  Hi,

  As someone mentioned in another post, there is a difference between "adware" 
and "ad aware".  The latter is a program that removes adware from your 
computer.  Adware is annoying software that is installed on your computer and 
monitors  what your web habits are, what sort of searches you do, among other 
things.  When you install the free version of Ares P2P, there is some adware 
that is installed on your computer.  This is why I was interested in purchasing 
the Pro version, which supposedly would allow you to uses Ares without the 
adware.  But since I never got a response from the makers of this software, I 
can't verify this.  So I decided to pass on purchasing it.  Now I'm looking for 
another similar P2P client that works with Jaws.

      Hi all,
      With this program, during installation, if you take careful notice of 
what it is installing, you can choose not to install the programs which are 
adware.  I am using this, and have weeded out programs which are additional 
adware to the actual p to p program.
      Hope this helps.

        Hi Everybody,

        I had mentioned before how I liked Ares P2P as an Jaws accessible P2P 
application.  While that's still true, I can't recommend anyone purchasing the 
Pro version.  I've sent a couple of emails with questions to the makers of the 
software and I've yet to get a response from them. I wanted them to answer my 
questions  first before I purchased the Pro version from them.  It's too bad 
too because I really like the software.  While the free version works very 
well, it installs adware and I don't care for that at all.  Oh well, back to 
the drawing board I guess.

        Michael
