Lavasoft recently launched a new version of the Registry Tuner. All Registry Tuner users with an active license will be able to upgrade to the new version, free of charge. 


We are proud to announce that the folks at TopTenReviews have awarded Ad-Aware Pro and Ad-Aware Total Security their Excellence Award. Thanks TopTenReviews!





We are very happy to announce that both Ad-Aware Pro and Ad-Aware Free have received the prestigious Editors’ Choice from PC Magazine for superior performance in both malware blocking and malware removal. The Editors' Choice is awarded to products and services that stand out from and above similar products in their categories, according to PCMag.


We are proud to announce that a major update to Ad-Aware was just released. Other companies may hold their new technologies for the next year’s major launch, but not Lavasoft – we’re going to give them to you as we develop them, so you can benefit with a boost to your online protection now! 


We are very proud to announce that Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware Pro has been awarded the prestigious VB100 award.


In a comparative test published in Virus Bulletin’s August issue, Ad-Aware achieved one of the top results for malware detection. Virus Bulletin independently tests anti-virus products and those products which pass the tests are awarded the VB100. The test review covers a range of criteria, including detection rates, design and usability, and performance.



We are very proud to announce the release of the new Ad-Aware line-up!





And this time, we give you two very important and exciting changes!


A columnist at the News and Observer recently wrote an article called “How To Safely Clear Your Computer of Spyware” and referred readers to Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware software. However, some users ran into trouble when they tried to download Ad-Aware Free. We’d like to pass on that news so you can see why it’s so important to be careful what you click.


Attention Ad-Aware users: we have news for you! We’re going to be rolling out two exciting new changes in the upcoming July Ad-Aware release –

1. Anti-virus is soon to be included in Ad-Aware Free

2. An all-new Ad-Aware product is on the way


We’re pleased to announce that a new version of Ad-Aware Business Edition is now available – providing powerful, centrally managed endpoint malware protection to businesses of all shapes and sizes (from small companies with 25 workstations up to large enterprises with over 100,000 client machines.)

What will you find in the new version? Ad-Aware Business Edition includes: advanced, real-time online protection against viruses, spyware, rootkits, and blended malware, the layered protection of Genotype detection technology and behavior-based heuristical detection to find and block unknown and emerging attacks, centralized, flexible client management allowing the IT admin to manage policies and tasks, and easy installation and deployment of new clients – including the option to use standard Windows Active Directory.

To learn more, read the official news release or visit the Ad-Aware Business Edition product page on the Lavasoft website.


Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware software was recently reviewed in Virus Bulletin’s April comparative test.


PC World recently published its list of the greatest free downloads and services, and named Lavasoft’s own Ad-Aware as one of its top 10 classic products of all-time, alongside the likes of OpenOffice, Evite, and other user favorites.

Thanks to PC World for spotlighting Lavasoft’s long experience in online security (after all, we are the original anti-spyware company) – and our commitment to providing Ad-Aware Free completely free of charge for computer users around the world, no strings attached!

Following this week’s release of version 8.2 of Ad-Aware, Lavasoft became aware of an issue with scanning that affected a limited number of our Ad-Aware users. This has only affected users of Windows XP (Home and Professional).

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience or concern this may have caused.  Lavasoft’s developers prioritized this issue in order to promptly resolve it, and a software update to fix the issue has now been released. In order to resolve the issue, please update Ad-Aware by clicking “Web Update.”
