Editors' Review

+

Adguard enables you to browse without the intrusion of banners, pop-ups, and other ads. You can customize its blocking to create exceptions or manually block ads the program misses.

Pros

Web browsing speed: Rich-media ads with audio and video slow down Web page loading. Adguard blocks these ads so that you can browse much more quickly.

Excellent interface: When Adguard is active, a small green shield appears in the bottom right-hand corner of your browser window. When you click it, all the primary options are at your fingertips, including manual ad blocking and the ability to see the site unblocked for 30 seconds.

Exceptions: If you do want to see ads, add a site to the exception list so Adguard won't block it.

Cons

Undo bug: In our tests, undoing an action sometimes seemed to disable the app. The icon would vanish and not reappear until we reloaded the page.

Bottom Line

If you hate ads, you'll like Adguard. It successfully blocked ads from appearing on any of the websites we tested it on.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Adguard 5.10.

"Awesome !!!"

November 29, 2015

 |  Version: Adguard for Windows 5.10.2004

Pros

- Great black Friday deal
- easy install
- Doesn't appear to slow down my computer at all and its a 2011 computer
- Simple to navigate the software

Cons

- Can't think of anything at the moment

Summary

Been using it for the past few days and for those dudes that go off the mainstream internet, this is the program to have. So far I had only two ads poop up. But a simple grab the address and you can sent if off to the computer so that they can improve it. Been a long time since I be really happy with a purchase, I think this is an outstanding tool to have for your surfing.

"The nominal cost of Ad Is well-worth it!"

 |  Version: Adguard for Windows 5.10.2004

Pros

Totally seamless for all popular Browsers! I'm using Ad Guard with Comodo Dragon, Edge, Pale Moon, Google Chrome 64, Yandex, and Opera. Its coverage and function is absolutely seamless! Totally comprehensive, complete, stable and secure!

Cons

I wish it would play Little Richard when updating.

Summary

YOU can't make a better investment in an ad blocker than Ad Guard. BTW, place markers? Forget about it! A really GREAT ad blocking app! It will even try to support some less popular browsers. I've extended by license until 2017, their prices are a bargain, their support is the best Ad Guard is totally solid, stable, and secure! It beats Ad block and the rest, but there is a very reasonable price for Ad Guard's excellent app. Buy it and you won't regret it!

"Excellent Product"

 |  Version: Adguard for Windows 5.10.2004

Pros

The software does what it claims to do. And, it is the only one that works for Windows Edge browser.

Cons

Performix is the manufacturer, a company based in Russia. Users should be cautious about relying on software from Russia or China. It's expensive, particularly considering that there are free alternatives available. What is a 'lifetime' licence worth if the company fails?

Summary

Adguard performs as advertised but caution is warranted.

"Works good....JUST DON'T BUY A MULTI-COMPUTER LICENSE!"

 |  Version: Adguard for Windows 5.10.2004

Pros

Works fine, the software really does seem to block nearly all ads no matter which website you go to or where you browse.

Cons

If you're buying a multi-computer license...pass up this software. The download is fine for the first computer. Adding a second computer to your multi-computer license is a nightmare (to say the least) and I've been unsuccessful try so far. The installation software won't download for the 2nd computer and the link to unbind your license from the first (to transfer the software to your 2nd computer) is non-existent even though it's shown on a help page.

Summary

Pass it up unless you're sure you're going to buy it for one computer only.
