    "BE Very Careful, Do NOT Download this Software Before r"

    March 14, 2015  |   By rlp_61

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    IT Seems to work ok, but I got bored with it.
    This crap will Not completely UN-Install If you try.
    I have tried un-installing though programs/Features, 3 different Forced Un-Install Programs. 3 or 4 Virus and malware Programs, I've tried searching for this un-installer on my pc.
    I tried RE-Installing it and force remove it.
    No matter what I've Done to get rid of this Completely I have been unable to Fully Delete it.
    Every Time I start my PC or click one of my documents It tries to re-Install itself.
    Unfortunately I found out after the fact that MANY people are having the same problem.
    Like It said, This seems to find a lot of junk on my pc.
    But Unless you want to keep it for awhile, I would NOT Download this.
    There is plenty of other Very good software from c-net, for free.
    This One I'll have to give A HUGE Thumb Down...!

    Cons

    As Described Above

    Summary

    If You Ever Want to Completely Remove This Software Be Prepared to Spend several hours, If Not Days Searching, Deleting, scanning, Shredding, Re-Installing And Swallowing Xanax And Valium.

    Can't think of any.

    "Thank you for an great antivirus."

    March 13, 2015  |   By Jesse75peele

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    Easy to install and virtually no setup effort required. The interface is simple enough. Scans are pretty fast, but what makes this great is the added features like game mode and safe browsing. You usually have to pay to features like that. Ad-aware includes them with the free version. Thank you very much!

    Cons

    Haven't encountered any problem so far.

    Summary

    It's really good at protecting my computer.

    "Incredibly resourceful."

    March 13, 2015  |   By Mi95burns

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    I installed it and forgot about it. It updates itself and I can see all that it did during the day in a log. It doesn't annoy me with constant alerts. In my opinion it is the best and very light on your computer.

    Cons

    I've got no complaints about this one.

    Summary

    Fantastic little virus checker.

    "This program gets it done."

    March 13, 2015  |   By Harkin-randy

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    I was using Mcafee with adware as my backup. Eventually I just kept ad-aware. Compared to the other one, it found everything. Now I only use ad-aware and since I uninstalled Mcafee my PC is running faster.

    Cons

    Great, but a few false positives.

    Summary

    Maybe a little too good...
