Adaware Review – Does Ad-Aware Really Work?

Adware is a type of malware that can be downloaded onto your computer without knowing. It can then monitor your computer to discover what you are looking for and display relevant ads. This could lead to an abundance of unwanted ads which can be distracting and slow down your computer. It also poses serious health, privacy and security risks. Adware can also be used to steal data from you and sell it to advertisers.

The company behind Adaware is Lavasoft which has been in existence for many years and has been developing legitimate antivirus software solutions. The program is simple to installation and doesn’t demand that you uninstall your existing antivirus. After it’s installed you can perform a quick custom or full scan from the main dashboard and execute product updates.

There are three plans to choose from with Adaware: free, Pro and Total. The free plan offers real-time protection and download protection however it does not include ad blocker. The Pro version is more robust and comes with unlimited tech support, email and web security as well as a strong firewall. It also comes with an electronic lock, a file shredder and parental controls.

Ad-aware was able to block 95.4% in AV-Comparatives Real-World tests for protection however it could only block 97% of zero-day samples. These results may seem good however they’re not exactly impressive when compared against other top-rated antiviruses in the market. If you’re thinking of purchasing this antivirus, there is an ordinary 30-day money back guarantee for both the Pro and Total versions.
