In case you are looking for something more than the free edition, look out for a special offer on Ad-aware PLUS (anniversary edition). For a limited time, Lavasoft is offering Ad-aware PLUS worth $26.5 (for 1 year license) absolutely FREE!!! And the catch is

I personally prefer the Free edition which I feel is more than enough for home use. Your choice anyway!
