Adaware is a product by cybersecurity provider Lavasoft, (formerly known as Ad-Aware) It was created to stop the kinds of malware and privacy infringements that many users are not aware. This includes programs that reroute your surfing habits, courses that block the start page of your browser and applications that show annoying advertising at the most unsettling times. This free software comes with several features that can increase your device’s security, and ensure it runs smoothly.
Adaware recognized the majority of malware that we threw its way. However, it had trouble removing some malware, however. The program does include many useful features like a privacy monitor, a registry scanner, a file shredder, and advanced monitoring of networks. Adaware doesn’t offer as much protection as the leading antivirus software.
Adaware’s previous participation in AV Test lab tests resulted in a blockage of just 95. 4% of 0-day risks and 97% of known threats. These aren’t bad scores however they don’t compare to the best security suites can accomplish.
Anyone who wants adware to perform better should consider the alternatives. We would recommend Kaspersky and Bitdefender both of which are well-known for their reliability in real-world tests. Additionally only Pro and Total plan users get access to online technical and customer support, which could be a little disappointing for some users. On its website, the company offers various information and frequently asked questions.
