    "Destruction derby
    Destruction derby"

    January 21, 2015  |   By hunting4pheasants

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    my brother and I went out looking for the most infested computers on Craigslist and came home with two messes to clean up. Adaware was the free software I tried. It worked really great, the computer j bought for 20$ is now back up to a 600$ one! Will sell it with Adaware on it for the next person!

    Cons

    everything was relatively easy I can't complain

    Summary

    If you're caught with a non working computer send it over!

    I will not take anything away from Adaware

    "Its a miracle"

    January 20, 2015  |   By whatchuknowaboutdonkeys

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    I never thought I would be so bummed out over a virus, the ones I've had before were never that serious, this time I really got it bad and Adaware really fixed it good. I dont think I will be having any other issues again!

    Cons

    To be fair Im not too keen on having to have one of these in the first place. Push came to shove and Adaware isnt a problem like i thought it would

    January 20, 2015  |   By nodoubterhomerunnss

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    I bought my computer from a classified ad in the newspaper with no other information than "great computer, works great" Being a good person I did not doubt the seller, boy was I wrong. This computer was full of every single virus! Adaware found 217 infected files! Gross!

    Cons

    I will never purchase without trying.

    Summary

    I will never purchase without trying... Adaware will let you do just that.

    "I thought it was all over"

    January 20, 2015  |   By lockedandloaded9mm

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    My computer was about to go... it was extremely slow and unimaginably horrible to try playing a simple web game. AdAware was the solution, downloaded the install file on my laptop then transferred it over to my computer and voila! it installed and corrected all issues.

    Cons

    It is an old computer so it runs slow. but A lot faster than before

    Summary

    Helped me save a computer I thought was gone forever.

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    My wife has complained to me every day about how slow our home computer is running. I decided to finally take a look at it and there it was, a giant process eating away at 90% of the CPU. AdAware is a product I use away from home so I put it to the challenge, rest assured it was the perfect fix! no more complaints!

    Cons

    Now i have to install this on every computer I have`

    Summary

    Happy wife, happy life.
