Why has the Plus version been changed to Pro?

Lavasoft has discontinued the Plus version of Ad-Aware.  If you hold a plus license you can upgrade from Ad-Aware Plus to the higher protection of Ad-Aware Pro free of charge.

The Pro version of Ad-Aware has all of the features found in Plus but also offers Ad-Watch Live! Expert, the Lavasoft Toolbox, advanced rootkit removal, Do Not Disturb Mode, and network drive scanning.

The Plus software will be upgraded to Pro when you run an Ad-Aware web-update.

If you are experiencing a problem upgrading your Plus version to Pro, you can download the latest installer for Ad-Aware from the Support Center from the 'My Downloads' section and use that to install the Pro version:
