Does Ad-Aware protect your computer from malware?

If you pay for Ad-Aware SE Plus it does have real-time protection (Ad-Watch).

From Lavasoft's website: "Ad-Aware SE Plus is an anti-spyware software designed to address this menace. Adding the background-running Ad-Watch real-time monitor to the free Personal edition, Ad-Aware SE Plus is now capable of not only scanning the system after the fact but also preventing infection before it happens. Ad-Watch accomplishes this by watching memory for undesirable processes, stopping modification attempts to Windows registry and system files, and preventing hostile content from taking over the browser."
