Adware is a form of malware that’s not quite as sinister as system-destroying viruses or spyware that harvest data, but it can be equally perplexing and invasive. Adware is also used to perform unwelcome tasks on your device. For example it can be able to record the places you go to display ads specifically targeted to these areas. Adware creators can earn money through the display of targeted advertisements without having to sell the product directly.
Adaware review, in contrast to other competitors does not offer Windows security. The free version does not support Mac or iOS devices. It only provides 24 hour technical support to users of the Total and Pro packages. The basic package comes with real-time security and behavior monitoring, as well as automatic downloads and a robust fire barrier. However, it doesn’t include email and web protection as well as any extras like a file shredder.
The program performed well in the AV-test lab tests. It was able to eliminate all known threats and block 97% 0-day attacks. These results are impressive, but not as high as the most effective security suites.
If you opt to purchase the most expensive option, Adaware Total, it’s worth noting that it’s 30% more expensive than its competitors. This is due to the fact that the company has decided to stop offering different levels of protection, and instead bundle all of their tools into one package. This means that you only have one license but can access a wide range of PC protection and privacy options, including the removal of tracking cookies, optimization tools to speed up Windows boot time and the ability to prevent apps from accessing the camera or microphone.
