Updating to Ad-Aware Anniversary Edition free (2009)

Currently Ad-Aware offers an update to Ad-Aware Anniversary Edition. You always want to keep all security programs as up-to-date as possible. To update do the following in this sequence:
  1. Download the installer for the latest version of Ad-Aware from here.
  2. Remove the old version.
    (XP: Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs)
    (Vista: Control Panel, Programs and Features)
  3. Restart your computer.
  4. Run the installer program you downloaded in step 1.
  5. Do not run anything else at the same time.
    The installer will restart your computer without a warning!
  6. Start Ad-Aware.
  7. Close the first screen.
  8. Do a Web-Update.
  9. Scan your computer.
  10. If all works as expected delete the downloaded installer file.
As usual I welcome comments and suggestions right here in the blog.

Thank you in advance.
