Adaware Review – Is Adaware Total Worth Buying?

Adware is a form of malware that isn’t quite as dangerous as system-destroying virus or data-harvesting spyware. However, it’s equally annoying and invasive. It’s also often used to carry out unwanted tasks on your device, such as recording the locations you visit and displaying advertising tailored to specific locations. This is an excellent way for authors of adware to earn money without having to sell their product directly.

Contrary to other products, Adaware Review offers only Windows protection – the free version does not even support Mac or iOS devices. It only offers 24/7 technical support to users of the Total and Pro packages. The basic package comes with real-time anti-virus and behavioral monitoring, as well as automatic downloads and a robust fire wall. It does not include protection for web and email, or any other extras such as a file shredder.

The software did well in the lab tests of AV-test. It was able to remove all known threats it tested against and block 97% of 0-day attacks. These numbers are impressive, but not as impressive as those of the leading security suites.

Adaware Total is currently 30 percent more expensive than other competitors. It’s because the company chosen to stop offering different levels of protection and instead, bundle their tools into a single package. While this means that you’ll only have one license, it will provide access to an array of privacy and PC maintenance tools, such as the removal of tracking cookies optimization tools that speed up Windows boot times, and the ability to disable apps from accessing your microphone or camera.
