Test Results

Scanning performance

Once installed, we have performed a full system scan. The first impression was great, as the software did not impact system performances. However, we weren’t able to specify scanning patterns to only scan a particular section of the computer. The tool scans the computer each time when it is used, but it is worth to mention that the scans are quick. The full scan took about three minutes.

Repairs

As you are probably aware, the device can get real slow due to bloatware and junk files that include trial versions of the applications, unwanted toolbars, preinstalled software and other files that take up space and can cause performance issues.

Avast free trial does not include repair feature, so users can delete the issues manually.

Once upgraded, Avast repairs the issues for you by removing bloatware with a cloud-based reputation system. The tool also includes a 1-click maintenance feature that removes junk files in several key areas, such as the browser and disk, desktop’s wallpaper and registry.

Users can choose what files to delete, and what files are useful for them, even if they may seem harmful for your PC.

In addition, Avast offers quarantine function for those, who are afraid to uninstall some programs. If you feel that you might have deleted too much, Avast offers Undo option and allows the amending of certain actions made within the program.

Avast CleanUp Premium also cleans trances and temporary data from over 25 browsers, detects and remover unwanted browser extensions, plugins, and toolbars; cleans the disk from installer files, cache, temporary system files, and old backups.
