Why is Avast still showing this?  I don't have Grime Fighter, or whatever it's called, installed on my computer.

How can it find evidence of Grime?

In all honesty, I and probably others can't really answer this question as we don't know where you are at regards avast version number you have and how you got there.

Updating from the avastUI may retain the information that you previously had GrimeFighter (in early avast 9.0 betas) or if you didn't do a custom install and specifically unchecked the GrimeFighter option.

Go to Control Panel/Uninstall a program/Avast/Uninstall-Change.Choose Change and uncheck Grime Fighter.
I did this after updating Avast from GUI although I didn't see that Grime Fighter was installed.

Avast updated itself to Version 9.2011 so I didn't see anything to tick or untick.  I'm using the free Version and I thought Grime Fighter came with a paid Version. 

@abruptum,
I've already done this 3 times and I saw nothing about Grime Fighter.

@abruptum

I done exactly what you told me to do and it showed nothing about Grime Fighter. Did not show anything to tick or untick.  Rebooted and nothing changed.

It will most likely be a separate paid product. :)

I don't understand why it shows "We've found evidence of Grime on your PC".

Grime Fighter is kind of greyed out but when I click on it the screenshot is what it shows.    ???

Well honestly I just dropped Iolo's System Mechanic because my subscription to it was about to expire, interestingly enough I found that my computer worked even better without it being installed.

So im honestly wondering how effective this is at improving performance when I noticed more improvement by uninstalling System Mechanic and using a 3rd party defragger and ccleaner to clean up junk.

That is weird.Did you see option to choose which components to install like Web Shield,Browser Protection etc. ?
One of the component is Grime Fighter.

No, I didn't see any options to choose anything.

Thanks.....no more Grime Fighter.  :)

The time prior to this change did not show anything to tick/not tick.

Merry Christmas.
