Adaware Review – Does Ad-Aware Really Work?

Adware is a form of malware that can be installed on your computer unknowingly. It can then monitor you to find out what you search for and then display ads that are related to those searches. This can lead to a large number unwanted ads that can be extremely distracting, and slow down your PC. It also can pose serious security health, privacy and privacy risks. Adware can also be used to steal your information and sell it to advertisers.

The company behind adaware is Lavasoft which has been around for decades and develops legitimate antivirus software solutions. It is a simple installation and doesn’t require that you delete your current antivirus. Once you’ve installed it, you can perform a quick, comprehensive or custom scan, and update the software from the main dashboard.

There are three plans that come with adaware: free, Pro and Total. The free plan includes real-time protection and download security but does not include the ability to block ads. The Pro version includes 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 of AV-Comparatives’ real-world protection tests but only 97% of zero day samples. These results might seem impressive, but they are not exactly impressive when compared against the leaders in the industry. If you’re interested in buying this antivirus, there is a 30-day money-back guarantee for both the Pro and Total versions.
