Review of NoAdware

Spyware, adware, diallers, and web bugs can easily be installed onto a PC without the owner even realising. These infections can slow down or crash the computer, change a browser's home and search pages, track surfing habits or even open up the PC to hackers ready to take passwords and personal details if not traced and removed. That's where softwares like antispyware become invaluable.

There are lots of both paid and free anti-spyware programs out there, and, like all things in life, some are better than others. The question often asked is, which is better, a free program or a paid one.

The simple answer is that the best approach is a combination of the two, and, unlike anti-virus programs, you can run more than one anti-spyware program on your system without any problems.

First thing to do is to install the totally free Spybot Search and Destroy program, which will eliminate 70-85 per cent of all known spyware. Then, invest a little money in a good paid program like Spyware Doctor,
Noadware or Spyware Nuker to complete the job for you. Yes, I know that it means spending some money, but if it can prevent someone stealing your credit card details, for example, then it's a sure fire thing that its going to be money well spent.

Another advantage of the paid programs is that they generally have a more effective "pro-active" nature to them than the free programs do. In other words, they are usually far better at stopping spyware and adware actually getting into your PC in the first place, and, clearly, preventing the problem is far easier and less time consuming than having to deal with it once your PC becomes infected.

Adware, Spyware, Dialer, and Web Bug Scan
Noadware 5.0 is constantly updated to identify the latest threats to your privacy. The software will scan your PC for different Spyware, Adware, Dialers, and Web Bug traces. These items not only create nuisances in the form of popups, system slowdowns and crashes, but many items actually record personal information about you, such as credit cards, social security numbers, or other sensitive information.

PC Immunization
Wouldn't you like to simply prevent malicious components from ever adding themselves to your computer in the first place?
Simple! With the click of a button, you can safely block those annoying yes/no boxes asking for your permission to install adware/spyware. If you happen to attempt to install an item that exists on our block list, the item will actually be prevented from being installed!

Browser and PC Shields
You can configure various browser shields to further protect your computer when online, including a real time shield, that will prevent items we detect from ever running on your PC in the first place!
Check the Protect IE Favorites box to ensure that no website can add their URL to your browser's 'Favorite List'.
In fact each time a bookmark is attempted, NoAdware will alert you and ask for your authorization to add the specific URL to the browser's 'Favorite List'.
This feature prevents addition of website URLs to your browsers favorites from unwanted or potentially offensive or dangerous websites!

Add a schedule
This is another useful feature that is built into the NoAdware application. With this you can schedule times when NoAdware will automatically scan your computer for possible adware / spyware infiltrations. This protects you in the event that you forget to do so manually.

Noadware is one such product – free for download from the company website and highly effective against spyware. Available since 2002, No Adware comes well recommended. It runs on most versions of Windows: 95, 98, ME, NT 3.x, XP, 2000, 2003 and CE.
