As our select group of registered beta testers know, in preparation of the next major Ad-Aware release on August 25, 2009, closed beta testing for the new version is now underway. We’re looking forward to working with our seasoned group of testers to help us fine-tune this new version and make sure it’s everything that you need and want it to be.
