windows live slowing down pc
« on: September 09, 2018, 10:14:57 PM »
Avast keeps popping up telling me that windows live is slowing down my pc as well as a list of other programs which arnt even active a couple of which are no longer installed and a game i have installed but have never even launched yet, it gives me the option to suspend the apps which when clicked takes me to an area to buy cleanup. now i dont know if any of this is legit as i have not noticed any slow downs or if its just Avasts scummy way of advertising which i should have disabled.

i can also no longer find an option for ads in the menu.

Settings for popups are still there:

Unless you plan to pay for the pay for the Cleanup Component, remove it.
