanup.

Sofar there are still some glitches, but the GUI looks very cool and softtones much better thatn the last version, the MBS still has some problems but is worked on. A promising feature is the automated webupdate and automated scans which enables you to just leave it and everything goes by itself. Next week the final GUI will be reeady and I will be posting some shots.

Fozzie.
Just a thought.
Is the Beta version you are testing likely to be the free or paid for version?
Thanks.

I am also a Beta Tester for Ad-Aware 2007. The product is a good start, however there are a few things that need to be fixed.

Ad-Watch offers some confusing alerts and Ad-Aware 2007 uses to much CPU space

It is not Vista compatable yet because of a glitch we and the LS Team have found in the Vista version, when a Vista version is available, you will be able to download it.
