Lavasoft the company that developed adaware, has been developing antivirus software for a long time and is a legitimate business. The program is simple to install and does not require you to delete your existing antivirus. Once you’ve installed it, you can run a quick, complete or custom scan, and update the program via the main dashboard.

There are three plans to choose from with Adaware: free, Pro and Total. The free plan provides real-time protection and download protection but does not include ad blocking. The Pro version provides unlimited tech support, web and email security and a robust fire wall. It also includes an electronic lock, parental control and a file shredder.

These results may seem good, but they are not that impressive when compared to the leaders in the industry. Both the Pro and Total versions of this antivirus are backed by a 30-day money back guarantee.
