Speed up with Sleep Mode
Our cleanup process detects performance drains and stops them for you, without making you uninstall programs or interfering with your PC.
The more programs you put to sleep, the fewer you’ll have running in the background, and the faster your computer will be.
Identifies bloatware and long-forgotten programs
Your PC could be slowed down by programs you haven’t used in ages — trial versions, unwanted toolbars, or preinstalled software. These are a waste of space and speed, and may even be a security risk. Our new Software Cleanup feature gets rid of them once and for all.
Clean it all up
Take the guesswork out of figuring out which programs you no longer need with our cloud-based reputation and unneeded-program detection systems. If you’re afraid to uninstall, we can temporarily put files in quarantine until you decide.
Clean up online traces and temporary data from over 25 browsers, including Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox. Get rid of leftover data that browsers can’t delete by themselves, such as Adobe Flash cookies, and optimize the browser database to troubleshoot and speed up your browser.
Search, plugin, and toolbar cleanup
Is your default search engine constantly changing to one you didn’t pick? Had enough of toolbars crashing on your browser like a bad houseguest? Let our cloud-based reputation system, with ratings from millions of users, help you decide which search extensions, plugins, and toolbars you really need.
Run a deep scan for application leftovers that take up valuable storage space such as, installer files, cache, temporary system files and old backups.
Our Automatic Maintenance regularly removes junk files such as:
- Leftover cache files and traces from your browser, programs, and Windows.
- Removes broken shortcuts by deleting all those “dead” shortcuts you never use.
- Clean up your Windows registry as part of Avast Cleanup’s regular maintenance.
Update your programs automatically
Outdated programs can leave your PC vulnerable to bugs, crashes, and security risks. Our new Automatic Software Updater regularly updates your most critical programs for you to avoid security risks, fix bugs and get the latest features.
