updating 3rd party apps on my pc
« on: September 28, 2021, 12:04:41 PM »
hi, I'm sorry if this is a FAQ but I did a forum search and couldn't find any posts.
Avast Cleanup Premium has a function enabled to update 3rd party apps found on my pc.  That's great, love that, however, it managed to only find 6(!) apps, although it has been running since months now.  The found apps are : Firefox, ccleaner, Dropbox, Steam, VLC and 7-zip.  I can understand that not all 3rd party apps are supported, but only 6 seems insane, considering I have a lot of installed applications.
Is this a known issue?
