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.
