Leaner, meaner, faster. Ad-Aware Free Antivirus+ combines the legendary Anti-spyware with a super fast, free Antivirus. It now features download protection (blocks malicious files before being written to disk), sandboxing (keeps unknown apps running in a virtual environment) and advanced detection - it's the powerful free antivirus yet.
Ad-Aware 10 Free tracks your downloads, too, detecting and blocking malware before it can be launched. A new Ad-Aware Security Toolbar provides basic browsing protection (though only for IE or Firefox), scanning links and URLs in real-time to warn you of online dangers. And Ad-Aware 10 Free is also easier to use than ever, thanks to a redesigned and simplified interface, and a new (to the Free edition) Game Mode which takes care of security business automatically while you're doing other things.
Other features includes a malware sandbox emulator that rapidly analyze malware in a virtual environment so that malware is never actually executed on a user's machine, improvements in the program's performance, behavioural monitoring, game (silent) mode, improved heuristics detection and more.
What's new in this version:
- Faster and simplified installation process
- Enhanced Second-Line of Defense Mode
- Improved Web-Browsing Protection engine
- Increased scan speeds and performance
