Default Adware

What is the best program for searching and removeing adware? I have Ad- Aware and it worked for me for about a year now it just doesn't seem to find everything. I would like to find another good free one but it doesn't matter. thanks. aberg

First of all, make sure that your Ad-Aware is updated. Secondly, download and install Spybot Search & Destroy. Runnng both of these will rid yourself of annoying ad-ware.

Yea, it's always good to have more than one spyware searching application running back-to-back.
Spybot S&D and adaware are a good combination. Also, make sure that the Adaware updates are kept up to date. Currently, Adaware's latest information file is Feb. 9, 2004.
