    I believe it has full functionality except it is a manual scan started by
    the user. Where as the full version has an autoprotect feature which
    pro-actively scans and removes trojans automatically.

    Subject: Ad-aware

    I have been tasked with identifying suitable anti-trojan-ware for
    workstations. Ive been looking at AdAware. Its free and seems to do the
    job. Im wondering what is the catch.?

    Has anyone done a review of antitrojan sofrware? Id like to know if there
    is a suitable/cheap/supported product that we can use to compliment sophos
    that will protect against malicious code, trojans, session hijacking and
    other web nasties.

    Thanks

    Jack
