Bob is Avast's guinea pig ;)

Looks like it is part of Grimefighter/Cleanup.

Certainly looks like GrimeFighter and I flatly refuse to install it until it is much more flexible. Even then I'm no fan of these clean-up type tools.

@ Bob
I suspect that you ran a Smart Scan, isn't the GrimeFighter (limited free version) included in the Smart Scan.

It's Avast Cleanup. The dialog should popup when application uninstall is detected. There is no settings yet but it's in plan.

Something Avast forgot to mention in the features of the New Beta ???
Is this available as a standalone product ???

Hi Bob,

It isn't available as a standalone, it's a module inside the Avast Cleanup (formerly GrimeFighter).

I agree that we didn't give enough information on the beta so testers were aware of all the changes that took place.  We'll learn from this and be more transparent the next time.

Thanks,

Davidek
