Adaware Review – Does Ad-Aware Really Work?

Adware is a type malware that is installed on your computer without your awareness. It can then monitor your computer to determine the things you search for, and then display ads that are related to those searches. This can result in a large number of unwanted ads which can be distracting and slow down your computer. It could also pose serious health, privacy and security risks. Adware is also able to steal your information and sell it to advertisers.

The company behind Adaware is Lavasoft that has been around for many years and has been developing legitimate antivirus software solutions. The program has a straightforward installation and doesn’t require you uninstall your current antivirus. Once installed, you’ll be able to conduct a quick, thorough or custom scan and update the software on the main dashboard.

There are three plans to choose from with adaware, including free, Pro and Total. The free plan provides real-time protection and download security but does not include advertising blockage. The Pro version is more extensive and comes with unlimited technical support, email and web security as well as a strong firewall. It also comes with a digital lock, a parental control and file shredder.

In AV-Comparatives’ Real-World Protection Tests, Ad-aware managed to block 95.4% of malware samples, but only 97% in zero-day tests for detection. These results might seem impressive, but they are not that impressive when compared to the top brands in the market. Both the Pro and Total versions of this antivirus come with a 30 day money back guarantee.
