    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    Adaware helped me a whole lot when I was out on the road. Stuck in my hotel with hardly a connection this program was still quick to download, performed a scan right after it installed and i was able to get back to work, saved me.

    Cons

    The definitions are always updating, kinda annoying

    Summary

    Good while it lasts

    "Cnet has it all"

    January 5, 2015  |   By AAGertzy

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    I came to cnet to find a few multimedia apps and ended up leaving with Adaware. Even came back to write about how much it has helped in the performance of my computer, sped up my internet and how fast my computer starts without starting werid applications you can only see in task manager.

    Cons

    Initial scan takes a while, I do quick scan works much faster and i find just as efficient

    "Save yourself"

    January 5, 2015  |   By LindoDavinci68

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    You dont want to be caught without AdAware, it keeps you safe from malware and virus infected software while your doing your daily thing on your laptop. Limits you to certain websites which it knows can be a threat and keeps them away from you by warning/deleting them.

    Cons

    Sometimes it blocks obvious websites that I dont really believe are malicious

    Summary

    Stay connected and dont mind the warnings for the obvious websites you can allow them through

    "Try it for free"

    January 5, 2015  |   By JoelfootlongJohnson

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Cons

    I wish the trial was 30 days i really liked the extra but I can deal!

    Summary

    Free and trustworthy

    Chosen amongst many, does the work my system was asking for
