Hello:

Saw an ad for Lavasofts Ad-AwareŽ SE Professional Edition.

A bit confused over what it does, and does not, do.

a. Is this version a full featured virus blocker like Norton and McCafee's
offerings ?

b. Does it have a "track-record" re the finding and removal of virus's, or
is it a pretty new product ?

c. Virus definitions updated pretty frequently ?

d. Any general opinions on it, e.g., safe, stable, effective, etc. ?

Thanks,
B.
