Don't care about all the pointless bickering here, don't care when/why it was installed on my PC (though I get why others do), I just don't understand why it won't show exactly what is going to be removed if you run the thing, who in their right mind would use this?!  You've gotta be kidding me...

It does show what will be removed. It may not explain what the items are. You'll need to do your own research.
Here's a video and at the end, it does list what it's found before you decided what to fix.

I downloaded GRIME FIGHTER months ago and it was not easy. I did not have any improvement after I downloaded. Few days ago, the avast antivirus, request to update the system and I did.
From that point, grime fighter disappeared and now is not even available in the options of avast.
I contacted the assistance and they said to downloaded again the base version, which I tryied and got in to a loop, with no rsults.
Maybe they needed my 29 euros for a drink....
never again...

Make sure it was removed from your system and then download and re-install if you're still interested in using it.
If not, maybe you can get a refund.
Download it from: http://www.avast.com/en-us/grimefighter

I used Avast without problems for some time, but stupid enough I accepted an update and paid for it. Now I have no computer at all. After clicking on Grimefighter I couldn't use the scanner, said no connection which was wrong. After restarting the computer window7 starts up but after a few seconds the screen fills up with colored stripes and every thing is locked. I really regret not having read all the negatives about Grimefighter before.
Anyone having a similar problem?
