Editors' Review

+
Due to a relatively small database of malware programs and lack of advanced features such as real-time protection, this antispyware application seems more like a work in progress than a finished product.

Though it quickly goes about its business, Adware Away can't identify as many offending applications as its competitors, and it fails to catch quite a few third-party programs. The main window is easy enough to understand and quite polished. You can choose the areas of your PC to scan, but the program offers no additional information on found entries and doesn't allow you to sort them. The five-day trial period also may be too short for some users to fully evaluate this application.

At the end of the day, Adware Away stands as a strictly so-so option; it won't hurt to try it out, but its bigger-name competitors offer more comprehensive levels of protection.

"Total Scam"

September 23, 2012  |  By hitchrk

 |  Version: Adware Away 4.1

Pros

None. All these positive reviews must be schills who made the product.

Cons

I ordered their "one time fix", well, first it's a pain because you have to do a scan and send them the log file, but then the E-mail they gave me is a fake address, so basically I never heard from them and wasted my money and I still have the problem. They have no phone number and their official address also returns undeliverable.

Summary

Anyone thinking there is a "free" trial don't be fooled, they just let you download the product, it does a scan, and ofcourse finds tons of things "wrong" with your computer, BUT, naturally you must pay for full version to fix them. Don't fall for their one time fix scam either (see above).
