  1. Hi Mike, Due to the web address I think you've allowed notifications from that web site in the browser. See here to remove it from the browser: Chrome, Firefox and old Edge: https://lifehacker.com/disable-those-annoying-browser-notifications-once-and-1822154599 New Edge: https://www.windowsq.com/t/how-to-allow-or-block-web-push-notifications-for-sites-in-microsoft-edge.724/ Not a virus and not something antivirus programs care of since it isn't dangerous or harmful for the computer.
  2. Hi again Randy, The antivirus program and the ad-blocking software are separate products. Both are available as free products. The antivirus program is also available as a paid premium program and the prizes are presented on its web site. Sometimes there are discounts but none here knows when that happens.
  3. Hi Dennis, Probably a developer that has made a mistake. If you don't like it, check if the same thing happens when you download the program from https://www.adaware.com/.
  4. Hi again, Adaware antivirus is as safe as other antivirus programs. No antivirus program can protect you from everything, you need to be careful too and have backups and be able to reinstall Windows.
  5. Hi RandyPhillips, For Firefox: https://www.adaware.com/ad-blocker For Chrome and other compatible browsers using Chrome Web Store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adaware-ad-block/cmllgdnjnkbapbchnebiedipojhmnjej
  6. Don't install adware or other types of malicious programs.
  7. Hi again Eizadora, Please, explain what you mean. This topic is about Adaware antivirus version 11 and that is a very old version.
  8. Hi Eizadora, Please note that the question is about adaware antivirus and not adware.
  9. Hi Eizadora, I guess that you can notice any differences yourself. But as I wrote back in 2018, users have different opinions and maybe more dislike an automatic update at Windows startup since it makes the startup slower.
  10. Hi RandyPhillips, Generally not, but maybe in your computer due to some rare condition. The only way to know is to compare with and without Adaware antivirus in your computer. E.g. using a VPN, that you maybe do, can slow down the internet connection speed.
  11. I have Adware Total. Adware pc cleaner got deleted.  How do I download a new copy.

      Hi jyusko,

      I ain't familiar with PC Cleaner but it seems to be a part of Adaware Protect beta version and that program can be downloaded here: https://www.adaware.com/free-adaware-protect-download

      Since you've paid for Adaware Antivirus Total, you can reach the support team through the menus in Adaware antivirus.

  12. Hi LEL, How did you uninstall Web Companion?
  13. Hi RandyPhillips, Yes, Adaware antivirus free version is free for everyone to use, if downloaded from https://www.adaware.com/free-antivirus-download
  14. They should reply within 48 hours (not weekends). Have you logged into your webmail and checked the spam folder? If it hasn't been sorted as spam, please send me a PM with your email address and license key (don't post it in the forum). I'll then inform my contact person at Adaware software (but not in the support team), who will contact the support team and ask why no reply has been sent to you.
  15. Hi Firelord, USB connections are often slow so it takes long time to read everything on an USB connected storage unit.
