Adaware Review – Does Ad-Aware Really Work?

Adware is a type of malware that is installed on your computer without your awareness. It then monitors your computer to determine what you are looking for and then display relevant ads. This could lead to a large number of unwanted ads that can be extremely distracting and slow down your computer. It also can pose serious security, privacy and health threats to your health and security. Adware can be used to take your personal information and then sell it to marketers.

The company behind adaware is Lavasoft that has been around for decades and develops legitimate antivirus software solutions. The program is simple to install and doesn’t require you to remove your existing antivirus. Once it’s installed, you can run a fast full or custom scan from the main dashboard and execute software updates.

There are three plans available with Adaware: free, Pro and Total. The free plan provides immediate protection against downloads and viruses but does not include ad blocking. The Pro version comes with unlimited tech support, email and web security as well as a robust fire wall. It also comes with a digital lock, a file shredder and parental controls.

In AV-Comparatives’ Real-World Protection Tests, Ad-aware was able to block 95.4% of malware samples, but only 97% of malware samples in the zero-day tests for detection. These results may seem good, but they are not as impressive when compared to other top-rated antiviruses in the market. Both the Pro and Total versions of this antivirus come with a thirty-day money back guarantee.
