    NoAdware: really good or a load of "Sh**"?

    I have noadware, the (well known) adware removal tool - www.noadware.net. My friend has told me that it lies about what is on your pc and that it is crap.

    Arguement for crap:

    1. All anti-virus software used found the same things that noadware did.
    2.Spoke on live-help to "bulldog" (makers of a antivirus program) and were told that was crap.

    Arguement against:

    1.noadware checks the ram for adware; the other software used doesnt.
    2.noadware checks for adware, whereas the anti-virus software used only checks for viruses.

    What do you thin - do you know anything (noadware is free to download and try, only you have to pay if you want to remover anything that it finds)

    Why not use AdAware or Spybot Search and Destroy (or both). They are not only free to download and try - they are free to use.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    # 1.5) No objectionable content- Do not post content/subject/links that may not be appropriate to everybody, including minors. Examples include adult links, hateful/ distasteful content, vulgar language etc.
    Using vulgar language with certain letters starred out is still not appropriate in our forums.

    Not to mention the fact that the '*' character can also be used as a wildcard. The way it was typed could be referring to multiple word endings (usually only suffixes though).

    I'm going to say it is crap. I did a scan with it and it found many files that I knew were legit. Ironically I scanned with lavasoft adaware and it picked up noadware as spyware. Needless to say I uninstalled noadware after adaware picked it up.
