Does Avast have registry cleaner?

Hi,

yes, Avast Cleanup includes registry cleaning and it is part of a bigger feature we call "Maintenance".
If you navigate to the main dashboard it is the feature on the very left side and once you click it, it starts a scan where you can see that "Broken registry items" is part of it.

Regards,
Martin.

Thank you very much!
Unfortunately, this feature detects and eliminates very few wrong entries.
For example, Avast Cleanup Premium hits approx. 20-40, in contrast to Advanced System Optimizer 332 and Chily Registry Cleaner 328 results.
Is it possible that this will be improved in the future?

Best regards

Advanced System Optimiser and Chily Registry cleaner are typical snake oil programs that report many issues in your system to scare you and then want money to repair, don't trust such companies and their scamware programs.

Thx!
I have a different opinion about this.
All I wanted to know was whether this development was to be expected in the future.

Hi,

thanks for the report, we will take a look at the two other products you mentioned and try to compare them with our Registry Cleaner.
If there will be anything we could improve in our engine, we will do it.

Best regards.
