Is AdAware remover really that efficient in deleting viruses?

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hello to everyone!

I am an internet savvy. Mostly, I get cyber threats and my anti-virus McAfee has always solved this problem. But suddenly, I got a cyber threat which cannot be deleted by my anti-virus.
A friend told me to use AdAware remover. It’s the first time I’ve known of the word. Is it really that efficient? Please give me more details.
Thank you so much!

Ad-Aware is quite an effective anti-spyware by LavaSoft. In fact, as seen on, this software is ranked #3 on the most popular anti-spyware. It has three versions: Free, Personal and Pro. This software is quite reliable as I have used it. But self-precaution is needed most.

As an internet savvy user, you must have the idea about the type of websites which can offer malicious content and thus avoid them. This can actually help your computer stay safe without any extra software.

Ad-Aware or now known simply as Adaware, is an antivirus and antispyware software developed by Lavasoft designed to detect and remove malware, spyware, and adware. According to Lavasoft, Adaware is capable of detecting spyware, viruses, dialers, Trojan horses, bots, rootkits, data miners, parasites, browser hijackers, and tracking components. The software was originally developed in 1999 to emphasize web beacons within Microsoft Internet Explorer.

On many websites, users would see a very small pixilated square next to every web beacon which warns the user that his or her IP address and other less-important information was being tracked by the website. Web beacon or web bug, by the way, is one of the many methods used in web pages and email to invisibly allow checking that a user has accessed some content.

If you want to try Adaware, you can download the latest Adaware Antivirus 12. It supports Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. It requires 1.6 MHz or faster processor, 1 GB RAM, 1.8 GB free space, and Windows Installer 4.5 or higher.
