Adaware is a product by cybersecurity provider Lavasoft, (formerly known as Ad-Aware) It was created to combat the types of privacy-related threats and rogue applications that many users are unaware. This includes programs that path your surfing patterns, courses that alter your browser’s start page and applications that display irritating ads at the most difficult times. This program is free and comes with various options that will increase your device’s security and ensure it runs smoothly.

Adaware was able to detect the majority of malware we threw its way. However, it was unable to assist in getting rid of some malware. The program includes a few useful extras, like a privacy monitor and registry scanner. It also comes with a file shredder, advanced monitoring of networks, and an privacy watch. It’s worth noting, however, that Adaware doesn’t provide as much protection as the industry’s leading antivirus tools.

The last time adaware participated in AV-Test lab tests, it managed to block only ninety-five. The threat rate was 4% for 0-day threats and 97% of known threats. These aren’t bad numbers but they’re not close to the best security suites.

Adware users who want to perform better should consider the alternatives. We recommend Kaspersky, Bitdefender and others because they are known for their reliability in real-world testing. Also, only Pro and Total plan users receive access to online technical and customer support, which can be a bit disappointing to certain users. The company does provide a variety of information and frequently asked questions on its website, but.
