CCleaner for Android     http://www.piriform.com/blog/2014/4/3/ccleaner-for-android
I have it on my tablet but so far, it seems very basic. I don't see the option to clear the clipboard at all. I know it's in beta and more features will likely be added but for now, it's not that useful.

Microsoft has toughened its criteria for classifying programs as adware and gave developers three months to conform with the new principles or risk having their programs blocked by the company's security products.

The most important change in Microsoft's policy is that adware programs will be blocked by default starting July 1. In the past such programs were allowed to run until users chose one of the recommended actions offered by the company's security software.


In addition to following these ad display guidelines, programs need to provide a standard uninstall method in the Windows control panel or the browser add-on management interface, if the program operates as a browser extension or toolbar. The corresponding uninstall entries must contain the same program names as displayed in the generated ads.

Researchers from antivirus vendor Avast named unwanted browser toolbars and extensions as one of the biggest problems for users in 2013. Such toolbars are often difficult or even impossible for average users to fully uninstall because they change their names and identifiers on almost every new computer to prevent detection and removal by security products, they said in a blog post at the end of December.

    How to get your data from Windows XP to a new PC
Remember that avast! Antivirus still protects your Windows XP system if you've decided to keep it.

avast! SecureLine Is it worth the price ???



Even Google thinks I've moved:

Since the move isn't permanent, and I haven't yet acquired an accent,
I think I'll leave my language as English (US). :)
For someone who does a lot of traveling, and spends a lot of time on Public WiFi,
this product is a must.
Remember that your data is also encrypted and therefor, if intercepted, is totally
useless to the person or entity intercepting your data.
I may choose to use the free version of avast! but, avast! SecureLine
Is Certainly Worth the Price. :)
