Step 2

Scan results

Many programs clog up your machine by automatically storing temporary and old junk data deep in places you'd never know to look. Thankfully, AVG PC TuneUp knows exactly where that data is hidden and finds it for you with a simple scan.

Click on System Cache & Logs and then click on Show to view all the unwanted clutter.

To free up that space, just click on the Clean button.

AVG Disk Cleaner

Disk Cleaner removes unwanted clutter from over 200 programs and Windows. Here is some of what it gets rid of:

 


Crash reports (”Memory dump”)

Windows produces memory dumps containing relevant analytical information every time your PC crashes.




 

Windows error reports

Whenever a program crashes, Windows generates a report that contains information regarding the nature of the crash.

 


Lost clusters

Disk repair utilities (such as Microsoft’s very own Chkdsk) detect bad clusters and try to restore the damaged data. This recovery data is saved as new files on your hard disk. Unfortunately, in most cases, these files do not contain usable data since the original information can often not be restored.

 


Installer files

Just by their installation, programs leave behind a lot of temporary files that clog up your hard disk. Disk Cleaner cleans up Microsoft Installer (MSI) leftovers safely and reliably.

 


Cache

These are temporary files that are left on your disk by programs and Windows. This includes, for example, the font cache used by Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) programs and the bitmap cache of the remote desktop application.

 


Log files

Windows and 3rd-party programs often record logs of their operations, which can clog up your hard disk over time.

 


Temporary system files

Windows and various other programs create temporary files to cache their current operations. These files can contain personal information which might not get deleted once that operation is done.

 


Old backups

These are restore points that the operating system creates to revert back to previous states. They also include downloaded Windows updates that have already been installed.

 


Thumbnails

Temporary thumb files created and displayed by Windows-explorer.

 


“Recently used files” lists

Many programs, including Windows, create lists of files you recently opened. While that’s convenient, it may also be a privacy risk. Disk Cleaner helps with cleaning this up.

 
 
 

Step 3

Clean up your browser

Whenever you browse the web, hidden leftover files get created that sometimes even your browsers can’t track. That’s where Browser Cleaner can help.

Click on Browser data (globe icon). Check what you want to delete (read the pane on the right for more details) and click the Clean button!

PC TuneUp clean browser

Done! It’s that simple.

Your PC should have more free space for the things you love.
