Adaware Review – Does Adaware Really Work?

Published in 22 de outubro de 2023 by

Adaware is a product by cybersecurity provider Lavasoft, (formerly known as Ad-Aware) is designed to combat the types of malware and privacy infringements that many users are unaware. It includes programs that alter your surfing habits, courses that hijack the start page of your browser and apps that display annoying advertising at the most unsettling times. This free software comes with a number of options that will increase your device’s security and ensure it runs smoothly.

In our tests, adaware was able to detect most of the malware we put at it. It had trouble getting rid of some, however. The program does include many useful features like a privacy monitor, a registry scanner, file shredder, and advanced network monitoring. Adaware isn’t the same level of protection as most popular antivirus software.

The last time adaware was a participant in AV-Test lab tests, it was able to block only ninety five. 4% of 0-day threats and 97% of known threats. They’re not bad however they’re not even far from the top security suites.

Users who want adaware to perform better should think about alternatives. We would recommend Kaspersky and Bitdefender both of which are well-known for their reliability in real-world tests. Additionally only Pro and Total plan users receive access to online technical and customer support, which can be a bit disappointing for some users. On its website, the business provides numerous information and frequently asked questions.
