Adaware Review – Does Adaware Really Work?

pop over to this site

Adaware, which is a product of cybersecurity firm Lavasoft, (formerly known as Ad-Aware) It was created to fight the various types of malicious apps and privacy invasions of which the majority of users are unaware. This includes programs that path your browsing habits, programs that hijack your browser start web page and applications that display irritating advertisements at the most inconvenient times. This free software also provides an array of extra features to increase security and keep your device working efficiently.

In our tests, adaware was able to detect the majority of malware we threw at it. However, it had difficulty removing certain malware. It does come with a number of helpful extras such as a privacy watcher, a registry scanner, a file shredder and advanced network monitoring. Adaware isn’t the same level of protection as most popular antivirus software.

The last time adaware participated in AV-Test lab tests, it managed to block only ninety five. 4% of 0-day threats and 97% of known threats. These aren’t bad scores however they don’t compare to the best security suites can accomplish.

Users who want adaware to perform better should think about the alternatives. We recommend Kaspersky, Bitdefender and others due to their reliability during real-world testing. Some users might be disappointed that only users of the Pro and Total plans have access to online technical and customer support. The company does offer various information and frequently asked questions on its website, though.
