It worked fast to get our computer in tip-top shape.".  It continues to report that, "The interface is simple, but very professional. There appears to be a help tab on the right side of the window, but its not activated. Thankfully it's not necessary because the program is very intuitive, and it walks you through each process. The list of buttons on the left side of the screen lets you pick the files and folders that you want to shred. When we chose to shred our temporary Internet files, a list of the available files popped up and we had the choice of three shredding algorithms--HMG Infosec, DOD (Department of Defense), or the US Army. Considering how many temporary Internet files we had (were talking more than 4,000), the program was quick to clear our computer. We were able to view the log of shredded items via the settings menu.".  In addition, has given LavaSoft a 5-star rating.  Top Ten Reviews has given LavaSoft Ad-Aware Total Security 10 a 7.33 out of 10 point rating verdict.  Their review of the product states that product pros include, "a complete security suite with tools for backing up data and recovering accidentally deleted files.".  The review's cons state that, "In autumn 2012 tests conducted by AV-Test, LavaSoft produced good although not excellent results.".
