Adaware Review – Does Adaware Really Work?

Adaware, a product from cybersecurity provider Lavasoft, (formerly known as Ad-Aware), is designed to fight the various types of malicious apps and privacy invasions of which many consumers are not aware. Adaware is a suite of programs that monitor your browsing patterns, courses that alter the browser start page and applications that display annoying advertising at the worst times. The program is free and comes with an array of additional security features that will help you stay safe and ensure your device runs smoothly.

In our tests, adaware was able to detect most of the malware we tossed at it. It did have trouble removing some, however. It does come with many useful features such as a privacy monitor an adaware registry scanner, file shredder and advanced network monitoring. It’s worth noting, however, that adaware does not offer the same level of protection as some of the industry’s leading antivirus tools.

The last time adaware was a participant in AV-Test lab tests, it managed to block only ninety five. 4percent of the 0-day risks and 97% of known threats. They’re not terrible however they aren’t as good as the most effective security suites can do.

Adaware users seeking better performance should consider alternatives. We recommend Kaspersky and Bitdefender both of which are well-known for their reliability and performance in real-world tests. Also only Pro and Total plan users get access to online technical and customer support, which could be a little disappointing for certain users. The company does provide numerous information and frequently asked questions on its website.
