Forget TV ads – clean your slow PC with a product you can trust

Avast_Cleanup_Housekeeping Get rid of junk you didn’t know you had, with our most advanced cleaning tool yet.

Many of us use the same laptop for multiple purposes. If you’re like me, you watch Netflix movies, answer business emails, and do personal banking on the same machine. It’s no surprise that it eventually gets sluggish with junk – everything from the leftover files of uninstalled programs to accumulated browser cache or unwanted toolbars.

We redesigned our Cleanup software so that with a single click you can run a scan, easily see what scrap files you want to remove, and then wipe away up to 30GB of junk from your PC.

Mr. Robot Review: eps2.4_m4ster-s1ave.aes

This week’s episode of Mr. Robot had an usual start, more unusual than usual. The episode begins with Elliot, Darlene and their parents in a 90s style sitcom. ALF makes an appearance, yes you read correctly, ALF, and he even runs over and kills Gideon! Gideon is, of course, not Gideon in this 90s episode, instead he is a cop who is looking for a family that has a person locked up in their trunk. Elliot’s family is the family that has someone locked up in their trunk — Tyrell! Vulture wrote a nice article explaining how this scene came to be and how this was Mr. Robot’s way of distracting Elliot from all of the pain he is in in real life.
