Is adaware still around--maybe it's been resurrected? I uploaded what was their final Defs.ref file for their SE personal (free) version to Driverguide 7 years ago.

I use Malwarebytes also. I no longer use AdAware.

The free version of Malwarebytes doesn't offer real-time protection, so keep that in mind.

riider makes a good point. If you are looking for real-time protection to help prevent you getting viruses (rather than something you run to search for them) there are free programs which do this.

However MalwareBytes often finds what real-time Antivirus programs miss. Right now no one program covers everything, there is need for both types. Even then some "nasties" can creep through.
