Adaware Review – Does Adaware Really Work?

Adaware, which is a product of cybersecurity company Lavasoft, (formerly known as Ad-Aware), is designed to stop the kinds of malware and privacy infringements of which the majority of users are not aware. Adaware is a collection of programs that track your browsing patterns, courses that alter the browser start page and apps that display irritating advertising at the worst times. The program is free and comes with an array of additional features to boost security and ensure that your device is running efficiently.

Adaware identified the majority of malware that we tossed its way. It had difficulty removing some, however. The program comes with a few useful extras, like a privacy monitor and registry scanner. It also includes an advanced file shredder, network monitoring, as well as a privacy monitor. Adaware isn’t the same level of protection as best antivirus software.

The last time adaware took part in AV-Test lab tests, it managed to block only ninety-five. 4.4% of threats that are not a day old and 97% of known risks. They’re not bad but they’re far from being near the top security suites.

Users who want adaware to perform better should think about the alternatives. We particularly recommend Kaspersky and Bitdefender that are known for their reliability and performance in real-world tests. Some users may be disappointed that only users of the Pro and Total plans have access to online technical and customer support. The company does offer a range of information and frequently asked questions on its website.
