    "It turns your PC into a Fortress"

    March 28, 2015  |   By Twall7999

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    Best anti-virus ever for me. I wouldn't change it for any other one at the moment. I found it exremley useful with persistant malware that kept popping up when I was browsing the internet. Most other anti-virus applications blocked them but giving me a blank internet page! I had to refresh each time to get to the page I wanted to go. This was very frustrating for me and my family who are regular internet users. Ad-aware worked from start, blocking any adware/malware without us even noticing any change in browsing.

    Cons

    Have not had any problems.

    Summary

    It has kept me (my computer) virus free since I have used it.
