Aluria App Spots More Spyware

Eliminator employs a Mac-like UI that clearly shows the severity of the spyware found on the system and offers scanning wizards to help users quickly purge their systems. However, unlike Lavasofts Ad-Aware, Eliminator does not automatically check for spyware definition updates when launched. I had to manually update the application from the drop-down menus.
In addition, once the definition update is completed, Eliminator opens a Web page on Alurias Web site with links to special offers, which can be annoying.
