Does adaware slow down the computer?

Question

Hello everyone,

Currently cybersecurity is a very sensitive issue. For people like me, going online is inevitable, so the risk of information disclosure and data theft is also very great. So I'm using Adaware software to somewhat limit that possibility. But I don't know if that software is making my computer slow? So I hope everyone can show me.

Thanks everyone.

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.

The first warning of malicious Adware is the deterioration in your Computer's performance. Adware has a reputation of engaging resources and in turn, hurting performance and speed.

Hi Eizadora,

Please note that the question is about adaware antivirus and not adware.

Thanks for your opinion, is there any solution to fix that situation?

Don't install adware or other types of malicious programs.
