Ad Aware SE

Today I installed Ad Aware SE in a friend's computer; upgraded it, then ran
Scan. It found 200+ items, but never finished, finally locked up and we
were out of time as far as running it again. I can't be there soon to try
it again. Any advice I can send on to him for when he tries it by himself?

Have him use some other AntiSpyware applications before running AdAware SE
again.
Spybot Search and Destroy would be a good one.

Forget Adware Away as it listed as a rogue adware product producing false
negatives. Only ever use SpyBot S & D. You can download it from here:

Wake up, Crouchie. No one mentioned 'Adware Away' in this thread (nor in
any other thread in which you've posted this same information).

Yep..Agree with the users in favouring Adware...Atlease from my experience
with it i dont have any issues...infact i recommend using it with MS
AntiSpyware...Itsa very good combination I found..
