Ad Aware told me today I had twenty-five days to download the new version so I did it and a few seconds after it was done instead of the activated message in green it became red and it told me I was not protected, after trying downloading updates (it always told me it worked but the red message stayed there) a few times after that happened and another time later I decided to search for another anti-virus and anti-spywares in one and saw that this had a highest rating on Cnet so installed it and uninstalled Ad Aware. If it sucks or the thirty-one day limits means I have to pay I will install Ad Aware again.
Normally when I have any problems with my security programs I immediately uninstall and reinstall; I hope doing this and this new program won't give my computer any issues.
Turns out this is only free to try. It is free for a month then you have to pay. I did more research on anti-viruses and anti-spywares and saw a few others that I haven't tried yet and that also have good reviews, I may try one or just go back with Ad Aware. It is a shame that this is not really free because it is good, my computer is well protected plus it is easy to use but I never paid for computer protection and never will either.
I uninstalled it tonight after installing another free anti-virus and it was not easy. The anti-virus itself was super slow to uninstall then after the restart I found another of their program and that was even harder to get rid of.
I still say it is easy to use but I never felt safe with this thing despite Windows loving it.
