Ad-Aware – Leading Spyware Protection
Ad-Aware is the antivirus software made by LavaSoft. The company released at October 2009 newest editions. Ad-Aware was first released to prevent web trackers from recording the web surfing habits of people. After ten years, Ad-Aware grew into a complete package for protecting Windows computers from Trojans, viruses, trackers and other forms of malware. While viruses evolve rapidly and hackers learn how to improve their skills to hack, Ad-Aware is doing something new as well. Ad-Aware newest anti-virus has added the new Genotype detection technology, Behavior-based heuristics detection, Rootkit removal system, Simple Mode/Advanced Mode, Lavasoft ThreatWork Alliance, Do Not Disturb Mode, The neutralizer and Download guard for Internet explorer. These are just some of the new functions and certainly there will be more.
What makes Ad-Aware different from other anti-virus applications? For one, Ad-Aware is a lightweight application that stays unobtrusively behind the scenes making sure that your computer is safe. Ad-Aware is packaged into four editions starting with Ad-Aware Free which offers real-time protection from the internet all the way to Ad-Aware Pro, featuring centralized protection of networked computers.
Ad-Aware Free does not carry any anti-virus protection but future versions of this edition will have this feature. Ad-Aware is advertisement supported and has been downloaded more than 300 million times already. Ad-Aware Free carries real-time, full featured spyware protection that is updated regularly with new spyware signatures. The special Anniversary Edition of Ad-Aware Free contains a more powerful spyware protection mechanism that not only detects and removes malware, it also cleans the computer’s file system by removing all traces of infection. This version is available for home and personal use only and this is the perfect package for those who want robust spyware protection that is not crippled in any way just because it is free.
Ad-Aware was compared to similar products for memory use, CPU utilization, and scan speeds. When idle, Ad-Aware was not the lightest application in terms of memory use but during active scanning, Ad-Aware consumed the least amount of precious memory. It also demanded the least from the CPU and is among the fastest anti-virus and spyware scanners in the market.
Leaner, meaner, faster. Ad-Aware Free Antivirus+ combines our legendary Anti-spyware with a super fast, free Antivirus. It now features download protection (blocks malicious files before being written to disk), sandboxing (keeps unknown apps running in a virtual environment) and advanced detection - it's our most powerful free antivirus yet.
