"Good Antivirus kit"

November 23, 2014  |  By NerdyTroglodyte

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

Pros

A kit that works as well as this is a rare find. ITs a full fledged antimalware that shoots down any threat in sight without so much as a struggle. Prompts are never annoying like upgrade offers, you only see prompts that matter like virus alerts.

Cons

Free doesn't mean undermined protection.

Summary

If you didn't already have an antivirus that you like, get Ad Aware

Pros

Ad Aware has never detected a virus it couldn't handle and delete. Its blocked Trojans, Spyware and a bunch of other malware from taking control of my computer. UI is easy to configure and learn.

Cons

How is this free?

Summary

Deadly antivirus

"No better AV"

November 22, 2014  |  By RogueTravels

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.4.6792.0

Pros

No better AV for computer security and reliability. Barely notice it's there cause it only alerts me when a virus or something suspicious is found.

Cons

Nothing I know of

Summary

Been around since 1999 and still kickin it, seems like Ad Aware has climbed the ranks of AVs and made its way into my computer 15 years later.
