"Never lacks protection"

June 24, 2015  |  By shadowylives

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

Pros

Top-of-the-line protection this good for free is a pretty rare site. I wish it was more common.

Cons

Hardly uses any of my PC's power but can cause my boot time to slow down by a few seconds.

Summary

So good, I sometimes forget it's there.

"Ad Aware always saves me"

June 24, 2015  |  By Valerian-Steel

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

Pros

So many times I can't even recall that would have resulted in my computer being infected with trojans and spyware from end to end if it wasn't for AdAware. It just works!

Cons

None at this point

Summary

This antivirus has really saved my butt more times than I can remember.

June 19, 2015  |  By Cardoors

"Secured up to my teeth"

June 19, 2015  |  By Epholaur

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

Pros

Hardly any internal advertising in Ad Aware which is suprising for a free program. I guess they make enough money and dont need to advertise due to a lot of users who upgrade to the pro version.

Cons

Version upgrades are frequent but the scans can bit a tiny bit slow.

Summary

Definitely my go-to antivirus of choice for the last little bit. I'd highly recommend this to others looking for free security software.

"2 years with Ad Aware and no issues"

June 19, 2015  |  By Encernco

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

Pros

2 years now and no problems with Ad Aware, it's always been sturdy and quick to act without ever leaving me stranded. It really is great!

Cons

I don't think there is a malicious email interceptor

Summary

Ad Aware has been the most resilient software I have come across in a long time.

"Flexible and reliable!"

June 16, 2015  |  By Chik-Bolt

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

Pros

Lots of updates to keep ad aware on it's toes and at the ready to block and delete any threats. 0 noticeable impact on my machine with ad aware running at full throttle. Only very minor spikes in CPU power comparable to the built in Windows calculator program.

Cons

0 complaints, this is a great little antivirus suite with everything I need

"Meets all my standards"

June 16, 2015  |  By Deloraxle

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.6.306.7947

Pros

No malicious programs can get through Ad Aware! It's robust, tough and comes built with a great barrier protecting my PC at all times.

Cons

Full scans aren't as timely as I'd like to be

Summary

Paid version is a bit too expensive but if it's anything as good as Ad Aware Free, then I might just invest in the increased security.
