I have Adaware on my pc, but when I check my safety on aol it tells me I don't have any anti virus software. Is Adaware an anti virus software and if not what should I download. Thanks,Ann

Adaware is not an anti virus program, A free anti virus program can be downloaded here. click here

There are other free anti virus programs but i suggest you download and install this then search for another if your not happy with it.

Ad-aware ozzieann, is a spyware remover, you need an anti virus such as Avast or avg, both are free downloads and are very good

I used to use ad-aware. I find Spybot search & destroy is a far better programme.
I used McAfee Internet Security as my firewall & antivirus.
