Adaware Review – Does Ad-Aware Really Work?

Adware is a type malware that can be installed on your computer unknowingly. It will then track you to find out what you are searching for and then display ads that are related to the search results. This can result in a large number of unwelcome ads that could be distracting and slow down your computer. It could also pose serious security, privacy and health risks. Adware is also able to steal data from you and sell it to advertisers.

Lavasoft the company that developed Adaware, has been working on antivirus software for years and is a legitimate company. It is a simple installation and doesn’t require that you delete your current antivirus. Once it’s installed, it can run a rapid, full or custom scan from the main dashboard, and then run product updates.

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

In AV-Comparatives’ Real-World Protection Tests, Adware managed to block 95.4% of malware samples but only 97% of malware samples in the zero-day detection tests. The results might appear good, but they are not that impressive when compared to the top brands in the market. If you’re interested in buying this antivirus, there is a 30-day money-back assurance for both the Pro and Total versions.
