"Best Free Antivirus Available!"

August 31, 2015  |  By jonastick

 |  Version: Ad-Aware Free Antivirus + 11.8.586.8535

Pros

After paying for Norton for so long I decided to try Ad-aware and I must admit, my computer seems to running better. The protection is always on and whenever I scan my computer I get a lot more results than previously.

Cons

I've got nothing but good things to say.

Summary

Finally some real defense against viruses.
