Adaware Review – Does Ad-Aware Really Work?

Adware is a form of malware that can be downloaded onto your computer unknowingly. It will then track you to see what you are searching for and then display ads that are related to the search results. This could lead to a large number of unwanted advertisements that can be distracting and slow down your computer. It can also pose serious security as well as health and privacy threats to your health and security. Adware is a tool that can take your personal information and sell it to marketers.

Lavasoft the company behind Adaware has been developing antivirus software for years and is a reputable company. It is a simple installation process and doesn’t require you remove your current antivirus. Once you’ve installed it, you can perform a quick, comprehensive, or custom scan and update the product by accessing the main dashboard.

There are three plans offered with adaware: free, Pro and Total. The free plan includes real-time protection, download security however it does not include the ad blocker. The Pro version is more extensive and includes unlimited tech support, web and email protection and a robust firewall. It also adds a file shredder, digital lock, and parental controls.
