Currently trying Adware Free Internet Security. Here its light on resources. Checked few tests on Youtube & read some reviews & find it good, so giving it a try.
What do you guyz have to say about Adware Free Internet Security?? Of all the free AV’s out there I have found Avast & Adware good. Every other has little probs like update prob, heavy on resources, weak detection, etc. Dont know about Adware’s detection but tests & reviews are good. Which one you guyz suggests, Adware or Avast??
I have seen mixed reviews on Adware Security Suite, some show it’s okay, some show it bad and good… Bad as in real time protection is poor, but good on sig based detection. Avast is a good AV, same as ESET, but I don’t think their suite is out special.
I find its Realtime Protection good in most tests. Every AV misses threats & so does Adware. I find it comparable to Avast if not better.
I guess for Spyware protection Adware has its own engine. For Antivirus they have Vipre or G-Data’s?? Coz in a forum a user has mentioned it uses Vipre & in another a user has mentioned it uses G-Data.
Does Adware Free has Rootkit Protection?? Its not clear in their website.
In its Ad-watch Live Protection in the Free Version it has Processes Protection On & Files, Registry Off. Does Avast has all these protection??
I too wanted to just use comodo firewall with cloud scanner enabled but the prob is when cloud scan detects anything & the cloud av alert is there, there is no way to quarantine the threats for later inspection.
On commercial-use PCs, as at close of business 02/03/11:
9 x MSE v.2
4 x PC Tools AV Free v.184.108.40.2064
1 x Avast 6.0.1000 30-day trial (was CIS 5.3 but it’s had unresolved apparent ‘issues’ withTeamviewer)
Before unistalling I exported configuration and am going to try CIS 5.3 on another Teamviewer-free PC.
