What’s slowing me down?

The more programs you install and use, the slower your PC becomes for three main reasons.

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
Switch on Sleep Mode to freeze any program that’s slowing you down. While asleep, it won’t use up any resources.
Wake up
Launch the program you put to sleep, and let our smart algorithm automatically enable all of its background activity.
...and back to bed
Once you’re done using the program, we automatically put it back to sleep to stop it from slowing you down.
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

Junk programs and bloatware removal
Beware of bloatware
Your PC could be slowed down by bloatware — programs like trial versions, unwanted toolbars, or preinstalled software you never asked for. These files take up space and cause performance issues, but thanks to Avast Cleanup, you can get rid of them.
Clean it all up
Take the guesswork out of removing bloatware with our cloud-based reputation system. Ratings from people all over the world help you figure out what to keep. If you’re afraid to uninstall, we can temporarily put files in quarantine for you until you decide.

Defrag & care for your hard disk

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.
