What is junkware?

Junkware is unwanted software that takes up space on your device and slows it down. Junkware is often preinstalled on your computer or phone, or bundled with legitimate software downloads.

Junkware goes by many additional names: bloatware, crapware, PUP (potentially unwanted program), PUA (potentially unwanted application). Some junkware can even be malicious software and may track what you do online or display ads.

Even if you never open a junkware app, it still takes up space and can consume your RAM and CPU power by running secretly in the background. That’s why we definitely recommend junkware removal.

How can I remove junkware?

To manually remove junkware, find what you don’t need and follow the steps to delete the unnecessary app from your PC. Sort through your system to dig up and delete old registry entries, dead shortcuts, old cache files, and other temporary files that were attached to the junkware app.

Not sure where to look? That’s why we recommend a JRT like AVG TuneUp, which will search and destroy all digital traces left behind from an uninstalled app. It will also help you identify which apps are actually junkware and can be safely removed.

How do I use AVG’s junkware removal tool?

Developed by world-class cybersecurity experts, AVG’s JRT cleaner is safe and easy to use. Just fire up the app, go to the Unnecessary Programs screen, and choose what to remove. You’ll see a star rating from our reputation system to help you identify what should go. Not sure if you should remove a particular app?
