Adaware is another unpopular security suite and you may not have even heard of it. At the start of their journey in 1999 they developed a program to highlight web beacons inside of internet explorer. By 2008 they had developed a new package which included an antivirus scanner based on the Avira Engine. Their latest release has been completely re-vamped to the point it has nothing in common with the predecessors apart from the core functionalities.
There isn’t a great deal of information on Adaware that you’ll find on the web but PC Mag has reviewed it and have given them a 3.5/5, not the best by a long stretch of the imagination, but also not the worst. The interface is attractive, it seems to block a whole host of relatively new bad URLs and the feature list for both paid packages is pretty generous. However, their previous version of the software scored better in malware-blocking tests, so maybe they’ve concentrated too much on making it look good and forgotten about the most important aspect, security.
Both paid packages come with a whole host of features from real-time protection and web protection to shopping/banking protection and email protection, if you’re lucky enough to get their total security you’ll also get a file shredder, parental controls and even a digital locking system which allows you to encrypt important files.
Support looks very basic, no obvious signs of live chat or telephone support. However, you do get the usual FAQs/Forum support. This can be enough for some people who are computer witty but you can’t compare this to picking up the phone or connecting to a real person on live chat. Adaware, you need to up your support game!
