Adaware, which is a product of cybersecurity firm Lavasoft, (formerly known as Ad-Aware) is designed to stop the kinds of malware and privacy infringements that many users are not aware. Adaware is a suite of programs that monitor your browsing habits, applications that reroute the start page of your browser, and applications that display annoying advertisements at the most inconvenient times. The program is free and comes with an array of extra features to increase security and keep your device working efficiently.
In our tests, adaware was able to recognize the majority of the malware we tossed at it. However, it had difficulty eliminating certain malware. It does come with a number of helpful extras such as a privacy monitor a registry scanner, file shredder, and advanced monitoring of networks. It’s worth noting, though, that adaware doesn’t offer the same level of protection as some of top antivirus tools in the industry.
Adaware’s previous participation in AV Test lab tests resulted in the blocking of just 95. The 4% of risks that are 0-day and 97% known risks. These aren’t awful scores but they don’t compare to the top security suites do.
Adaware users who want better performance should consider alternatives. We recommend Kaspersky, Bitdefender and others because they are known for their reliability in real-world tests. Also only Pro and Total plan users have www.programworld.org/zemana-antimalware-review access to online technical and customer support, which may be a bit disappointing to some users. On its website, the company offers many information as well as frequently asked questions.
