    "The best protection for your computer"

    April 18, 2012  |   By AydenYoung


    Ad-Aware stops all viruses, adware and spyware from ever getting into your computer


    There are no cons


    Ad-Aware places a lock and key on your computer and the sensitive files within. As soon as I was done building my first computer, I installed Ad-Aware on it and have never been infected with a single piece of malware since. When I had built my other computer in my dorm room, I unfortunately did not install Ad-Aware on it and when I finally managed to get around to installing it, I found over 50 malicious items on my PC that my other security software did not detect. My heartfelt suggestion is to download this program on your PC the minute you connect to the internet. In fact, stop reading my review and download it now! Ad-Aware is the only program I have had on my first PC that to date, it's still unaffected by malware and runs perfectly.
