Be sure up to update your AdAware!

I just updated to the latest version, ran a scan, and it found the nasty HuntBar, which drives me nuts, since the old AdAware didn't do a good job at removing the little scum. My computer is faster and running much better now too.

Its free, and fast to download. So be sure to update yours or download it if you haven't already. *Just 1.6 MB*

Wow, that sucks. The one I had was a stupid add that would pop up automatically when I sign on the web. I?m not going to get into details but I?ll just say it involved animals.

adaware personal is the best freeware program i've run into in a long time. stable, free, updated regularly, plenty of configuration options, and it does what it claims to do.

This just a slight update, released on July 14th. If you download before that, you might want to update to this.

Did anyone came accross HuntBar as well? TrafficSyndicated is responsible for that.

And make sure when its done scanning, anything other than cookies come up should be removed by checking the box on the left and click next to finished, since some people may not know that you have to select what to removed.

Either you copied that or you?re a phone sales man.

Now that we got that cleared, could you explain how it work like you would to someone whos computer knowledge ends to the fact that pretty lights will go on when you press that round button?

Its just like any other application. Download, install, run it, and you're all set. Just about every Internet surfer, you will get these unwanted trash leeched on your system. The easiest and best way to removed it is to run Adaware.
