Ad-Aware - Real-time Protection Against Malware
Review by on
In today's computer world, one of the biggest threats to privacy and personal data is related to spyware and malware. That's because these malicious objects are getting more and more difficult to remove, even by advanced antivirus applications. This is why it would be a better idea to install a specialized application for removing spyware. These types of programs usually work better than antivirus applications. A very good example in this case is the Ad-Aware application. This popular program has improved a lot in the past years and now it can be considered the most popular anti-malware application on the market.

This is due to its large number of features and its simple interface. Speaking about this, after installing and running the program, the user will notice a graphical and intuitive interface, which clearly displays the protection status of the program. Using a couple of switches, the user can toggle the program's options on and off. Ad-Aware offers real time protection for files and folders and can intercept any file operations, being able to scan any file while being copied or moved.

Besides that, the program can monitor the web browser in real time and can intercept and stop malware before it can do any harm. For being able to detect and remove the latest spyware and malware, the program's database is regularly updated. This can be done automatically or manually, using a single mouse click. When an infected file is found, the user can choose either to remove it or send it to a quarantine, where it cannot do any harm.

Besides protecting the system from malware and spyware, Ad-Aware can also protect the user's data from hackers or illegal connection attempts, by including an advanced firewall. By default, the firewall is turned off, but the user can switch it on, using a single mouse click.

Scanning tasks can be scheduled to perform at certain hours or week days, ensuring that the user's system will always be protected and free of malware.

Pros:
It allows protecting the system from any type of spyware and malware. Besides that, its database is periodically updated. Furthermore, it includes an advanced firewall and real time file protections. What's more, it can intercept malware downloaded from the Internet, stopping it before it can do any harm. Moreover, scanning tasks can be scheduled to perform at certain hours or week days.

Cons:
None that I could think of.

Ad-Aware is an advanced anti-malware solution that can efficiently remove any type of malware or spyware, keeping your system protected.
