Ad-Aware SE Personal 106...

Is legitimate software that removes malware from your computer. There is no indication of slowing down my system... as a matter of fact I recommend it along with Spybot Search and Destroy to assist in keeping your system clean as possible. There are others to aid in this as well.

Hope this helps!

confused by your comments. What I can say is "Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06r1" is not rogue software... is free and safe to use if downloaded from Lavasoft.

Hope this helps.
