    "Useful For Your Browser"

    March 26, 2015  |   By cleverr8rates

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    I like all parts of it, I needed this

    Cons

    Couldn't get it download, but then I figured it out

    Summary

    We do a huge amount of business stuff on our PCs, so when our project gets bungled up, we can't do the things we are acclimated to doing. This application keeps our project as we like it and as it should be. Both my companion and I value it!

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    This is the easiest anti virus software I have ever had to install, and looking at my task manager it uses far less resources than pay for use off the shelf software. Another plus that it was easy to use, just hit the button and it scans.

    Cons

    Initial scan took a little while but after that it ran smoothly

    Summary

    This free tool is among the best at protecting your computer.

    "A good, reliable product."

    March 24, 2015  |   By Allen72J

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    1] High detection
    2] Low system usage
    3] Fast scanning speed
    4] Scans web traffic

    Cons

    I don't see any cons although people complain about the toolbar. You can just take it off.

    Summary

    So to summarize it, Ad-aware is a good choice for Free-Antivirus protection, and I trust that it can protect the computer's of my family and friends without me worrying if a rogue or a worm will disable it.

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

    Pros

    Does what it says it protects you from any viruses or Trojans and malware. I like the fact that live protection is always on, it scans all incoming traffic. It comes with a damn good prevention and detection rate.

    Cons

    Haven't seen anything bad yet for a month or longer after i installed it

    Summary

    Quick to start up quick to scan and most of all effective.
