Ad-Aware Back In The Game

Ad-Aware used to be to the go-to product to remove spyware back in the day, along with SpyBot - Search & Destroy. Both of them faded out of popularity as new products became available, and I was a little surprised to learn that Ad-Aware was actually still around. Apparently, after a bit of a wonky start with version 10.0, the latest version - now 10.5 - is available and performing well according to this article on PC Magazine. What's more, it's now a full-fledged antivirus solution as well, and there is a free version. Now I have not tried this on my computer yet, but I believe I will. When the article refers to problems installing other AV products - bear in mind the writer was trying to install on already infected systems (which can be tricky). It's nice to have choice, and this sounds like another good one.
