Adaware Review – Does Adaware Really Work?

Produced by cybersecurity company Lavasoft (formerly popularly known as Ad-Aware) Adaware is a security program that aims to fight the various types of rogue applications and privacy invasions that many users aren't even aware. Adaware consists of programs that track your browsing habits, programs that hijack the start page of your browser, and apps that display annoying advertisements at the worst times. This free software comes with various options that will increase your device's security and ensure it runs smoothly.

Adaware detected most of the malware we threw its way. However, it had difficulty getting rid of certain malware. The program does have numerous useful extras such as a privacy watcher, an registry scanner, a file shredder and advanced monitoring of network. It's important to note, however, that Adaware doesn't offer as much protection as the top antivirus tools in the industry.

Adaware's participation in the AV Test lab tests resulted in a blockage of only 95. 4.4% of 0-day threats and 97% known risks. These aren't awful scores, but they certainly don't compare to the top security suites accomplish.

Adaware users looking for better performance should look into alternatives. We suggest Kaspersky, Bitdefender and others because they are known for their reliability in real-world tests. Some users might be disappointed that only users of the Pro and Total plans have access to online customer and technical support. On its website, the company provides numerous information and frequently asked questions.
