Ad-Aware Free is one of the oldest software specifically geared towards detecting and removing adware and malware. It protects very effective protection against adware, malware, and spyware. All for Free.
I first found this software a few years back in an interesting way. One day I noticed that some really embarassing popups started coming on my computer. I had no idea what was causing those pop-ups. I tried multiple antivirus, but none of them was able to fix that problem. Then I found this free adware software. I installed it, ran the scan, and within a few minutes the problem was solved. Just like that.
Ad-Aware free continues to improve the adware and malware detection capabilities. Apart from that, the newer version runs a lot faster, takes a lot less system memory (almost un-noticeable), and has a much better interface.
Here are some of the cool features of this free malware:
Superfast Antivirus Engine: Ad-aware comes with a super-fast antivirus engine that combines two engines together to ensure full malware and spyware protection with no slowdowns.
Download Protection: Ad-aware automatically scans each program, document, or file that you download and quarantine malware-infected files in real-time to prevent them from damaging your computer.
Game Mode: This is a unique feature offered by Ad-aware. It enable users to stay protected without being interrupted by security alerts while watching movies or playing games.
Trusted Product: Ad-aware is quite popular with over 450 million downloads so far.
Low CPU Usage: Ad-aware takes up low system resources (less than 1% CPU utilization) and makes sure that your PC won’t slow down even during heavy usage.
Real-Time Protection: Ad-Aware free provides real-time monitoring, automatic updates, and threat alerts.
We love this free adware and malware. The paid version of it carries a lot more features, but the Free version of this adware itself packs in a big punch. Download it using the links at end.
