Bad news from AdAware the (was) best adware finder and evicter we had.
Now they have teamed up with Google and a few other spyware suspects to become the "Google Pack"
Reminds me of the old saying "when you lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas"
Big commercial interests strike again.
The story right from Lavasoft news which came, by surprise,along with the spyware library update.
