Adaware Review – Does Ad-Aware Really Work?

Adware is a type malware that is installed on your system without your awareness. It will then track your computer to find out what you are looking for and then display relevant advertisements. This could lead to numerous unwanted ads that can be distracting and slow down your computer. It could also pose serious health, privacy and security threats. Adware can be used to steal data from you and then sell it to marketers.

The company behind Adaware is Lavasoft that has been in operation for a long time, and is the creator of legitimate antivirus software solutions. It is a simple installation and doesn’t require that you uninstall your current antivirus. Once you’ve installed it, you can perform a quick, full or custom scan and update the program on the main dashboard.

Adaware offers three plans that include free, Pro and Total. The free plan includes real-time protection, download security but does not have an the ad blocker. The Pro version is more robust and includes unlimited tech support, email and web protection, as well as a strong firewall. It also comes with an electronic lock, parental control and file shredder.

In AV-Comparatives’ Real-World Protection Tests, Ad-aware was able to block 95.4 percent of malware samples but only 97% in the zero-day tests for detection. These results may seem good, but they are not exactly impressive when compared against other top-rated antiviruses in the market. If you’re considering purchasing this antivirus, there’s an ordinary 30-day money back guarantee for both the Pro and Total versions.
