We have released a new version of Ad-Aware.
Significantly improved Proactive Detection
Ad-Aware 9.0 introduces Dedicated Detection, a new proactive detection technology that identifies malware on the instruction level and thereby creating incredibly effective signatures to detect entire families of malware.
Improved GUI for Scanning
We have created a new design for the Scan functionality, which provides a better overview and easier navigation of the scan results.
We have added a layer of protection to the Winlogon, an essential Windows component that handles user profiles and screen locks. If this component is compromised by malware, the user will effectively be locked out of his own machine.
We have added Windows startup settings to the areas in that the Ad-Watch Registry module protects.
TrackSweep has been updated to add support for Google Chrome, as well as the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera.
