What was in the articel?

I recommend every pc newbie to install this & norton antivirus to keep their pc running properly. Adware is a kick *** program in my humble opinion..

The program is no longer being updated to handle new spyware targets. In fact, I feel that it is necessary to recommend to everyone that they simply remove Ad-aware version 5 entirely. Using it in its current, unupdated form can be, and has been proven to be dangerous
because the program doesn't get any updates, it can remove regkeys/files that are not ads at all, thereby corrupting the OS & programs that use these files

Warp2 is back up, it points to : http://www.tech-critic.com/comments.php?catid=1&id=1345 ... which is down

But ... always hear out the TWO parties involved !

http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index...=ST&f=1&t=1868

I'm not alarmed and i keep advising people to use lavasoft ... till further notice of course.
