Excellant. I was just wondering the other day what happened to the Ad-aware updates. I've used Spybot for a while now, yesterday I noticed I picked up Cdilla, (didn't install any new software, don't download any music- it just appeared out of nowhere) and was trying to find out how to remove it. That cleared up some of my questions.

Well, BPS seemed similar to adaware.. cost ~$30, and disconnected the internet. As it is right now, using system restore (xp) on this PC got it to connect through IE, but that's it.

AdAware 6.0 is now floating around a major p2p

Does anyone have any faith in it?

I gave it a test run on a n00b's PC that was previously cleaned with the freeware; spybot. It took ~5x as long and didn't find a thing.
