“I would like to thank you. I have been using Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware for several years…I have and continue to value your support in not allowing my machine to become a "zombie" that becomes a risk to other computer users within Australia and globally. Along with other security capabilities, it forms an integral part of my personal defenses.”
