The regularity with which I see people refer to Ad-Aware as "Adware" drives me up the wall. I know that some of them must certainly be people trying to push Ad-Aware knockoffs that carry adware payloads and trojans.
It makes me want to just smack someone around when I see that sort of "error" arise, honest or otherwise. I can understand an occasional typo, but most of these have to be more than typos: I'm sure many (aside from intentionally leading people astray) are people that, in many circumstances, would complain about my intent attention to careful spelling.
It is in cases like this that attention to detail in correctly spelling out what you're trying to say most pays off. By not knowing the correct name and spelling, and by not bothering to check through the extremely easy process of a quick Google search, some people are actually leading others astray and causing (further) problems for others rather than alleviating them.
Kudos, dafe2, for catching the error. If only others paid such attention to what they were typing.
