I and my site are no longer part of TeamLavasoft
To search and destroy Spyware/Adware/Slyware/Malware.....
(Slyware is what I call them)
Do not use AdAware until they fix their problem
Note: AdAware Plus and Pro are available for version 6.
I have tried the Plus version and I am not impressed
with the detection that it currently provides nor am I
happy with the fact that in order to have more features
as has been promised with this version, you have to
purchase the Pro version
The free version is out now of AdAware
So in my opinion, stay with SpybotSD for detection and
removal of the problems you are/might be having.
(well, let's see, SpybotSD is free, AdAware Pro is 39.95:
SpybotSD gets more targets and types, AdAware may be up-to-date in the future)

SpybotSD is another fine tool to use for this task,
(Exellent in my opinion)

(and it links to more posts in re ad aware)
I read at least half a dozen negative reports on ad aware, sites that had removed their link to ad aware, this is the only site I have saved in my favorites and I'm too busy right now to fish for more. BUT- suit yourself.
PS- I'm not smokin anything.
