    "Finds any issues quickly!"

    October 21, 2014  |   By BOjaBoja2

    Version: Ad-aware 11.4.6792.0

    Pros

    Founnd malware that AVG, AVAST and Macafee did not after months of scans with other software, I decided to give up and just download Ad Aware after a friend told me it helped him get rid of trojans that were slowing down his machine and remained undetected with Windows Defender. Ad Aware caught 7 suspicious files that have been on my computer this whole time without me knowin !! God knows that information they were after. Removal was quick and easy and I run a deep scan at least once every 2 days now to make sure i'm always on point!

    Cons

    The con is that I didn't know Ad Aware even existed before.
