Default Adaware SE paid version -- Worth the Cost?

I was wondering if the experts thought it was worth paying for Adaware SE
paid version if one already has the free version along with Spybot -- Search
and Destroy, Spysweeper by Webroot, and SpywareBlaster. It is this way in my
case and I would appreciate any information that you can give me. Thanks in
advance.

Just curious Dan, but why would you want to pay for something that is
offered free ?

How about real time "on access" protection rather than just "on demand" scans.

How about because it's still one the best anti-adware/spyware apps =
around and the author deserves at least a donation to his cause, if for =
no other reason. Personally, I wouldn't use the additional protections =
the paid version offers, but the author is definitely deserving of some =
return.

Thanks for the feedback, Gary. I know I can always count on you to give a
good and informative response.

To be clear, I wouldn't use the additional protections because I am =
satisfied with the protections I have in place. I find that duplication =
of active scanning/blocking protection software usually leads to =
problems. I use SpywareBlaster and the MVP HOSTS file, along with eTrust =
antivirus and Firewall as active protection, all on top of properly =
conservative IE/OE settings, and they seem to cover all the bases. Any =
more than that, Spybot's additional tools like Immunization and TeaTime, =
for instance, tends to get in my way without providing any additional =
protection.

Excellent! It reminds me of having your cake and getting to eat it too. :
BTW, which MVP HOSTS file(s) do you use?

hello,
very little 'hello',
do not know if I am going to get way out of my depth,
but could you tell me what MVP HOSTs file means?
Is it somethng we all should have?;
I think I mentioned also once before that I dont have a firewall,
(kids are kept well away from matches in my house) and I havent
yet suffered any Internet Inconvenience due to it...
I know most people here have told me I should have one, I even
got told the same thing tonight from the person who gave me linux
disks, but I am yet to get past all the posts this newsgroup has
regarding the interference and problems caused by actually having
a fire-wall. (especially the problems it causes with a persons own ISP.)

That was not the reason for my post, my curiousity lies in the
the MVP hosts file. (& what is it?)

regards Jane
