    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    It keeps your computer protected and it doesn't expire. No renewal fees detects and catches virus 99.9% all the time. Reliable and free. Better than all antivirus programs you pay for. Better than Norton, Mcafee and more.

    Cons

    Not one thing.

    Summary

    Of the various programs available this seems to tick all the boxes.

    "The best free AV around."

    April 8, 2015  |   By fiqueroa-d70

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    One of the best anti virus programs out there. It has a high detection rate, easy on resources, very fast scanning of files, and does not slow your PC down, and it's free. I tried Avast and it slowed my computer to a craw. I went back Ad-aware.

    Cons

    Everything is good.

    Summary

    This is a really good program to use, And I've never had a problem with it, or it's previous programs, people should use use it!

    Nothing in perticular.

    Summary

    I feel safe when downloading stuff from the internet.

    "A really good program to have."

    April 7, 2015  |   By Paul-c90

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    I have have tried most free AV programs and this is not bad. Low on resources stays out the way once you get rid of pesky ADS!! Nabbed many pieces of malware in real -time, plus found viruses AVG could not.

    Cons

    I have had no real problems with it.

    Summary

    High detection rate - not too many false positives; low profile.

    "It really protects your pc"

    April 7, 2015  |   By glazerach

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    The download and setup were easy and so far it's been fantastic at doing its job, maybe a few false positives, but better that than missing anything.

    Cons

    The detection system it just too great til it cannot differentiate between "good and bad" in a system. It will block some legit programs & websites.
