I'm a long time user of Adaware SE [the good ole days]. About 7 months ago Adaware stopped providing update definition files for SE so everyone would hop on the Adaware 2007 band wagon. Well I've been using Adaware 2007 since than and I must say it's way too unstable. Sure I can do my weekly scans and find certain bad things I remove as usual. But as far as it's stability the program has gone down the toilet. Sometimes I'll update the definitions files through the web update button and the program will crash after the update has been installed, it may restart itself and display a windows error message such as this one:
Or even worse sometimes it just won't download any updates and show some sort of "error SSL failed try web update" message. & am I crazy? Because for heck sakes sometimes the program searches for software updates and shows me all these checkmarked language files from languages I don't even speak. Why would anyone like me want to download arabian, french, dutch, and other foreign languages when my application should be english? & knowing that it is running in english it shouldn't search for such updates. Or what am I bi-lingual now??? LOL. But beyond that I hear and have seen that there are countless background processes running because this software is installed. That's just slowing down my pc and heck I don't need that because I'm still on a P3 1.4Ghz w/512mb of ram!
Is there any solution to this [bleep] software? I'm sick of this... But I need to scan my files and this is like a sister software for Spybot Search & Destory. They go hand in hand during my weekly scans. What would I replace Adaware with? Or have they figured out the chaos and released a newer stable version?
I'm done with this... What am I to do? I'm even scared to uninstall it. Heck it may leave half of it's files and registry crap all over my darn pc.
