What’s slowing down my device?
The more programs you install and use, the slower your PC becomes for three main reasons.
Startup items
Many programs may run automatically when you turn your PC on, significantly slowing its startup time.
Background processes
Programs could be running in the background even when you’re not using them, hogging your PC’s memory and CPU.
Scheduled tasks
Some software may set its own schedule and can suddenly come alive, using up resources and slowing down your PC.
Help improve your PC’s performance with Sleep Mode
Our PC tune-up process detects performance drains and allows you to stop them, without making you uninstall programs or disrupting your PC’s performance.
Time to sleep
Switch on Sleep Mode to freeze any program that may be slowing you down. While asleep, it won’t use up resources.
Wake up
Launch the program you put to sleep, and let our smart algorithm automatically enable its background activity.
...and back to bed
Once you’re done using the program, we automatically put it back to sleep to help stop it from slowing you down.
The more programs you put to sleep, the fewer you’ll have running in the background, which can help optimize your PC’s performance.
Remove junk programs and bloatware
Identify bloatware and long-forgotten programs
Your PC could be slowed down by programs you haven’t used in ages or never wanted in the first place — trial versions, unwanted toolbars, or preinstalled software. These are a waste of space and speed, and may even be a security risk. Our App Manager feature scans your PC for old apps and programs taking up significant space and lets you delete them more safely and without leftovers.
Clean up apps
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 them, you can temporarily move apps to trash until you decide.
Defrag and care for your hard disk
Performance boost for your HDD
Defragmenting is a key factor in PC performance: It’s the process of re-arranging files on a hard disk for faster access. You’ll enjoy faster startup times, less loading, and snappier performance overall.
Care for your SSD
Our Disk Doctor scans your system disk for potential errors, including file system errors, data integrity issues, and access rights. If any issues are detected, it offers automatic fixes. It also detects SSDs (Solid-State Drives) that don't need to be defragged.

Browsers can store records of your activity and personal information like cookies, browsing history, login credentials, or caches. Reclaim space and enhance your privacy as well as browsing speed with automatic cleaning of your browsing history in today’s most popular browsers.
Effectively remove bloatware
Bloatware refers to all the preinstalled software you don’t actually need and probably don’t want: apps you don’t use, distracting toolbars, expired software trials, and adware that plagues you with popups or may even spy on you. Avast Cleanup will deep-scan your machine to help root out PC bloatware.

What’s automatic maintenance?
Your PC accumulates a ton of wasteful data every day but we’ve got your back. Our automatic maintenance helps you regularly and automatically remove these junk files.
Clean up your browser and disk
Remove leftover cache files and traces from your browser, programs, and Windows.

Disk Doctor
Over time, your hard disk file and folder structure could become damaged, leading to data loss and crashes. Our Disk Doctor helps prevent errors and cure your disk. Here’s what we check:
File system errors
Your hard disk is structured like a book: An index pointing to chapters and pages. If this index is broken, your PC suddenly can’t find files or folders anymore. This can lead to missing files, applications no longer working or even Windows crashing. Our Disk Doctor checks for such structural errors and helps you fix them in no time.
Data integrity
Files on your disk can become corrupt for various reasons, such as sudden power losses. Our Disk Doctor detects such errors and helps to fix them.
Access rights
If you’re getting “You don’t have the privileges to access this file” (or similar) messages, then the access rights of files and folders got messed up. This can happen after an update, the installation of an application or even after a virus attack. Disk Doctor checks for such errors and tries to cure them.
Update your programs automatically
Outdated programs can leave your PC vulnerable to bugs, crashes, and security risks. Our Software Updater regularly checks for updates to your programs and allows you to automatically install newer versions if you wish.
Helps prevent security risks

Why do I need software updates?
Software updates can be critical to keeping your PC running smoothly and safely. Here’s why you shouldn’t ignore them.
To avoid security risks
Outdated programs can leave your PC vulnerable to security risks. Our Software Updater helps patch security holes for you, saving you the hassle of finding, downloading, and installing the updates yourself.
To fix bugs
Bug fixes are part of many updates, so Software Updater helps you enjoy your software with fewer annoying crashes and error messages. We support the most popular applications, such as Adobe Reader, Skype, VLC Player, and WinRAR.
To get the latest features
New updates often bring new features. For example, VLC Player 3 added support for up to 8K and HDR video — something you’d miss if you never updated. Our Software Updater can automatically install the updates for you, so the next time you open your favorite app, any new features will be ready to go.
