Adaware Review – Does Ad-Aware Really Work?

Adware is a type malware that can be downloaded onto your computer without you knowing. It will then track you to find out what you are looking for and then show ads that are relevant to those searches. This can result in a large number unwanted ads that can be extremely distracting, and slow down your computer. It can also pose serious privacy, health and security threats. Adware is also able to steal your data and sell it to advertisers.

Lavasoft is the company behind Adaware, has been creating antivirus software for a long time and is a reputable company. The program is easy to installation and doesn’t require you uninstall your existing antivirus. Once it is installed, it can run a rapid custom or full scan from the main dashboard, and then run product updates.

There are three plans offered with adaware, including free, Pro and Total. The free plan includes real-time protection, download security, but not ad blocker. The Pro version is more complete and includes unlimited tech support as well as email and web protection, as well as a powerful firewall. It also adds a file shredder, digital lock, and parental controls.

Ad-aware could block 95.4 percent in AV-Comparatives’ Real-World protection tests however it could only block 97% of zero-day test samples. While these results may appear good, they’re far from being impressive when compared with the best in the field. Both the Pro and Total versions of this antivirus come with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
