Ad-Aware 2008 Plus paid subscription ending

in 3 days and I do not intend to renew it. Will the PAID version automatically revert to the FREE version or do I have to uninstall it and then install the FREE one? I tried to get the answer from the Lavasoft Forum, but I'm having all kinds of problems registering to get access to their forum.

I can't help you with Ad-Aware. I removed Ad-Aware some time ago and replaced it with SUPERAntiSpyware Pro (the paid version, with realtime protection) I like it much better. I also installed the on demand Free Version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. They both scan very fast, and are both very good.

(NT) I'm sure it ended already Harv. AFAIK, it will become free

You're right, Donna.

When the registration expired, I was given a choice between re-subscribing or the free version---I decided to go with the free version. Wink

Good decision Harv!

Thanks for the confirmation that it will become free.
