    "Network secure"

    December 25, 2014  |   By AAtownsendroofing

    Version: Ad-Aware 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    Who knew you needed a password to your internet when you live in a rural area. My internet was running slow and I kept getting monthly internet bills that were a lot higher than usual. I was unable to resolve the issue over the phone, so my sister told me about AdAware and how it had an application to filter your network traffic, one night I was on my laptop and an alert told me someone had connected to my internet! I found out who it was and since never hads the issue.

    Cons

    I didnt know this even existed

    Summary

    five star great work

    "Job done... Slowly"

    December 25, 2014  |   By Mikewhaatmikewho

    Version: Ad-Aware 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    I know my computer is a little slow but Adaware took a while to complete its scan and my computer did not sound like it enjoyed it one bit. But on the plus side, once it was finally done, my computer felt completely faster for applications and browsing. .

    Cons

    When running a scan it slows me down a whole lot

    Summary

    Probably my computer, but still slow for me

    "Please keep me safe"

    December 25, 2014  |   By Jamezjamezjamez2

    Version: Ad-Aware 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    After being a victim of identity theft I was very vigilant in picking the software that would protect my computer. I chose Ad-Aware because it actually provides you with identity theft protection if you live in the US. Works great at keeping away malware and viruses from the moment you install Ad-Aware.

    Cons

    Took me a while to find the complete package

    Summary

    Virus protection and identity protection, great features.

    "I had to give in"

    December 24, 2014  |   By Sarabelle822

    Version: Ad-Aware 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    I always avoided getting an anti virus software because I always thought they slowed down the computer processes way too much. After losing a bet to a friend that he can just go into my computer and open my cd drive remotely, I just had to give in. I downloaded AdAware and he hasnt been able to get back in ever since! Also to my surprise, AdAware has a gaming mode feature that I can turn on so I dont get any alerts that slow me down while I play.

    Cons

    Im still skeptical of all these programs but I do feel safer now, at least on my computer:)

    Version: Ad-Aware 11.5.202.7299

    Pros

    AdAware at the beginning was a little difficult for me as it was my first anti virus program that i had to take care of myself.

    Cons

    slow learner, but with the right direction i got it going

    Summary

    If you need help just ask for it!
