A preview of Lavasoft’s newest version of Ad-Aware, which makes its debut in only a few short weeks!

First Look

On August 25th, 2009 we’ll be releasing the new version of Ad-Aware. As a preferred partner, we wanted to give you an inside look at the new features and functionality of the new version.

Like all Lavasoft products, each new version of Ad-Aware is designed specifically with the wants and needs of our users in mind. But, with this release, we’re going a step further by not only releasing a product that gives users the power to protect their privacy with advanced technology and easy-to-use functionality, we’re also introducing new community-based initiatives that give even more power to the people – to the 400 million plus Ad-Aware users across the globe,” explains Lavasoft CEO Jason King.

What’s New & Improved?

Complete Malware Protection

A power-packed combination of our pioneer anti-spyware technology combined with traditional anti-virus to provide comprehensive malware protection, including protection against virus, spyware, blended malware, trojans, rootkits, hijackers, keyloggers, and much more.

New! Genotype Detection Technology

Based on heuristics, genotype allows Ad-Aware to stay one step ahead of today’s ever-evolving threats, as well as threats that have not yet been created.

New! Behavior-Based Heuristics Detection

Extra Sensory Protection allows you to go a step beyond detecting known threats – the heuristics detection finds and blocks unknown and emerging threats and stops deceptive malware and cyber thieves before they attack your personal information.

New! Rootkit Removal System

Expert level rootkit technology to uncover and remove even the most complex monitoring tools, stealth mechanisms and hidden code – preventing the most furtive tactics used to gain unauthorized access to your system.

New! The Neutralizer

Advanced removal tool combats malware that attempts to restore itself even after rebooting your system.

New! Download Guard for Internet Explorer

Download Guard provides an additional layer of protection that lets you download files on Internet Explorer confidently. If the file is malicious, you will simply be notified during the download process so that you can take action before any malware can infiltrate your system.

New! Do Not Disturb Mode

Stay protected while watching videos, playing games, or making presentations in full screen mode – without annoying interruptions or strain on system resources that other security software programs cause.

Minimal Strain on System Resources

Improvements to computer resource usage mean you have protection that won’t slow your computer down.

Easy to Install and Use

We know not all users have the same needs, so we give you the power to decide how you want to interact with Ad-Aware.

–        NEW! Simple Mode allows you to set and forget – by using our expert recommended settings, no interaction is needed from your part, making using the program as easy as possible.

–        NEW! Advanced Mode lets you customize all the settings as you choose, to tailor everything to your specific needs.

New! Community-Driven Translations

The new XML-based language format of the user interface allows you to edit and upload translated text for others to use.

New! Custom skins

Make Ad-Aware your own by choosing the look of the interface that best fits you – or by designing your own custom Ad-Aware skin.

New! Community-Developed Plug-Ins

Ad-Aware now allows developers to expand the functionality of the program by the creation of plug-ins.

Lavasoft Releases Ad-Aware with New Partner in Japan

Gothenburg, Sweden (July 20, 2009) Anti-malware pioneer Lavasoft today announced a new partnership with P&A International Inc. to launch the Ad-Aware family of Internet security software on the Japanese market.

Asia represents over 40% of Internet usage across the globe today, a figure that soared 500% in the past eight years, and Japan remains a key market within that region for security software publishers due to experienced and savvy computer users among the 91 million Internet users.

“75% of Japan’s population is connecting to the Internet, which puts them at high risk of being compromised, whether it be individual identify theft, stolen credit card details, or proprietary information from corporations,” said Lavasoft’s CEO Jason King. “P&A has established expertise with introducing foreign-published products like Ad-Aware to the local market. Lavasoft is an industry-leading developer in malware detection and removal. Our synergies together will provide Japanese computer users with superior security protection.”

According to Internet World Stats, Japan ranks third in global Internet users, following China at the top and the United States in second position. Combined with the fact that they are the second largest nominal GDP economy in the world, the Japanese market is a prime target for Internet attack by malware creators and distributors whose primary intention is to profit from illegal cyber theft.

P&A’s CEO Patrick Hochner adds, “We were the first ASP approved shareware vendor in Japan, and in Lavasoft we have identified a partner with products that meet our high requirements for distribution in our market.”
