  1. Sorry, Andy, but according to LavaSoft’s website, Ad-Aware Free does *not* include all these features.

    … unless you know something LavaSoft’s team doesn’t seem to know, yet.

    According to their comparison chart at lavasoft.com/download_and_buy/product_comparison_chart.php …

    The free version includes only “Basic real-time protection”, which is described as “Ad-Watch Live! Basic process protection blocks malicious processes and infected programs that try to start or run on your system.”

    The feature that “monitors outgoing network traffic and block connections to blacklisted IP addresses and known malicious websites” is known as “Expert real-time protection” and is available in only the paid Pro & Total Security versions.

    That same “Expert real-time protection” feature is the one that includes detection of attempted changes to the Windows registry, so that feature also is *not* in the free version.

    The Free version does not include Web surfing protection, nor e-mail scanning, nor anti-spam, nor instant messaging protection.

    Nor the Game Mode, that is Pro version only.

  2. Version 10 is not yet available. It is still at version 9.6.
    Please post again when version 10 is available.
    Thanks for the heads up!
