    "Great for non savvy people"

    October 30, 2014  |   By ChavezFreedoms

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    Ad Aware has made my computer usage easier and more enjoyable. I don't need to start learning about which file extensions to avoid and what sites not to go on, I wanted something simple to protect me from all of that without me having to worry about it. Ad Aware keeps everything working safely and it's barely noticeable.

    Cons

    none that I would mention

    "Whoever made this deserves an award"

    October 30, 2014  |   By MaistroPlz

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    Ran ad aware with AVG and ad aware thought AVG was a virus. Given how ineffective and slow AVG makes my system run, I'd say ad aware could be on to something. I removed AVG soon after and now only have ad aware.

    Cons

    The first scan and first virus definition took a while

    Summary

    I wont be renewing my AVG that's for sure

    "Ad Aware has done well on my computer!"

    October 30, 2014  |   By WillInDaBar

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    No conflicts with other applications, no false positives, speedy scans and active protection are all I really need to prevent any virus from infecting my computer

    Cons

    This being free means you'll see the occasional 'upgrade to paid offer'

    Summary

    Wouldn't have take the time to write this if I didn't think it was worth other people knowing about it.,

    "Non intrusive and reliable"

    October 30, 2014  |   By gardencuckoo

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    Free is good! Thats actually what made me download it in the first place - along with the positive feedback I've been hearing. Once I tried it, I was hooked ! It's crazy light, works so well and has prevented many a virus from making it through. I don't think anything will ever compare.

    Cons

    Puts me in a good mood knowing that I dont have to worry about my computer's security anymore.

    "Downloaded this for my grandfather"

    October 30, 2014  |   By Mckayerss

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    Grandfather keeps getting his computer infected with viruses and of course, i'm the go to guy in the family when it comes to computer support! Normally the worst of the viruses I've seen result in having to reformat a drive or worse, replacing the computer all together but with Ad Aware I never had to worry about that. No virus is too big for Ad Aware to tackle and kill.

    Cons

    Easy enough for my grandfather to understand it

    Summary

    Its way easier than you might think and it doesn't take any time to setup.

    "Very well rounded"

    October 30, 2014  |   By JosephNJacob13

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    Not much to say, it should all speak for itself once Ad Aware is installed and running on your PC. This is a marvelous free software and anyone who says otherwise obviously hasn't given it a chance. The only free anti virus that can take care of ever single aspect of your online security is Ad Aware.

    Cons

    Encounterd none

    Summary

    Who wouldn't like this ?

    October 30, 2014  |   By irishbarsonlypls

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Cons

    I may not know what Im doing so I'd like it to be simpler

    Summary

    Take more time than I did to understand it

    October 30, 2014  |   By ba4prez32

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    A few versions went by before I decided to download Ad Aware again, and boy was I ever surprised once I got through the setup! Its changed drastically since the last time I've tried it and has gotten better than ever at securing my harddrive. I don't need to worry anymore now that I see it works even better than the others.

    Cons

    Not a single issue
