Another cleaner program that is of unknown quality. Their claim of fixing the about:blank hijack would be great news if it is legit, but somehow I don't think it will fix it. It also says it fixes Look2me...

Adware Away: http://adwareaway.com/index.html


I've seen people recommending this on various help forums, so either it works or they are spamming the boards for $$$. No one who recommended is know by me to any form of an expert or is part of the board staff...

Nick:

I've tested AdwareAway. It's an odd program, resembling no other program that I've tested. In some ways it resembles HJT inasmuch its primary focus is diagnosis of specific problems rather than scanning of the Registry or hard drive. But instead of presenting the user with a long list of system settings (as HJT does), it spreads the information among a dozen or so tabs.

Not sure I'd recommend this program over the usual tools, but it doesn't quite fit with the other programs on the rogue anti-spyware page.

Best,

Eric L. Howes
