Hi guys ! I installed a program called NoAdware and I noticed that beats the top rated antispyware programs at spyware/adware detections. But recently i wrote that the Program is a kind of adware product and is marked as a bad product by some Antispyware programs! Is this true , and if it is , how come it's more effective than the others then?
Please help and excuse my english

Welcome baltata to Geeks to Go!

NoAdware was listed as rogue because of concerns with false positives and the use of aggressive, deceptive advertising including exploitation of the name "ad-aware".

NoAdware has taken aggressive steps to reign in its affiliates (who were primarily responsible for the unsavory advertising) and released a new version of NoAdware (version 3.0) that addresses our concerns with false positves. Given these changes we can no longer regard NoAdware as "rogue/suspect" anti-spyware.

I hope this gives you the answers you are looking for.

thanks! yes it does give me an answer , but i am still confused , because of the other programs that are detecting NoAdware 3.0 as a spyware, for example SpyBot S&D finds it as adware and delete it.

I guess it finds the definitions and flags them.

You can ask Spybot to ignore that program.

EDIT:
As there has been no reply from the original poster for more than two weeks this topic is now closed.

If you are the original poster and still need assistance, please send me a PM.
