Can Pro be used without the AV ?

Recommended Posts

I want to use the most robust malware software possible. I already have bitdefender AV I am newly subscribed to. Can I download pro to get the malware protection I am looking for without having to install the AV also ?

I know it is a waste of money to be buying the PRO without using the AV. In the end, if I can be convinced Pro's AV is superior to bit defender, I will uninstall b d and install PRO. Anyway I go, I will be wasting money. But that is the price for subscribing what I hope will be (from what I read) an excellent malware protection.

Sorry for not doing my research (and I would be fine with following your directions to find where I can read up), but is there a brief way in describing the distinction between the software and the Anniversary issue ?

Ad-Aware Free version has malware protection without AV. If you later decide to buy Plus or Pro, you can activate the additional features with your license.

Here are Lavasoft's announcements. You can download pdf product manuals for both to compare features:

Thank you Visitor. You answered fully. Much appreciated. It sounds like with the license, one can bring on the components one wants.

I was aware of the free Ad-Aware, but C-NET described its malware protection as much lacking compared to the paid version. That is what prompted my question about paying for pro and using just the malware protection. Edited by deucy14
