    Hi gabriela88 and AgingArmadillo,



    There is only one download file of Ad-Aware 10.1 and that is the Free Antivirus+ version including a 30 day trial of Pro Security. If you don't want to use any of the features specific for Pro Security, you just switch off all features under "Advanced Protection" on the main screen. I think this will be changed in version 10.2.

    I have just had the exact same problem where my old "Free" version notified me that I should update to version 10, and I followed the instructions carefully. I also got the 30 day trial. I removed AdAware and started over at Lavasoft site, with same bad result as before. I just deleted AdAware for the 2nd time.

    I just came across the same problem, gabriela88, and I can only surmise that it's an underhanded/cynical ploy to "encourage" users to upgrade to a paid version!

    The very fact that I had to register to make a comment in this forum, is somewhat suspect in my book.

    However, I can tell you this... I will never again use a Lavasoft product after this!

    I don't take kindly to being manipulated in such an obvious and cynical fashion, and I will be on the lookout for a replacement to Ad-Aware from this day forward.

    Hi Rockster,



    Unfortunately it is necessary to register to this and almost all other forums, due to all spammers and other criminals that would completely destroy the forums without registration requirements.



    Sorry, that you don't appreciate Lavasoft's gift to their customers, that is to have better protection for free during a month.
