Adaware Review – Does Adaware Really Work?

Published in 22 de outubro de 2023 by

Made by cybersecurity firm Lavasoft (formerly also known as Ad-Aware) Adaware’s goal is to stop the types of rogue programs and privacy invasions that many users aren’t even aware of. Adaware is a suite of programs that monitor your browsing habits, programs that hijack the start page of your browser, and applications that show annoying ads at the most inappropriate times. This free program offers various features that can increase your device’s security, and ensure it runs smoothly.

Adaware was able to detect the majority of malware we tossed at it. It had trouble getting rid of some, however. The program comes with numerous useful extras such as a privacy monitor a registry scanner, file shredder, and advanced monitoring of networks. It is worth noting, however, that Adaware doesn’t offer the same level of security as some of the top antivirus tools in the market.

Adaware’s most recent participation in AV Test tests in the lab resulted in the blocking of just 95. 4.4% of 0-day threats and 97% known risks. These aren’t bad scores, but they certainly do not compare to the top security suites do.

Adaware users looking for better performance should consider alternatives. We recommend Kaspersky and Bitdefender, which are renowned for their reliable performance in real-world tests. Also, 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 company provides a variety information and frequently asked questions.
