Adware is one type of malware. It is not as destructive as viruses that damage systems or spyware that gathers data however, it can be as annoying and intrusive. Adware can also perform unwanted tasks on your device. For example it could record the locations you visit to show ads that are specific to these areas. Adware authors can earn money by displaying targeted ads without having to sell their product directly.

Adaware review is, unlike other similar products it only provides Windows protection. The free version does not work with Mac or iOS devices. It only offers 24/7 technical support to paid users of the Pro and Total packages. The basic-only package gives you real-time antivirus and behavior monitoring as well as automatic scans of downloaded files and a strong firewall. It doesn’t offer email and web protection, or any extras like a file shredder.

In AV-test’s lab tests, the software performed well. It was able to eliminate all known threats and block 97% attacks of 0-day. These scores are impressive but not as high as the most powerful security suites.

Adaware Total is currently 30% more expensive than the competitors. That’s because the company has taken the decision to stop offering multiple tiers of protection and instead bundle their tools into a single package. It means that you only get one license but can access a large collection of PC maintenance and privacy options, including the removal of tracking cookie optimization tools that speed up Windows boot time and the ability to block apps from accessing your microphone or camera.
