Description

Ad-Adware free antivirus+ is a program by Lavasoft which is designed to protect a user’s computer from spyware and viruses. It was initially developed in 1999 in order to show when a computer’s IP was being tracked by a website.

This progressed to the user being able to block the bugs and ads, and now the program does this in the background without the user even knowing. As of 2013, version 10 of the software is available in 5 versions; Free Antivirus+, Personal Security, Pro Security, Total Security and Business Security. Ad-Adware has over 450 million downloads, making it the most downloaded security software.

Features

Ad-Adware is a fantastic program, particularly as it is available for free. Some features of the software include detecting spyware, computer viruses, Trojans, tracking components, as well as many other things which you would expect from antivirus software. Ad-Adware free antivirus+ is incredibly fast, providing you with the results you want quickly. It scans all downloads immediately before they have chance to gain access to the computer and has automatic threat updates, allowing you to surf the internet without having to worry.
An excellent feature of Ad-Adware is that it also monitors your credit report, allowing you to protect your personal data. It won’t disturb your computer activity as there is a silent mode protection, ensuring there are no disturbances if you are watching a film or playing a game. You can also choose for Ad-Adware to only scan the files or folders you want directly from their original location; this is known as pin point scanning.

Comparison

Ad-Adware free antivirus+ has a huge advantage over many of its competitors in that it offers its services for free, which many users will be attracted to. For a free piece of security software, the benefits are huge. Norton and McAfee offer similar services yet you have to pay for these – this software provides all the necessary security to enable safe internet usage. For the basic internet user who doesn’t require advanced internet security, Ad-Adware is the perfect solution – however, you can even upgrade to paid services within Ad-Adware if you like, such as Identity Monitoring, making the software more flexible than others which only have the paid option.

Conclusion

Ad-Adware free antivirus+ is a great piece of software which I would definitely recommend downloading – after all, it’s free, so you have nothing to lose!
