In 2007 Adaware redesigned the software engine of the Adaware program. This redesign has increased the ability of Adaware to protect your privacy and safeguard your private files. Adaware has improved tremendously and is closing the gap toward being the number one spyware removal software. Some features helping Adaware improve are:

  • Track Sweep: This module in the software will clear away all traces left behind by your web browser. This leaves no history for adware and spyware to utilize.
  • RegShield: This module will protect your system registry. It will stop registry changes and warn you of the offending software.
  • Incremental Updates: Adaware updates itself incrementally. Using small chunks to update means the software is updated very quickly.
  • Multiple browser support. It works with all browsers available today. It works well to prevent unwanted advertising in the form of pop-up advertising.

The new Adaware gives total control to the user. We have to say that Adaware is constantly improving. We would still like to see the more advanced features made available in an easy manner.

Overall, Adaware is a great spyware removal program. Adaware does offer a free version of the software. The free version does not have real time protection. If you want real time protection you have to buy the product. All the other features are included in the free version.
