    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    The cost of keeping our computers virus free has gotten a bit out of hand. Thank God for Ad-aware because I don't know much about computers but I do know ad-aware keeps mine clean & safe. Getting started is really easy and after the first scan my computer started working better right away.

    Cons

    The new tool bar was confusing.

    Summary

    Great protection for free.
