Adware is a kind of malware that can be downloaded onto your computer in a way that you are unaware of. It can then spy on your computer to discover what you are searching for and display relevant advertisements. This can result in numerous unwelcome ads that could be extremely distracting and slow down your computer. It also poses serious health, privacy and security risks. Adware can be used to collect data from you and sell it to marketers.
The company behind adaware is Lavasoft that has been around for a long time and has developed legitimate antivirus software solutions. It is easy to install and doesn’t require you to remove your existing antivirus. After it’s installed it can run a rapid, full or custom scan from the main dashboard, and then run product updates.
Adaware offers three plans: free, Pro, and Total. The free version includes real-time protection, download security but does not include an the ad blocker. The Pro version comes with unlimited tech assistance, web and email security and a robust fire wall. It also comes with a digital lock, a parental control and file shredder.
