Hello Ad-Aware users,

If you are still using Ad-Aware SE personal and you notice that your program no longer updates it is because the new version of Ad-Aware 2007 Ad-Aware 2008 Ad-Aware Anniversary Edition is now available.

EDIT 20 Jan 2009: Ad-Aware Anniversary Edition is now the latest version.

See http://www.lavasoft....ts/ad_aware.php for more info.

Edit 01 Jun 2008: Ad-Aware 2008 is now the latest version of Ad-Aware. This topic is now outdated.
Use the following link to get the latest version of Ad-Aware

The SE version has expired effective December 31, 2007 but you can download to the new Ad-Aware 2007 here:

And check for the links on the left hand side to download your license for the upgraded version.

We have noted a number of people wondering why SE has expired. Here is the answer!


We realize there is a lot of sentiment for the old SE version of Ad-Aware but frankly it is simply obsolete. It was designed back in something like 2002 when malware was much different than the malware issues we face today. It was woefully inadequate against today's newer threats and Ad-Aware 2007 has been completely redesigned from the ground up to deal with these new threats.

Take a good look at what is new depending on what version you are using:

What's New In Ad-aware 2007 Free

What's New In Ad-aware 2007 Plus

What's New In Ad-aware 2007 Pro

There are many more reasons for this new version :)

I'm sure that if you think about the difference in the malware scene and operating systems of today you can see why the old SE which no longer performs up to par and has been rebuilt to the new Ad-aware 2007
