Maintenance Scan Will Not Finish
« on: October 05, 2018, 09:45:08 PM »
All scans finish except "System Junk" which I left running in the latest case for 24 hours and it never finishes.

Any ideas?

I've been having the same problem. The dashboard says I'm at 100% tune up; but the Free Up space / System Junk section has been stuck at 50% for about 7 hours now.

Yeah the software is pretty much unusable at this point.  Fix problems is the only thing that completed.  Everything else is hung up.  If I can't scan within a reasonable amount of time then the software is no good to me and I'll be uninstalling it.

We really sorry that you are experiencing this problems. In the last version our product is calling some Windows libraries to clean Update files. In some cases this could take until 10 minutes. In theory you could experiment the same behavior if you call directly the same Windows functionalities. If the delay is so long we could have also a problem on our side. To help us to identify why this is happening, you could provide the log files in "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\AVAST Software\Tuneup\log"
Thanks very much

For what it's worth, I installed the latest version from the pinned post and the problem went away.  But the program as originally downloaded after purchase would not work.

Hello,

we are really sorry that you have troubles with finishing the scan.

In order to be able to help you I would like to ask you to send the log files so we can investigate where the problem is.
You can simply send them by executing our log collector utility from this path C:\Program Files (x86)\AVAST Software\Avast Cleanup\tulogcollector.exe.
Just please add your email address there so we can join the logs with your report here on the forum.

Thank you.

I have the same problem. Installed it yesterday and it has completely screwed up my PC. Scans keep running and I can't access anything. Absolute nightmare, I'm going to attempt to uninstall it.

I am having the same issue as these users, I am even stuck at the exact same percentage as 'onefatbiker'. Is there any fix yet? Not helpful to have a program that gets locked up and can therefore not do it's job.

Guys it would be helpful if you also do as Stellarman (Avast Team) asked of onefatbiker.

Hello everyone,

we've made a couple fixes in the latest version (18.2.5964) which should prevent this situation from happening.
Please wait until your product is updated to this version, try it again and let me know if you still experience this issue.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Hello,

Unfortunately even with the latest version the problem persists.

Scan for System Junk stucks at 50% and never finishes.

I am sorry, but I am a bit disappointed that with a 1 year paid subscription the product is not useable for 1.5 months now except for browser cleaning.

Can you give us any ETA when you actually fix the product please?

Thank you,

Having the same problem as everyone else. All scans except "System Junk" work fine. But "System Junk" scans get hung up at exactly 50%. I've uninstalled and reinstalled. I'm using the most up-to-date version (18.2 5964). This has been happening for months, making the program worthless.

As requested by the moderator, logs have been sent using the tulogcollector.exe
