Smart Scan Performance Issues
« on: January 25, 2019, 05:01:18 PM »
I run this scan quite often as a routine  check.

It results in listing performance issues which I can see, BUT then I wish to
select those issues which I feel can be deleted. There is NO way I am going
to allow a cleaner program to blanket delete things from my PC unless I authorise it.

So how can I authorise those items which I decide can be deleted ?

To just click RESOLVE is a BIG NO-NO, unless when RESOLVE is clicked, a means
of user selection and approval is given.
So my bottom line question is - what happens when I click "RESOLVE" ?

Thanks very much, that was brilliant Pondus.

BUT it ended up rather deceitfully  as a PAY job to delete these items.
"We find 'em - you pay to get rid of 'em"
No thanks Avast, I will manage perfectly well on my own with the help of CCleaner plus other cleaners
and NO paying for the pleasure.

Very positive albeit  a small thread.
