    "Must have on my laptop"

    September 16, 2014   |   By HelenKMorris88

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.3.6321

    Pros

    I bring my laptop everywhere... my whole life is in that thing! Can't afford to reformat my drive when it gets infected so I searched for a robust and most importantly - free - antivirus and antispyware software. The one that came most recommended was ad aware by lavasoft. I installed it as a preventitive measure so I haven't seen it deal with any viruses for the last few months since i've installed it. That could only be a good thing the way I see it.

    Cons

    No viruses to report as of late.

    Summary

    What more can I say ? I guess just that it works well from what I can see.

    "Simplified my life a bit"

    September 16, 2014   |   By TiffanyLSteelman

    Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.3.6321

    Pros

    between having to worry about the kids running around the house and all my other chores, the last thing I want to do is have to deal with an infected computer. Seeing as how my kids use the computer for their homework and playing games daily, it was enevitable. I called my husband at work for advice, he suggested downloading the software he uses on his work laptop - Lavasoft Ad Aware, which I did. After the first scan and clean it found something like 32 infections! Holy crap ! I feel better knowing this is installed with my kids using the computer every afternoon.

    Cons

    It was actually pretty simple so nothing negative to report

    Summary

    The family computer now runs way quicker and smoother. Wasn't all that hard to figure out how to use. I'd recommend this !
