Adaware Review – Does Adaware Really Work?

Adaware, which is a product of cybersecurity firm Lavasoft, (formerly known as Ad-Aware) is designed to protect users from privacy-related threats and rogue applications of which a lot of consumers are unaware. This includes programs that path your browsing habits, courses that hijack your browser’s start page and apps that display annoying advertisements at the most inconvenient times. This free application also comes with a host of additional features to improve security and keep your device running smoothly.

In our tests, adaware was able to detect the majority of malware we threw at it. However, it had a difficult time getting rid of some malware. It does come with a number of helpful extras like a privacy monitoring tool, an registry scanner, a file shredder and advanced monitoring of network. Adaware doesn’t offer as much protection as the top antivirus software.

Adaware’s previous participation in AV Test tests in the lab resulted in the blocking of only 95. 4% of 0-day risks and 97% of known risks. These aren’t bad scores, but they’re not far from the top security suites.

People who want adsware to perform better, should look at the alternatives. We particularly recommend Kaspersky and Bitdefender, which are renowned for their reliable performance in real-world tests. Also only Pro and Total plan users get access to online technical and customer support, which can be a bit disappointing for certain users. On its website, the company offers various information and frequently asked questions.
