    "Excellent PC protection."

    October 18, 2014  |   By Sam-narvaez

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    Overall good antivirus with many features and options. Real time protection and customized scans keep my PC clean without any incoveniences. I also love the automatic updates, safe browsing and game mode. You have to pay for these features with other antiviruses.

    Cons

    The only cons is that I sometimes have to find and delete the infected files myself.

    Summary

    Very quick with many useful features.

    Better than my old antivirus. The controls are simple, catches all the bad stuff I love it. It even lets me know when an email or website is not safe. I was able to fix my PC all by myself.

    Cons

    Don't thing there any.

    Summary

    I'm happy I got this program.

    "No problems so far"

    October 18, 2014  |   By MidwestStations42

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    Best free security suite a consumer can get their hands on. Works flawlessly in the background and protects you from those nasty drive by downloads while blocking pop ups and viruses in real time. Ad Aware also does a pretty nifty job at updating itself without intervention.

    Cons

    Used others in the past and had many complaints about them, but in comparison, those security suites were a joke!

    Summary

    Very well balanced and tuned for any computer and user.

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    Free and very detailed anti virus solution that can cure any computer of an infection either by virus , spyware or any other sort of malware. I really thought this was simple and quick to install and use. I don't see myself trying another anti virus in the future.

    Cons

    Hasn't been stumped by a virus yet

    Summary

    The best cure for any computer illness

    I used to pay for antivirus programs. Not anymore, get ad-aware. It's free, so easy to use and deletes all viruses.

    I can't complain it's free and does a better job than the last antivirus I paid for.

    Summary

    This is better than some paid antivirus.
