It's a superfast antivirus that complements Ad-Aware's legendary anti-spyware.
Ad-Aware Free Antivirus+ represents a strong antivirus solution, packing two anti-malware engines: an antivirus powered by BitDefender and the anti-spyware engine from Lavasoft.
This program will carefully guard your computer against all kinds of threats: worms, viruses, trojans, backdoors, rootkits, adware, spyware, keyloggers, etc.
The user interface is modern, clean and pretty intuitive and offers all kinds of settings and security shields for your total peace of mind.
You can scan your computer any time using the three predefined on-demand scanning methods: quick, full or custom scan.
As the internet plays a major role in every user’s computer usage, Ad-Aware offers Download protection and everything you get from the internet is scanned and blocked before reaching your computer, if it happens to be infected. Additionally, the Safe Browsing feature will compare every website you visit with a list of known bad websites serving malware or phishing and everything malicious will be blocked.
For those who play a lot of games, the silent mode available will make sure you are not interrupted during your game time.
A very interesting and useful feature is the Malware Sandbox Emulator, that can run any file in a secured, protected environment and your computer will stay safe and clean. You can run here anything you find suspicious and you don’t need to be afraid of malwares infecting your computer. Every changes made to your system while running something sandboxed will be undone.
One thing worth mentioning is that you should be very careful while installing this product, as it tries to install many third-party software, not required for its functionality.
