"Pretty happy with Ad Aware"

November 25, 2014  |  By Kromnics

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

Pros

Eliminates all spyware, adware and trojans without any exceptions
- Software is totally free
- Easy to comprehend and use
- Automatic updates
- Speedy scanning

Cons

I don't see how anyone could possible dislike this.

Summary

The free version of Ad Aware offers the same level of security that the paid one does minus the cool premium features you'd get in the Pro version. I know this because i liked Ad Aware so much, I upgraded to the Pro version.

"Nothings faster or more useful"

November 25, 2014  |  By Chiquitair

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

Pros

No added weight on my system noticed since Ad Aware was installed. Scans are very precise and only alert your to real infections or suspicious files without any false positives. Layout is also very intuitive and simple.

Cons

How come there isn't a version for Linux?

"My favorite one!"

November 25, 2014  |  By G0dzillapi

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

Pros

Finally a free antivirus program that has helped get rid of the viruses that took over my computer. It was completely riddled with viruses that made the use of my computer unbearable! I thought I was going to have to trash it until I found Ad Aware. This program has saved me time, money and a lot of stress by being completely dependable in a situation where it was faced with what seemed to be insurmountable infections.

Cons

Should be giving this 10 stars not 5
