Free Ad aware ? by Trebor

User avatar
I used to run both Spybot and Ad aware on both my pcs to compliment the internet security i have with McAfee, and then stopped just trusting McAfee to do the job, but as i believe it doesnt remove certain security risks that the other 2 programmes do then i want to start using them again.

No problem with Spybot, easy to find and download, but Ad aware appears to have transposed itself into a free Internet Security programme at around 86mb, which i dont want or need.

Does anyone know if the old Ad aware programme still exists to download or if not could somebody recommend a free and trusted programme to do the same ?

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Go for Microsoft Security Essentials. That is a good all in one package and what I recommend for people over the old AVG/SpyBot setup.

It is only now available as a whole package for download not as a stand alone product anymore I'm afraid.
A great shame for many.

Hi Trebor,

Put a link below it is free and I am told it is vary good also Webuser which is a computer magazine also recommends it.
Hope it will be of help to you.


Forgot to say, just download where it says download.That is the one without the Anti-virus.If you need a free antivirus just read down and that is also free.
