"My favorite free antivirus for years."

March 27, 2015  |  By Fierro-Gg

I still think it is the best antivirus that is not slow or resourceful on a computer that is old or new.

Cons

The only thing I don't like the toolbar.

Summary

Free Ad-aware is great...I don't need other antivirus

"It is working very well."

March 27, 2015  |  By Coggins-J84

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

Pros

I look for products that just work. This is one that I have started using on some of the refurbished computers that I make up. It is not a memory hog. I particularly like the real time protection and free game mode.

Cons

It sometimes asks me if I want to upgrade

Summary

Excellent in detecting and removing malware. viruses, trojans etc.

"Simply Great..."

March 26, 2015  |  By eyevarun

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

Pros

It removes dangerous viruses, even adwares, which other free products like Microsoft Security Essentials fail to... Maybe we would hesitate to uninstall MSE, but at least can install this one too, and get safe...

Cons

No Cons Really...

"Runs quickly & efficiently."

March 26, 2015  |  By chmithhte

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

Pros

Found viruses that AVG missed. Fast scan times after the initial scan. Built-in guard that scans files in realtime when reading and writing to the hard drive, preventing malicious files during writing.

Cons

Free software that offers better protection than paid software. Nuff said.
