Free version includes malware protection?
« on: May 19, 2013, 12:55:24 PM »
Quick question. I have been using the free version of Ad-Aware for some time and it works great. Recently I installed a product called "system mechanic" and it says my system is at risk because I don't have malware protection. I thought Ad-Ware included malware protection. Is it worth it to run a separate anti-malware program?

Thanks

Ad aware is QUITE old when it comes to anti malware. I would suggest using Avast since it can keep up to date with the latest malware. Ad aware was good back in the early 2000s but not so much now.
I have Opera, WOT, K9 Web Protection, Avast Free web shield and Behavior blocker only, Comodo Internet Security 10, and common sense. ^_^
