with years of experience with computer security, Ad-aware use to be good. Back in 2010 and down, it use to have good detections and good compatabilities.
Ad-aware, as of 2011 and up, ad-aware got new license owners for their software, and have been proven to be rogue software. The first notice to this is it compability issues. Use any AV, and you will experience internet problems, system crashes or freezes, and massive slow downs. Another notice you will see is alot of false positives. Adobe, Java, Avast, Ccleaner, and a few other software are still being reported as false positives up tiull today. Despite all that, its detection ratios are low. Don't believe me? Look at this: http://www.lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/securitycenter/blog Look at the number of definitions they bring in and each of them are measured only daily. You can see the dates they were inputted, aswell. Now compare that to other programs like Super antispyware or Avast and tell me if that's even good at all.
This is Rogue software. I am warning you about this. I don't know if that makes it definitions good or what, and I don't know if its even worth keeping the 2010 version and down. I advise removal of this and get something better.
