Features

New, fluid User-Interface.

Designed for ease and usability. Easy to download, install and use, Ad-Aware 11 now sports a light, fluid UI that is a step-up from our previous version with a light, contemporary and modern design.


Powerful two-way firewall
Keep the bad guys out and your personal data in. Many legitimate applications on your computer connect to the Internet in the background. For example, Ad-Aware checks regularly for new virus definition files and software updates. Ad-Aware Pro’s two-way firewall complements and enhances the protection offered by a router, providing more robust security than Microsoft’s built-in Windows Firewall (which only checks incoming traffic) by monitoring which applications are attempting to send data out (outgoing traffic).

Advanced Protection
Protection against the most hardened malware. Ad-Aware’s safe networking feature continuously monitors network and/or system activities and blocks malicious intrusions. Ad-Aware Pro’s intrusion prevention technology (HIPS) identifies malicious activities, logs information and attempts to stop unusual behaviors that are identified as harmful.

Real-time email protection
Protect yourself and your friends when sending emails.
Ad-Aware delivers a powerful behind-the-scenes tool that protects your computer from potentially harmful inbound and outbound email messages. With email protection enabled, your computer is protected. All attachments are automatically scanned for malware and viruses without any need for human interaction.

Fast Antivirus
It’s a superfast antivirus that complements our legendary anti-spyware.
Ad-Aware offers a superfast antivirus engine that works alongside our legendary anti-spyware technology. Two engines work together to block malware from traditional viruses to the more common spyware attacks. Because both engines are made to work together, there are no conflicts or slow-downs typically associated with running two separate security programs – there’s just one easy and superfast security solution. With automatic updates available several times a day, you can rest assured that your computer and files are protected from the ever-evolving threats of the web.

Legendary Antispyware
The world’s most trusted. 450 million downloads and counting. With over 1 billion attacks stopped, there is no doubt Lavasoft knows a thing or two about how to stop cybercriminals. Ad-Aware’s rootkit protection and Real-Time Detection continue to provide a legendary defense against Trojans, password stealers, key-loggers, spyware, adware, fraudsters and identity thieves.

Shop & bank online safely
Get complete peace of mind when shopping or banking. Phishing scams and their level of sophistication are at an unprecedented high. While it is generally safe to shop and bank online, as a general rule it is better to be very cautious about giving out your personal information online. Our Real-Time Web Filter protects you against phishing attacks by constantly analyzing in real-time links that are often found on the Internet, in emails and in messages.

Avoid online scams
Real-time protection for you and your friends. Ad-Aware keeps your passwords and personal information safe on social networks. Combined with our Real-Time Web Filter and powerful anti-phishing technology, it also means that bad links that are sent out via messaging, chats, emails and all other types of communications on social networking sites (such as Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus) are checked in real-time to give you and your friends a much safer way to communicate.

External storage scan
Scan USB drives or memory keys against malware. Ad-Aware scans external storage to ensure that your computer stays malware-free.

Real-time protection
Play your games and watch your movies without being disturbed.
Ad-Aware’s Real-Time Protection immediately detects and blocks malware. Powered by behavior-based heuristic scanning, which blocks or suspends malicious processes and infected files that try to start or connect to your system. Ad-Aware’s Enhanced Real-Time Protection effectively prevents malware from damaging your PC or accessing your personal files.

Real-time process protection
Blocks or suspends malicious processes and infected files that try to start or connect to your system preventing them from further infecting your system.

Real-time registry protection
Advanced detection of attempted registry changes, a favorite target for many malware distributors. Ad-Aware 11 alerts you when a program tries to make changes to your registry, giving you the power to block the threat or to allow access.

Real-time network protection
Monitors outgoing network traffic and blocks connections to blacklisted IP addresses and known malicious websites, identifying and stopping active threats.

Download Protection
Download photos, music and movies with confidence. Ad-Aware automatically scans files before they are downloaded on your hard-drive and detects malware before it can ever be launched. Its real-time protection quarantines infected files preventing them from damaging your system.

Safe browsing
Ad-Aware’s Safe Browsing feature scans for known bad URLs and websites. It’s a great way to protect yourself from the newest malware being distributed.
The Safe Browsing engine constantly checks sites against a constantly updated list of reported malware infected sites. The list is updated every 5-20 minutes and provides real-time browsing protection against the latest web-based exploits, from back door Trojans to exploits and phishing sites.
Ad-Aware Safe Browsing protects you while you browse the web.

Gaming mode
Play games and watch movies without being disturbed. In Game Mode, your computer remains protected while you play your games or watch a movie without the interruptions or strain on system resources that other security software programs often cause. Game Mode suspends alerts, system scans and auto-updates while you work or play without compromising your security.
