Adaware, a product of cybersecurity company Lavasoft, (formerly known as Ad-Aware) It was created to combat the types of malicious apps and privacy invasions of which a lot of consumers are not aware. Adaware includes programs that track your browsing habits, applications that reroute the browser’s homepage and applications that display annoying ads at the most inappropriate times. This free application comes with a number of options that will increase your device’s security and ensure it runs smoothly.

Adaware was able to detect the majority of malware we tossed its way. However, it had trouble eliminating certain malware. It also comes with useful extras, including a privacy monitor and registry scanner. It also comes with a file shredder, advanced network monitoring, as well as an privacy watch. It’s important to note, though, that adaware doesn’t provide quite as much protection as some of the top antivirus tools in the market.

Adaware’s last participation in AV Test tests in the lab resulted in a blockage of just 95. 4percent of the 0-day risks and 97% of known threats. They’re not terrible however they don’t compare to the best security suites can do.

Users who want adaware to perform better, should look at alternatives. We recommend Kaspersky, Bitdefender and others due to their reliability in real-world testing. Some users may be disappointed that only customers of the Pro and Total plans have access to online customer and technical support. The company does provide numerous information and Frequently Asked Questions on its website, however.
