A custom cleaning option like CCleaner has would be nice---

You need to know how to use the Advanced Options in the Security tab in Properties of the folders.  8)

I have thought about it & think Avast should offer a free version & a paid version like CCleaner does.

After trying a free version people MAY be inclined to buy the paid version.

And DO NOT offer versions with the automatic payment renewal turned on.
That is a crappy way to do business.  :(  >:(

I decided to try the 30 day trial of clean up as CC only does so much. Program would start the scan, then claim an error, suggesting the system needs restarting before it'll work. After 2 restarts, it still failed to get past the error/restart message. I unticked the self-defense module and it finally completed w/o issue. So you guys apparently have another bug related to the self-defense option, which is the 1st time in (10?) years roughly I ever encountered an issue.

This thread is about the beta version which installs for a year free.

You are using the regular cleanup I presume.
That thread is here---

I can't help with the 30 day trial since I have the paid version which won't work at all.

I cleaned my browser data & had to log into Gmail & everything else.
It slowed down the loading of pages in my Opera Speed Dial page.
A real pain in the butt.
There should be an Undo button for this option if you use it.
I didn't see one offered in the Recover menu.

Hi,

first of all, sorry for the inconveniences.

This is an issue we are trying to resolve by adding a warning dialog which reminds you to save your work before cleaning or skip the browser cleaning step if you don't want to close the browser.
The reason why it is not available in Rescue Center is that if you want to clean something to save the disk space it would be counterproductive to create a backup which would occupy the same amount of space you just cleaned.

Best regards!

You have activated the product with a Paid license. This is not the Beta license which is built in the setup and used by default during the installation.
If would you install the product with the default Beta license you would see this:


Also the Beta license is completely free and it you won't be charged for using it.

Thanks.

Fix Problems User Text Correction Needed for Services Shutdown Problems
« Reply #21 on: July 26, 2017, 08:06:21 AM »
Cosmetic Bug:

Fix Problems shows a problem as follows:

Services may not have time to close before shutdown
Increase shutdown to 5 seconds to give them time to close.

When selecting FIX for the problem above the result reads:
Shutdown time has been changed to 15 seconds


If 5 seconds is the amount to increase, then the Fix should read 5 seconds, not 15 seconds.
If the increase is adding 5 seconds, the first item above should changed the word "to" to read "by".

Broken Registry Items List
« Reply #23 on: July 26, 2017, 08:19:21 AM »
In addition to listing broken registry entries, these entries could easily be hyperlinked to regedit such that the user may select an entry and have the option to see the actual entry in the registry. This issue is also relevant to other features in the beta.

These items in the list have no check boxes for exclusion from the maintenance operation. It seems to be all or nothing. This issue pervades many other of the features in the beta.
