What is bloatware?

Bloatware, also called crapware and junkware, is useless software that finds its way onto your computer. It generally comes preinstalled on new PCs, or bundled together with other legitimate software you downloaded. Some common types of bloatware come in the form of free trials, toolbars, and apps made by your PC manufacturer and preloaded on your machine, like financial or weather apps. Other bloatware looks and behaves a lot like adware and spyware, which are types of malicious software.


Not only is bloatware useless, it also eats up your resources by consuming disk space. Sometimes it runs in the background — even if you’ve never intentionally used it — where it can gobble up your RAM and CPU power.

How do I remove bloatware?

You can remove bloatware manually by identifying programs you don’t want and following the normal steps to uninstall the software. But it can be difficult to sort through all of your apps and identify those you truly don’t need. And after you uninstall a program, it can leave remnants behind in the form of old registry entries, dead shortcuts, and temporary files. That’s why using a dedicated bloatware removal tool like AVG TuneUp makes getting rid of bloatware so easy. We’ll identify the software you no longer need and make sure to remove all the files and other leftover junk connected with it.


Unsure if you want to remove a particular app? Our cloud-based reputation system will help you decide, by telling you how other users have rated the app. And if you’re still unsure, we’ll help you put the app in quarantine where it’s frozen and you can decide later if you’re ready to actually delete it.

Is AVG’s Software Uninstaller feature safe to use?

Absolutely! AVG TuneUp was developed by optimization experts, and we continue to improve it with every release. Safely deep-clean your entire PC and optimize your disk, browser, Windows operating system, and more than 200 apps with our expertise.
