Yes, they do.Does anyone still use this application?
Well, an AV of sorts anyway. They boast a VB100 Award from Virus Bulletin for Ad-Aware Pro (August 2010), but they've only had a single pass out of 3 submissions. It was last tested in December of 2010, and got a fail, and Virus Bulletin's Reactive/Proactive averaged rating for Ad-Aware Pro was only 82.1%. Interestingly, Lavasoft's Total Security package has done much better, "only" failing the VB100 test twice in four submissions (it also failed in December 2010) and it has a respectable RAP rating of 97% as of Dec. 2010. Of course, it was not Total Security that got the PC Mag Editor's Choice Award in December of 2010, but rather Ad-Aware Pro. Even Rubenking admits that the product hasn't done well in VB100 testing and goes on to admit that AV-Comparatives, ICSA Labs, and West Coast Labs haven't tested the software because Lavasoft "doesn't participate" in those testing programs.
