Maybe it is really not a good security software because I found so many negative comments towards it.
I never used it, I'll never ditch CIS just to try something else.
But if AdAware PRO has alot of negative comments, then all I have to say is "The people have spoken"
Ad Aware Pro doesn't detect or block the eicar test file in zip format when we test it using firefox browser or google chrome browser. I have to use Ad Aware to scan my computer in order to detect it.
However, It able to detect and block all eicar test files when I was using IE to test. It is quite silly and we can see the big difference between their protection towards IE browser and other browsers.
The first thing that popped up in my heads was The quality of protection based on what browser you used!! That gave me a good chuckle THANKS!!
The way I see it is this, Just because some Software Vendor offers a paid product for free for a year to lure you in, that doesn't mean you should lower your protection for the year, just because it'll be free for the year
