Running the software may cause many 'dial-up connection' requests to appear if you are not connected. Windows seems to hang temporarily for a few minutes when this happens.

NoAdware is a scam, wait forever while it scans, finds "suspicious" entries that registered Spybot and Spyware Doctor cant find, and then demands $29 to remove the "threats" it finds. Now that really is what I call a free Download
feel free to come back to me for the logs
