Real-time Protection with Ad-Watch

Ad-Watch is the real time monitor included in the Ad-Aware SE Plus and Professional Editions. Ad-Watch goes beyond what other security suites offer by adding another layer of protection to your system proactively. It runs silently in the background, watching for Malware/parasites that try to install on or modify your system.

While Ad-Aware SE detects and cleans your system from known Malware and advertising parasites, Ad-Watch goes even further by catching these programs before they can integrate into your system.

You can lock the startup sections of your registry, block possible and actual browser hijack attempts, block suspicious processes, lock executable file associations, block malicious cookies, block pop-ups, and uses the all new CSI technology to protect you from unknown variants as well.

The new version of Ad-Watch includes a new site manager where you can edit the included pop-up blacklist. It also includes a new rule editor that allows you to configure Ad-Watch to pre-allow changes to the registry.

Ad-Aware SE is compatible with Microsoft Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP/2003 and Microsoft Windows Terminal Services.
