Ad-Aware Free Antivirus+

Ad-Aware Free features real-time anti-malware protection, rootkit protection, and community-driven initiatives. Ad-Aware Free Antivirus+ now includes the following features that were, up to now, reserved for our paid products: Gaming (silent) mode, Advanced Rootkit Protection, Enhanced Real-Time Protection, Download protection to block malicious files before they are written to disk.

"Adawareis virus , installs crap we want gone, cannot uninstall"

Never seen a worse piece of software.

First it eats up 800 mb, slows the pc to a crawl and adds errors galore. Once you realize there was no benefit to ad-aware and try to remove it is when the real fun begins, it; does not even try to uninstall anything it just suggest you reboot over and over which does not help, so a teadious manual removal is needed to remove all the garbage and useless bloat this program installs, I never saw a single benefit from it in fact it installs exactly what we install it to remove without even asking.

Pros
  • I found no value whatsoever
Cons
  • ahem , everything !
  • It installs the stuff we install it to remove, itself cannot uninstall , slow the pc down
  • Only install ad-aware if you want to tear out all your hair and smash you pc to bits.
