So - is it any good? Or should we wait a few weeks until all the glitches are sorted out?

I have installed the new version and have run it once without any problems. Be aware, however, that the "free" download is quite large and includes, apparently, many modules that must be paid for to operate.

Note: Ad-Aware 2007 is not Vista ready. All valid licenses will be upgraded to the Vista compatible version for free upon release.

2007 uninstalls old version automatically and the old add-ons are not compatible with this new edition.
The add-ons for SE are not needed in the 2007 version (have been built into the new version program).

Is there a BC "recommended settings" post that could be used for the new Ad-Aware 2007 Free?

Not yet, 1Bart. Once we get time to review and test the new features, I suspect we will provide a Tutorial for the new version. For the moment, the default settings seem sensible.

The time involved in testing and then writing a Tutorial is determined by the complexity of the application (or in this case, the new features and user interface), the availability of documentation, the relative importance of such a project, and the time and people available to do the actual work.
BC's tutorials are very well-respected, so we would want to provide the best possible for the new version.

John

Just a note:

I have found no incompatibilities between the latest versions of Ad-Aware and Vista 32-bit, except that the GUI is not compatible with Aero. To run Ad-Aware on Vista, right-click the shortcut, choose the Compatibility tab, and disable desktop composition (or you could simply switch to a different theme). Ad-Aware will run perfectly and the GUI will automatically change to Vista Basic when you start it. It changes back when the program is closed.

I downloaded it and tried to run it on Vista and it didn't work for me, it kept crashing halfway through the scan. I downloaded it assuming it would be Vista compatible as the last version was.
