Adaware Review – Does Ad-Aware Really Work?

Adware is a kind of malware that can be installed on your computer unknowingly. It can then monitor your computer to determine what you are searching for and then display relevant ads. This can result in large number unwanted ads that can be very distracting, and slow down your computer. It could also pose serious privacy, health and security risks. Adware is also able to steal your data and sell it to advertisers.

Lavasoft the company behind Adaware, has been creating antivirus software for a long time and is a legitimate company. It is a simple installation and doesn’t demand that you remove your current antivirus. Once installed, you can run a quick, complete or custom scan and update the program by accessing the main dashboard.

Adaware offers three plans that include free, Pro and Total. The free plan comes with real-time protection and download protection but does not have an blocking ads. The Pro version provides unlimited tech support, web and email security and a robust fire wall. It also adds a file shredder, digital lock and parental controls.

Ad-aware could block 95.4 percent in AV-Comparatives’ Real-World tests for protection but only 97% of zero-day test samples. These results may seem good however they’re not exactly impressive when compared against the best in the field. Both the Pro and Total versions of this antivirus come with a 30 day money-back guarantee.
