    "Awesome App - Amazing Experiences!!!"

    March 26, 2014  |   By jackssondon

    Version: Adguard 5.8

    Pros

    Free extensions, free filters, maximum ad blocking capabilities, and not to forget - online virus and malware protection!

    Cons

    Free extension itself doesn't block all ads, but with filter upgrading, it does everything!

    Summary

    Intelligent software with super fantastic features to block all rubbish ads while keeping my system secured from online threat attacks. I'm happy that I didn't end up my system with any other ad blocker. It's awesome!

    "Blocks all ads with accuracy!"

    March 24, 2014  |   By SteveMerchant

    Version: Adguard 5.8

    Pros

    Accurately blocks ads, works precisely, and kills all ads!

    Cons

    Interface not that impressive what it should be...

    Summary

    I had a wonderful experience using this software to remove ads from websites I usually visit and found that it works pretty fine with all websites (even with the ones having video ads). Simple extension also works fine with its default setting, but with relevant filter, it becomes more reliable. Overall, I'd give it 5/5.

    "Best software for blocking ads online!"

    March 21, 2014  |   By J_McMillan

    Version: Adguard 5.8

    Pros

    A quick starter with excellent performance

    Cons

    I found nothing negative about this utility.

    Summary

    Everything awesome! Although, I used almost every ad blcoker to date, but I never had this big ease with any other ad blocking software than AdGuard. It's thee best of all anti banner utilities one can find online. As per its promise, it blocks all ads and offers customization to give us more ease. Overall, it's great with all-needed elements.

    "Excellent ad blocker!"

    March 18, 2014  |   By Domelo

    Version: Adguard 5.8

    Pros

    Blocks all the ads, removes banners, works as an online threat-protection software and do wonders with its customized features.

    Cons

    Slow startup on initial basis, but works better afterwards.

    Summary

    I have never experienced such an amazing ad blocking software that not only removes ads, but it also works as an anti-banner app with the abillity to block online threats like malware and virus attacks. Frankly speaking, it's way better than both adblock and adblock plus for it never encountered any error since I started using it. Two thumbs up for it!

    "Dont waste your money! Free adblockers are just as good"

    July 16, 2012  |   By Davidsmountain

    Version: Adguard 5.3

    Pros

    NONE, to speak of!

    Cons

    See my Summary for the list.

    Summary

    After 1 yr. of using this ad blocking software, today I cancelled my renewal for another yr. and here's why:

    1.) I contacted Adguard support about problems I had, numerous times over the past year and again, just a few days ago, I never received a response back, other than an automated response.

    2.) While the ad blocking is somewhat ok, it doesn't get many types of ads, specifically within IE9 and Yahoo websites, even with full on settings.

    3.) Adguard claims loading time of pages is faster, because the ads aren't downloaded in the first place. But in fact, It takes longer for pages to load, while Adguard filters out any ads it finds. Pages loaded faster with ads!

    4.) Adguard assistant, which allows the user to target ads that are missed, doesn't always work, meaning you have have to be able to write your own ad blocking filter creation rules, GOOD LUCK!

    5.) Adguard acts as a proxy, which causes many pages and websites not to load correctly or not at all, meaning you have to either write your own filter rules or disable it, defeating it's purpose.

    6.) Uses excessive RAM and resources.

    7.) Because I never received a response back, I can only assume, Adguard support is just an empty slogan!

    8.) My advice is don't waste your money on this software, it's not truly supported, easily configured or useful. There are free ad blocking programs that do as good or a better job!

    "Excellent inexpensive ad blocker"

    July 7, 2011  |   By chingonkid

    Version: Adguard 4.2.0

    Pros

    Inexpensive, efficient, clean removal of ads, automatically updated

    Cons

    Slow to start, around 10 sec, and uses 70 Mb ram

    Summary

    Uses too much ram, adguard uses 70 mb vs 15 mb that admuncher uses. It doesn't work with some less popular browsers like Qtweb, Comet Bird, Black Hawk, etc. On the other hand it has very clean output of blocked web pages, with fast and efficient blocking, it uses the standard rules for making your custom filters and it's inexpensive
