Adaware Review – Does Adaware Really Work?

Manufactured by cybersecurity provider Lavasoft (formerly popularly known as Ad-Aware) Adaware’s goal is to combat the kinds of rogue programs and privacy invasions that many consumers aren’t even aware of. It includes programs that alter your surfing patterns, courses that alter the start page of your browser and applications that show annoying advertisements at the most difficult times. The program is free and comes with numerous additional features to improve security and keep your device working efficiently.

In our tests, adaware was able to identify the majority of the malware we tried to throw at it. However, it had trouble removing some, however. It also comes with useful features, including a privacy monitor and registry scanner. It also includes an advanced file shredder, monitoring of networks, and the privacy watch. It’s worth noting however, that adaware can’t offer as much protection as some of industry’s leading antivirus tools.

Adaware’s participation in the AV Test tests in the lab resulted in the blocking of just 95. 4percent of the 0-day risks and 97% known risks. They’re not terrible however they don’t compare to the most powerful security suites accomplish.

Users who want adaware to work better, should consider alternatives. We suggest Kaspersky, Bitdefender and others because they are known for their reliability and effectiveness in real-world testing. Some users might be disappointed that only customers of the Pro and Total plans have access to online technical and customer support. On its website, the company has various information and frequently asked questions.
