  • Uses 74% less memory than Ad-Aware 2008.
  • Only uses 18% of the CPU during scans – nearly 60% less [sic] resources than the previous version, and considerably less than each competitor product tested, including AVG, Kaspersky, Norton, and PC Tools.
  • Scans 36 MB per second – faster than each competitor product tested, and over 4 times faster than AVG’s.

As always, there's a Free Edition available for download alongside the commercial version.
