  1. Hi! I have recently downloaded adaware antivirus free version on my Laptop. I have Windows 10 installed but since then my PC fan are running way fast then it used to be. I also used couple of temperature monitor tool i.e. Core temp, HWMonitor, and Speedfan to check my CPU temp and fan speed. I noticed that my temps are way to high for a laptop. It's not just this tool along whenever i install third-party antivirus software this happens. I don't know what is wrong with my laptop or there's something wrong with antivirus tool. Especially when these tool download definition my laptop runs like a snail.
  2. How can I scan a second hard disk with Adaware Free Antivirus? I installed the new 12.6 July 2019 and am running Windows 10. When I click on the "Scan" button it scans only the C drive. When I "Select Options" and choose "Full" it scans only the C drive. When I choose "Custom" and check the second hard disk it still scans only the C drive.

    Scanning Speed

    I read some reviews about your Security Products, I want to use Ad-Aware it offers Bitdefender for free! but some reviews says "Scan speed is reaaly slow" what do you say about it thanks ? review :
  4. Ad-Aware Antivirus is stopping me from accessing websites including Google, Twitter, Facebook and more. It says The Security Certificate Is Revoked (as shown in attachment) It is not doing this for all websites but ones which I go on on a day to day basis. Help will be very much appreciated.
  5. I've installed AdAware and am running v10.2.21.3698 on a Windows 7 PC home client. Two issues that I'd appreciate some help with: 1) The auto-update doesn't work. I can update my anti-virus definitions manually but every time I "enable" auto updates, it doesn't 2) The software doesn't appear to "see" across the other accounts on the computer. When my kids log in and load their desktop, AdAware doesn't recognize the program as "registered" and doesn't recognize that the definition files are up to date. Thanks! Just Al -
  6. Hi. I know how to disable real-time antivirus protection on Adaware Pro, but I want it to keep scanning data for adware protection real-time; I see that there is a button for disabling antivirus real-time protection, but if I click on that button, does clicking on the button disable real-time adware protection, too? If it does, do I have a way of keeping the adware and other objects from getting on my computer? I am guessing that if I have to, I can change the text in one of Adware's files. I have AVG Antivirus and I want to keep being protected real-time for antivirus by them. Thank you for reading. Appreciate responses.
  7. Will Microsoft Essentials Antivirus conflict with Ad-Aware? I purchased a Toshiba Qosmio Windows 7 a month ago and it came with Norton. I totally removed Norton with Add/Remove Programs and then with their special remove tool, and I installed Microsoft Essentials free antivirus which is supposedly integrated with the Windows 7 one-way firewall. They claim that a two-way firewall is useless since if it catches some outgoing communication that means the machine is already infected. I installed the free Lavasoft Ad-Aware because I am troubled by tracking cookies. I have NOSCRIPT installed in my Firefox browser and it is from Firefox that I use Facebook. When I want privacy from Facebook, I log out of Facebook and use NOSCRIPT to forbid Facebook. I use Chrome browser for things like Gmail and Google Plus. I upgraded to the paid version of Ad-Aware in the hopes that it will offer real-time protection against tracking cookies. I also periodically run a full scan with the free version of malwarebytes. I also have an old Dell XP which is protected by Avira Antivir paid version with integrated firewall. I read that Ad-Aware also teams up with the Avira engine. Anyway, I will appreciate any advice about possible CONFLICTS using both Ad-Aware and Microsoft Essentials. I assume that an occasional scan by malwarebytes cannot hurt since it is not real-time. I used to use free Ad-Aware in the mid 1990s and was impressed with its performance. For many years I used free AVG by Grisoft and it seemed to do a good job but I came to believe that it had a certain number of false positives. I switched to paid Avira because it had an integrated firewall. At certain times on certain Windows XP machines I have used free Spybot-S&D together with "teatimer". I have also used a free firewall, Online Armor, by tallemu. My experience with such products is that someone knowledgeable must frequently answer permission questions so I did not use such products on machines where non-technical users might become confused. Back around 1998 when I started using AOL dial-up my machine was taken over by a netbus trojan and I purchased Lockdown and became a beta test site. The technician spent an hour on the phone with me telling me how to clean my system of the trojan and email it to him. He had a disassembler which showed the source code of the trojan as a mixture of Visual Basic and Delphi. The trojan imitated AOL complete with false chat rooms and had a menu of destructive actions to erase the hard drive, damage the registry, plus annoying actions like opening and closing CD drives. One job in the 1990s did subscribe to Pestpatrol. At that same job there was one vicious trojan on one machine infected because a company officer liked to surf questionable sites. I stayed until midnight and was only able to remove it with a 30 day trial version of Kaspersky. The company did not have a big budget for software.
