    Cons

    Not too much to complain about

    Summary

    overall great protection tool I recommended it to my friends when they ask my opinion

    "Happy mother"

    December 23, 2014  |   By valentinwagon14

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    My computer kept giving me a notice that my computer was not protected properly so i found this program, I had no viruses thankfully but now i can protect my children from seeing the crazy things that are on the internet! Adaware also provides you with a parental control feature where you can choose what and where your children are browsing and make sure they dont end up on dirty websites.

    Cons

    I know children will always find a way through, but at least i know im safer with the parental control

    "Running smooth again"

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    Over the weekend I opened a couple of files I thought were innocent from a friends email. After that my computer started running so slowly, it took 10 minutes just to get to be able to download this file. After installing the software it pinpointed the location of the file and it was from the emails i got! have to be careful at all times, now i use the real time protection this product offers to make sure it doesnt happen again.

    Cons

    Is it me or is my computer make more noise when its scanning?

    Summary

    be more vigilant when open emails! if not, stay protected with ad aware:)

    Pros

    My boss had asked me to find a good software to keep our computers at the office out of harms way. My friend suggested I go to cnet to find something with good reviews. Thanks to the good reviews I chose this one out of the top ones and was impressed at how quick and easy the installation was on several computers in the office. Now that were protected my managers are calm again :)

    Cons

    Now it looks like we have to purchase it!

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    My husband and i came home to a computer full of bugs and pop ups after having let our nephew "browse" the internet. After fighting the pop ups i finally came across this software and it saved my evening, was finally able to access my emails after the quick scan found and it deleted the threats on my PC, Thanks!

    Cons

    Due to my age, figuring out the install was a little difficult. My nephew made up for it by doing it for me, looked super easy.

    Summary

    After figuring out all the buttons im impressed at how easy it was!

    "Always ready to seek and destroy"

    December 22, 2014  |   By Purrfectors

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    I don't know how but Ad Aware has managed to rid my computer of a Trojan that threatened to cleanout my entire drive. I would have probably had to buy a new computer if Ad Aware hadn't been able to save me. Thankfully all my family pictures and work files are intact and everything is running very smoothly.

    Cons

    thanks Ad Aware!

    Summary

    Save yourself the pain of trying to figure out how to save your computer, just get Ad Aware and stay protected !
