New Faster, Leaner Version of Ad-Aware Available

by Lina on August 29th, 2011 in Support, Lavasoft Products.

At Lavasoft, we strive to continuously improve the level of protection we bring to you and our community, to ensure that you have all the tools you need to stay safe online. This past year, we have listened long and hard to all the feedback we have received, including user comments and reviews, to try to understand how we can continue to improve our products. And while you, and the rest of our community, appreciate the level of protection Ad-Aware provides – both the size of the download and the scan speed have been common complaints. To address these concerns, we have decided to release a new version of Ad-Aware immediately – instead of waiting for the next big launch.

We are proud to release Ad-Aware 9.5, which offers a significant increase in performance.   Internal testing suggests that it is 4-8X faster than our previous version.  It also includes a completely new malware detection method – taking our legendary spyware removal to a completely new level – which will make it one of the most efficient engines at fighting zero-day malware. 

This past winter, we released Ad-Aware 9 which reduced the size of the installer from 130MB to less than 12Mb – with a silent download portion that totaled less than 80Mb total.

And more improvements, including better scan speeds, lower memory footprint, and new features are on the way. Stay tuned for more details on the upcoming release of Ad-Aware 10.
