    At least they have improved its engine.
    One good thing they have done and does earn my respect is the On-Demand Integration.

    Are they still using the browser addon for Web Protection?

    I haven't used Ad-Aware for years.. So would anyone consider this a worth while on demand scanner?

    I have not tried the latest version but the previous version didn't play well with other real-time AV's and you could disabled its real-time protection but still its services would load with each system startup or each time it was launched using up resources. You would have to manually kill its services each time you ran a on-demand scan and go back to its services and disable them from loading with system startup.

    I do wished they had just a on-demand scanner version.

    Thanks.:D

    Don't worry, they will be on the top, believe me. They now have new VirusLab, new programmers. In last 6 months they have improved greatly. You can't even compare v9 to v10. :)

    Nice to know. I am a little curious. Hopefully one of our video review gurus can do a thorough test soon.

    ^^ some antivirus softwares now, if detects other antivirus software, then installs itself in compatible mode [realtime scan off]

    Avast free, Fortinet, Outpost and now Ad-aware.... in the list

    As far as I remember, Avira could always be installed without the Real-time Guard, making it useful for on-demand only.

    I know they have done improvements but I thought they used VIPRE's VirusLab, they have their own lab now independent from VIPRE?

    Thanks.:D
