    "Can't use program because it fights with other programs"

    December 17, 2012  |   By wolf1943

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 10.4.47.4163

    Pros

    Easy to install. Liked the older version much better as it was compatible with most other programs.

    Cons

    Fights with other antivirus programs so I can't use it.

    Summary

    Go back to your older version of the program.

    "Used To Love Now Loathe"

    December 14, 2012  |   By bernard_ric

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 10.4.47.4163

    Pros

    Struggling to think of any.

    Cons

    I have used Ad-Aware to keep my PC safe and clean from adware for longer than I care to admit. After I downloaded the latest from the CNet site I was horrified. Problems left right and centre assailed me including a Browser that took over my computer without warning.

    All I want is a program to keep me free of adware not an all singing all dancing security package.

    It took days to rid my PC of stuff that was added along with Ad-Aware.

    Summary

    Sadly it is me signing off from Ad-Aware after many happy years of use.

    Pros

    Two amazing things:
    1. Working togheter with another AV - That's something;
    2. New cached scan: first full scan, it took me one hour 35 min. I ran another full scan, same day, same computer...9 minutes. Tell me something against please!

    Cons

    Nothing. It is free and good.

    Summary

    Try it people! You'll like it!

    "Superb Update !"

    December 11, 2012  |  

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 10.4.47.4163

    Pros

    Ad-Aware 10.4 now plays well with other installed antivirus programs. I tested with Avria, Avast, AVG & Webroot ... flawless. Good work Lavasoft. It's now faster at full scans.
    From Lavasoft site: "Ad-Aware 10.4 automatically detects other antivirus and installs in On-Demand mode for conflict-free operation"

    Cons

    Still have to pay for Pro version for extra protection.

    Summary

    Lavasoft is constantly improving Ad-Aware with every update ... Good work Lavasoft !

    "Fed-up of painfully slow Ad-Aware"

    December 10, 2012  |   By Mycroft Holmes

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 10.4.47.4163

    Pros

    Previous versions seemed to find tracking cookies others didn't

    Cons

    Slow, slow, slow. Unticked extra features, which it still tried to install.

    Summary

    I'll stick with MBAM & SuperAntiSpyware thanks.
