Just wanted to know what you guys rated the new adaware and whether you feel its worth having on your system?

I gave up on adaware in its previous incarnation where all it ever turned up were false positives and tracking cookies. I haven't seen anything that would make me give the new version hard disk space. There are far better anti-spyware applications out there.

I gave up on it with that much services running in background and very poor detection rate.

the reason I asked this was that I was thinking of using another antispyware program that I could run on my computer to compliment Avast and superantispyware, any suggestions?
