Pros

Seems to do the job

Cons

Not sure how it got on my computer! I am usually pretty careful when searching and downloading stuff, but this appeared. I am thinking it came with youtube downloader, but not positive.

Summary

Only had it for a couple of days, but seems to be OK

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Web Companion 1.1.922.1860

Pros

pros? probably yes you know you have to avoid lavasoft as a company after this

Cons

BROWSER WAS HIJACKED
I do not understand where all these 5star reviews are from
i installed only to have my browser hijacked to open new pages with bing and my usual search engines replaced with only bing
this is fraud
the title says ad aware but you get hit by ads installing this, before even activating it , wasting my time to fix the issues

Summary

fraud
download only if you like ads
i'm giving 1/2 a star because i have to

"100% protected all the time"

July 06, 2015  |  By CookieAlerts

2015-07-06 13:41:10  |  By CookieAlerts

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Web Companion 1.1.922.1860

Pros

Web security is always on the browser so almost everything I do online is checked. The rest, is caught by Ad-aware. The 2 combined means I'm always protected.

Cons

Not a thing.

Summary

Works great with my antivirus.

"Best security i've yet to try"

2015-05-14 13:22:54  |  By Shabbyginger

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Web Companion 1.1.922.1860

Pros

I use my computer for work all day long, cannot afford to lose my information to malware so together with my antivirus and web companion Ive steered clear of all online threats this far.

Cons

I don't want to leave all my web surfing to chance, so because my antivirus doesn't cut it for internet explorer I want that extra insurance only web companion provides.

"OUCH. Browsers misbehaving ever since"

April 24, 2015  |  By kelsbo01

2015-04-24 05:31:46  |  By kelsbo01

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Web Companion 1.1.922.1860

Pros

None that I can see.

Cons

It was installed involuntarily as part of the Ad-Aware removal tool (general check no adware found).

ESET identified it as a variant of Win32/Packed.Komodia.A, a potentially unwanted application - unable to clean.

It seems to behave in the same way as the AdWare it is trying to stop so I tried uninstalling as my browsers would hang the PC for several minutes.

Uninstall left LavasoftTcpService.dll behind and registry entries, Browsers won't function properly without the file.

Summary

Uninstallable Adware, Own Goal IMHO and left me with a headache of an uninstall task.

"Free web protection"

April 21, 2015  |  By RosaOrte82

2015-04-21 08:26:29  |  By RosaOrte82

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Web Companion 1.1.922.1860

Pros

Not much out there offers antiphishing but nothing out there warns you if another program it trying to change my search provider or home page.

Cons

It's only got a few features and each one of them are executed well.

Summary

The only free antiphishing software that also protects my browser from unauthorized changes.
