    "The simplest antivirus around"

    October 5, 2014  |   By MoodyMops

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.3.6321

    Pros

    Keeps my netbook free from all online dangers, gives me the choice of reviewing the files that are quarantined before it deletes them and has a really lovely user interface.

    Cons

    I enjoy my experience with AdAware and have nothing negative to report

    Summary

    I guess the high ratings and amazing editor reviews are well merited.

    "Not impressed"

    October 5, 2014  |   By rdc1253

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.3.6321

    Pros

    Free. Can't think of much else.

    Cons

    Decided to try it after reading the reviews. Uses much more memory that other AV's I've tried. Increased my computer startup time by more that 50%. Slowed startup of programs and in general made computer seem much less responsive.

    Summary

    Cannot recommend. Went back to Avast.

    "Best Optimized AntiVirus"

    October 4, 2014  |   By MunroeEmpires

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.3.6321

    Pros

    Ad Aware gives me great protection, fantastic at warning you of bad sites immediately. Never get any infections & keeps my computer safe. Scans are very fast and not at all intrusive.

    Cons

    It blocks some bad sites that might not appear to be threatening at first but if you trust that site, u can allow it.

    Summary

    Like a giant antivirus net that won't let anything through.

    "Free, but worth buying"

    October 4, 2014  |   By Will-ngo

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.3.6321

    Pros

    It's easy to install and configure. I've had no trouble integrating it with my email client, compression utility or other programs. When it comes to virus protection, it works as well or better than other paid programs.

    Cons

    It will block some programs, but you can unblock them.
