Ad-Aware 10 Early Preview

by Jerome on February 20th, 2012 in News about Lavasoft.

Everyone at Lavasoft has been very hard at work to build the next-generation security and privacy software solution. Today, we are very excited to announce that we will be releasing very soon what we believe will become the new market standard in free security and privacy software. We call it Ad-Aware 10.

Our best software update yet brings all the privacy and security features you know and trust to a whole new level: it’s faster and slimmer, packs better protection, offers powerful new features and is wrapped in a brand new interface.


Faster and Slimmer

Ad-Aware 10 is faster and slimmer than it has ever been, making it one of the lightest security software on the market today. Performance improvements are so radical that Ad-Aware 10’s scan times are up to 4 times faster than the previous versions.

Ad-Aware 10 is not just fast, it’s also very light. CPU usage has been drastically slimmed down to a fraction and Ad-Aware 10’s Active Real-Time Protection consumes even less memory than a small text editor. With Ad-Aware 10, speed and performance are defining factors which we believe will firmly set a new standard in free security and privacy software.


Better Protection

As the original anti-malware company, Lavasoft has been creating award-winning, free security and privacy software since 1999. Born of the belief that online security should be available to everyone, we offer millions of users the maximum protection for their online identities and computers.

Ad-Aware 10’s improved Genocode Detection, rootkit protection and real-time detection will continue to provide a legendary anti-spyware protection against any intrusion or attack trying to steal your information.

Combined with a superfast antivirus engine that works brilliantly alongside it, Ad-Aware 10’s protection is absolutely second-to-none. The two engines work perfectly together to block malware from traditional viruses to the more common spyware attacks.

Because both engines are made to work seamlessly 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.  


Powerful New Features in Ad-Aware FREE

With Ad-Aware 10, our commitment to offer more FREE security features than everyone else is boldly restated. We’re porting to Ad-Aware FREE more security features than it has ever had in its 12 years of history, thereby making it a direct free competitor to many of the top paid security software available on the market today.

Features such as Advanced Active Protection (up to now only included in our Pro version), Download Protection (blocks malware before it hits the disk) and Game Mode (silent mode) will now be available to all freeware users – at no additional cost at all.


Advanced New Features in Ad-Aware PRO

Our most popular software upgrade now comes with more advanced features than ever before to offer you a complete protection against the most dangerous forms of attacks and malware.

Ad-Aware PRO 10 will now come with features found in the most advanced security solutions for home and business use, including a top of the line two-way firewall, intrusion protection and an external storage scan.


New Interface

Ad-Aware 10’s brand new interface has been radically redesigned from the ground-up with usability as core principle. Its new look feels intuitive and organizes Ad-Aware’s most popular functions directly on the start-up window and advanced options are just one or two clicks away.
