Avast Cleanup Premium Now Auto-Updates 30 of the World’s Top Installed PC Applications

With 55% of the most installed applications out-of-date, Avast Software Updater feature takes the pain out of keeping PCs in top shape

Avast, the global leader in consumer cybersecurity products, released the latest version of its flagship PC optimization tool, Avast Cleanup, which now includes Automatic Software Updater and Automatic Maintenance features.

Avast Cleanup’s new functions ensure that the third party apps that are most often installed on PCs worldwide are kept up-to-date, while detecting critical errors and stopping resource-draining apps which could impair device performance.

“Our Avast PC Trends Report 2019 shows that people are holding onto their PCs for longer, with the average age of a home PC now being six years. This means we are seeing performance and security issues beginning to cause consumers real pain when using their PC,” said Ondrej Vlcek, President, Consumer, Avast. “Even out of the box, PCs come with a lot of pre-installed programs and as people add their own favorites, it’s easy for them to become bloated and slow down over a relatively short period of time. Keeping all of these programs up-to-date also quickly becomes a challenge. Our new features are designed to help users with exactly these issues.”

Outdated software programs cause a host of issues on PCs, especially with older models, including security and compatibility issues which are often updated through manufacturer patches. Performance issues, such as frequent crashing, and missing features and functionality within programs is also a problem that comes with outdated software.

Automating both software updates and routine maintenance makes it easier than ever for consumers to keep their PC in peak condition as well as ensuring they don’t miss out on the latest features for their favourite applications.
