    "Protection is instant"

    November 21, 2014  |   By BloodyaKnight

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    From the moment the installation was completed and the full scan finished, I saw a huge change in my computer's speed and even my browser was working better. I especially like the scheduled scans and simple interface.

    Cons

    Good software, Got no reason to doubt it

    "Easily the best"

    November 20, 2014  |   By CalmingPatterns

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    The last few months consisted of me downloading and uinstalling roughly 6 antiviruses all in the goal of seeing if a virus was behind the mayhem that overtook my computer. Everyone of them felt sluggish and slow to the punch. None detected whatever was accountable for all this. Then I installed Ad Aware and within minutes of my scan I found a very nasty Trojan virus. Ever since, i've noticed a big performance increase with a nice boost in my computer's responsiveness.

    Cons

    No iPad version

    Summary

    Suggested to any person struggling with a virus

    "Consistently protecting my computer"

    November 20, 2014  |   By TitanWarrior19

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    Blocks just about anything that remotely looks like a virus. Probably the most user friendly and consistently stable antivirus with a fully loaded set of features that make life a lot easier.

    Cons

    Installation was easy but the full scan option seemed to take a while. Doing quick scans now.

    "Total protection for my laptop"

    November 20, 2014  |   By WaterChimp

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    This program is the mother of all free antiviruses, its got eveything I need in one easy to understand and use package. I don't need my son to come over and remove whatever the infection of the week is, instead I can easily do it myself and feel much less stressed when using the net.

    Cons

    Nothing for this section

    Summary

    If something better is out there, I have yet to hear about it.

    "Internet security has never been stronger"

    November 20, 2014  |   By BigsmellyBanana

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    Found out about Ad Aware through people who told me it was rated as one of the top AVs on Virus Bulletin. That can only be a good thing and as for detection, Ad Aware falls into the top percentile. Interface is squeeky clean and requires almost no intervention.

    Cons

    Other AVs seem to only match some needs but don't offer full protection, Ad Aware gives everything for free and quality never suffers.

    "The only antivirus that evolves"

    November 20, 2014  |   By ShakyWiFi

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    In my time using Ad Aware I found it actually learned with every virus definition it downloaded and was constantly aware of all new threats 24/7. Its protection I can count on and it's very affordable.

    Cons

    Completely appreciated

    Summary

    An antivirus will always be needed, might as well get the one thats intuitive and free.
