    Pros

    Ad-aware is thorough, there's no denying that; When it comes to detection of malicious files and system regulation not many of the other anti- virus software come close to the superior protection Ad-aware has to offer. Good value for money.

    No problems with it!

    Actually the software is the best to use in scanning viruses.

    "Good for Newer Systems and Novices."

    April 10, 2015  |   By rrobertly

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    I've been regularly downloading Ad-aware software for the use of our home computer systems for 10 years now. I trust the software because I can install it and forget about it knowing I can trust their products. At my parents home, my sisters, or brothers is computer savy so it's great to have products like this available. Installation was easy as usual. The program does everything it advertises and more. It's worth the money I paid for it.

    Cons

    If you have an older system you may want to consider something else.

    Summary

    Knowing that I have nothing to worry about my computer being trashed with crap is great news to me.
