Adware is a type of malware. It’s not as malicious as viruses that damage systems or spyware that gathers data however, it can be as disruptive and annoying.

This is a great way for creators of adsware to earn money without having to sell their product directly.
Adaware review, in contrast to other similar products does not offer Windows protection. The free version is not compatible with Mac or iOS devices. It also offers 24/7 technical support for users of its Pro and Total packages. The basic package comes with real-time anti-virus and behavior monitoring along with automatic downloading and a robust fire wall. It doesn’t offer email and web protection, nor other features such as a file shredder.
In AV-test’s lab tests the software performed very well. It was able to remove all known threats it tested against and block 97% of zero-day attacks. These results are impressive, but not as impressive as most powerful security suites.
Adaware Total is currently 30 percent more expensive than competition. This is because the company has decided to stop offering different levels of protection, and instead bundles all their tools into one package. This means that you’ll only be able to purchase one license, it does provide access to a vast array of privacy and PC maintenance tools, including the elimination of tracking cookies optimization tools that speed up Windows boot times, as well as the ability to disable apps from accessing your microphone or camera.
