    "Nice update!"

    February 13, 2013  |   By Pennygone

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 10.4.49.4168

    Pros

    This new version feels more powerful than the previous one. More lighter on my machine. Scans are pretty quick and it works well enough alongside my other applications. I'm thinking to upgrade for pro-version!

    Cons

    Blekko it is really necessary?

    "Bottom line: protection"

    February 11, 2013  |   By Redwheels

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 10.4.49.4168

    Pros

    Good, easy, free, nice.

    Cons

    I really do not know what to say.

    Summary

    It detects trojans. I had some trojans and it found them. You should scan any file that seems suspicious that enters your computer. The real time detection does find viruses. This program does catch most bad stuff. Great program. It's very low on memory, and doesn't slow your computer much. I used Ad-Aware for a quite a long time. If ad-aware can't delete it for you, you can manually delete it. It healed my computer of the trojans though, so I didn't have to do that. Keeps computer clean.As I said, you can still do stuff in your computer while working because it not takes to much from your computer memory.

    "A good hunter."

    February 11, 2013  |   By TheUnit00

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 10.4.49.4168

    Pros

    For real, this program worked and works for me like a hunter against the spyware and viruses.I'm a home user and this software its just fine. Maybe for the advanced users the program it is not good enough. I don't know , is just a guess.

    Cons

    None I can find so far!

    Summary

    If you want free use this one or avast or avira. If you want the best, you have to pay for the best and then you go for Norton Internet Security.

    "Customer service."

    February 8, 2013  |   By moosfred

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 10.4.49.4168

    Pros

    The program it's good but what I want to talk about it is the customer service of Lavasoft.After installation, I got the BSOD, and of course, like millions of people in this world I started to blame the last software installed.I contact them and they gave me a real support to resolve my computer trouble. On Facebook I found another good forum. Good support Lava! Contact them and you'll see!

    Cons

    I'm happy with it!

    Summary

    Ad-Aware is no doubt a good program with a couple of nice features.

    Summary

    Does not slow down my desktop, minimal memory occupation, fast response and easy to use.
