    Since this is supposed to be released tomorrow, I thought I'd give you techs a heads up. Undoubtedly and as always with a new release of AA, there will be many users looking for help. While it may be nothing of consequence and may not cause you guys any extra probs solving users probs, I thought you should be aware and prepared to look for an unusual amount of F/Ps. LS has said that they no longer depend on name recognition for detection but that is in complete disagreement with my findings thus far. Like I said, it may not amount to anything but you may want to keep the thought in the back of your mind when those users come rolling in.

    Can you tell us what your findings were?
    When it is available, I would like to check if it uses name recognition by playing with file sizes, filenames, and see if the updates contain MD5 Checksums or something like that. Although it probably uses a proprietary identification system like Spybot's .sbi files.

    EDIT: I see all these things were covered in your link.

    Announcing the release of Ad-aware Standard Edition!
    It is with great pleasure that we make our popular anti-trackware utility available to the public. We know that you have waited a long time for this release and now it has finally arrived! We could have spent the last few months constantly replying to some of our more vocal critics, but instead chose to answer their challenge by providing our users with the best combination of privacy solutions available. The same effort and craftsmanship that we put into our registered versions has been put into our freeware offering.

    Contrary to some reports and rumors that would have you believe we had abandoned Ad-aware or were releasing beta software, we have poured our hearts, souls and bodies into this project. We encourage you to try our software and compare it to what others are offering (sometimes at outrageous prices) for FREE! Then you will understand how far ahead of the rest of the industry our products are and why you can’t be without Ad-aware in your personal privacy arsenal.

    We will be updating our site as soon as possible with our mirror’s links, but until they are ready you can get a copy from the following (this list will also be updated):
