Is Ad-aware not free anymore?

Postby Ghen » Thu Jan 13, 2005 6:23 am

Usually I don't need to run the program, but someone (my stepmom) downloaded some 'free' screensavers and now I need it ;) I have Ad-aware 6 and it didn't find any updates which is odd.. so I looked online to see if there's a new version.. but none seem to be free.

I haven't run it in so long (Firefox doesn't allow any spyware or adware :mrgreen: ) that I'm not sure. I'll check it out when I get home.

What put me off is at each download site they add the 'click here to buy' link..

Well that's because you have to, not because it's your choice
