    "The way all AV should be."

    April 29, 2015  |   By Yur-fred

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    This program has to be the best program out there. Especially if you download a lot like me. One thing I found EXTREMELY useful is Ad-aware scans all incoming files and even the websites I browse. It also recognizes viruses that many different popular Anti-virus programs do not detect.
    I would highly recommend this program, especially for frustrated users of McAfee, Norton, or any other anti-virus program that just isn't doing it's ""job"

    Cons

    I haven't found anything to dislike about this first rate product.

    Summary

    By far the best antivirus around

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    I have used many AV programs but they all gave me problems. Ad-aware has never given me any problems.

    Love the automatic updates, quick and unobtrusive.

    Live detection scans everything I that comes into my PC.

    Yet my system runs well and FAST

    Cons

    Well it has no cons but .... when it blocks a virus attack at real time it doesn't give much details of the virus.
