    "Excellent Value"

    March 2, 2015  |   By EllisG70

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    In terms of virus detection, Ad-aware is one of the best. Although it's scanning speed is average, the real time detection is so light on resources you wouldn't even notice it. It's basically always on and you can custmize to your own preferences.

    Cons

    Initial scan took a while.

    Summary

    It finds the viruses and it can delete it and that is more then good enough for me.
