Avast Software Cleanup Beta-Test [12.4.49]

• Removed temporary script execution
• Improved install location lookup in registry
• Updated backend communication
• Increased performance
• Added logging of script execution

Download:

Notes:
• The product should already know about most of the common good rated and also about most of the crapware/bloatware. With your usage the system will automatically improve, so please be patient or give us feedback.
• Currently you can easily remove (almost) every software - even the good ones. This can obviously cause damage to your system. So be careful!
• Avast Software Cleanup will create a System Restore Point. In case you notice problems after removal you can revert you system to the last state.
• Software in the trash bin can be restored only if you keep Software Cleanup installed as well.
• Software Cleanup can be kept installed on your PC. It does not run in the background and therefore does not consume any resources if it's not active.
• During first run Software Cleanup will scan your computer for additional information which it requires for removal. This means there'll be some low background load for a few minutes. If you try to remove some software before this background scanning has finished, the removal process might take more time than usual.
• For removal Software Cleanup usually will not call the appropriate products uninstaller, instead it'll use its own uninstall technology. This is usually faster and additionally prevents any additional crapware which is sometimes installed during the removal process of crapware from being installed.
• Critical system software, drivers etc. will be removed by calling the appropriate uninstaller only. This is for safety reasons. (Later on - after beta - we might decide not to allow removal of such software at all.) Such products can not be moved to the trash bin as well - the appropriate button will not be availabe.
• Software Cleanup has an integrated update system which will ensure that you always have the latest build. Therefore you don't need to download and install new versions.

Feedback:

Hinweis: Avast Software Cleanup currently is a technology beta only. It's going to be integrated into Avast's other programs later on. So please, don't be bothered by the slightly outdated UI look and feel. Yet it's unclear if it'll survive as a standalone product.

Avast Ransomware Decryption Tools [Updated]

Avast introduces a new decryption tool that will help Mac users infected with the FindZip ransomware decrypt their files. Late February 2017, a new type of ransomware for Mac was discovered. This ransomware, called FindZip, infects users by pretending to be a cracked version of commercial applications, such as Adobe Premiere Pro. Once it infects a Mac, it utilizes a ZIP encryption to encrypt documents - the exact same scheme used by the Windows ransomware, Bart, which we decrypted last summer.

Added Decryptor:
• FindZip
