What is Ad-Aware SE?

Ad-Aware SE is the latest version of our award winning and industry leading line of antispyware solutions and represents the next generation in Spyware detection and removal. It is quite simply the most advanced solution available to protect your privacy. With the all new Code Sequence Identification (CSI) technology that we have developed, you will not only be protected from know content, but will also have advanced protection against many of their unknown variants.

Designed for Windows 98, 98SE, Win ME, Win NT 4, Win 2000, and Win XP Home/Professional you can be sure that you will have the most effective privacy protection that has ever been offered by Lavasoft.
