from public opinion. There are other and better free programs available. Me? I was a proponent for years of AdAware. Then, looking at reviews, performance, ease of updates, I moved on. I now use MalwareBytes and Super-AntiSpyware. And haven't missed AA at all.
In short, move on. Uninstall AA. Your choice on the replacement, but I really like what I am running now.
Can't unibstall old version to install new one...uninstall freezes and never completes, while the install says I have to uninstall first...also getting message that says a version is currently installing. This has been going on for weeks...
Am pretty techno-challenged, so any help spelled out in plain ENglish would be a blessing!
