Adaware Review – Does Ad-Aware Really Work?


Adware is a type of malware that can be installed on your computer in a way that you are unaware of. It then monitors your computer to find out what you are searching for and then show relevant ads. This could lead to an abundance of unwanted ads which can be distracting and slow down your computer. It also poses serious security health, privacy, and security dangers. Adware can be used to obtain data from you and sell it to marketers.

Lavasoft, the company behind adaware, has been developing antivirus software for a long time and is a reputable company. The program is easy to install and doesn’t require you to remove your existing antivirus. After it’s installed you can run a speedy, full or custom scan from the main dashboard, and then run the necessary updates to your product.

There are three plans that come with adaware: free, Pro and Total. The free plan offers real-time protection as well as download protection but does not include advertising blockage. The Pro version is more robust and comes with unlimited technical support, email and web protection, as well as an effective firewall. It also includes an electronic lock, a parental control and a file shredder.

In AV-Comparatives’ Real-World Protection Tests, Ad-aware was able to block 95.4% of malware-related samples, but only 97% during the zero-day tests for detection. These results may seem good however they’re not that impressive when compared to the best in the field. If you’re interested in purchasing this antivirus, there is a 30-day money-back guarantee for both the Pro and Total versions.
