"How did they find out! <br />How did they find out!"

February 01, 2015  |  By purelumbermornings

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

Pros

I did my best to shelter my kids from the internet but they are now old enough to have their own ideas and I won't tell you what goes on in a child's mind. Adaware keeps them away from their crazy imaginations.

Cons

Kids are tricky! Hide your password:))

Summary

Worked great and monitors when I'm not home.

"Consistent updates"

February 01, 2015  |  By ChristieandMark

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.5.202.7299

Pros

Anti virus software has to be up to date with definitions. I find that Ad-Aware does just that with constant updates that keeps you up to date and away from what's out there.

Cons

If it doesn't automatically update you can do it yourself

Summary

I like how it works and cleans.
