Speed up, tune up, and revive your PC
Puts apps to sleep
Removes bloatware and forgotten programs
Defrags and optimizes your hard disk
What’s slowing me down?
The more programs you install and use, the slower your PC becomes for three main reasons.
Many programs run automatically when you turn your PC on, significantly slowing its startup time.
Your programs could be running in the background even when you’re not using them, hogging your PC’s memory and CPU.
Your software often sets its own schedule and can suddenly come alive and slow down your PC.
Speed up with Sleep Mode
Our tuneup process detects performance drains and stops them for you, without making you uninstall programs or interfering with your PC
Time to sleep
...and back to bed
The more programs you put to sleep, the fewer you’ll have running in the background, and the faster your computer will be.
Junk programs and bloatware removal
Identifies 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 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.
Defrag & care for your hard disk
The ultimate 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.
Cares for your SSD
Newer PCs come with ultrafast flash-based storage (Solid State Drives, SSDs) that don’t need to be defragged. Our Defrag detects SSDs and prolongs their health.
Give your PC a proper cleanup
Cleans up your browser
Nukes unwanted plugins and toolbars
Frees up space
Get rid of the daily clutter
Every day you use your PC, it becomes cluttered with leftover files from Windows, your programs, or just from browsing the web. We’ve got the cure.
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.
Temporary system files
Fix your PC problems
Fixes hard disk errors
Your PC accumulates a ton of wasteful data every day. But we’ve got your back. Our Automatic Maintenance regularly removes these junk files for you. Automagically.
Cleans up your browser and disk
We remove the leftover cache files and traces from your browser, programs, and Windows.
Removes broken shortcuts
Rediscover your desktop’s wallpaper all over again by deleting all those “dead” shortcuts you never use.
Cleans up your registry
The registry plays a critical role in any Windows operating system, so issues here can result in program crashes and error messages. We fix your registry automatically as part of Avast Cleanup’s regular maintenance.
Over time, your hard disk file and folder structure could become damaged, leading to data loss and crashes. Our Disk Doctor prevents errors and cures your disk 24/7. Here’s what we check and fix:
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 fixes them in no time.
Files on your disk can become corrupt for various reasons, such as sudden power losses. Our Disk Doctor detects such errors and tries to fix them accordingly.
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.

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
According to our data, over 55% of all installed applications worldwide are outdated, leading to potentially critical security issues. Our Software Updater helps patch security holes for you silently, 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 on earth, 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. Software Updater installs the updates for you automatically, so the next time you open your favorite app, any new features will be ready to go.
