Open the Avast user interface.
From the main menu, select Scan, then Scan for viruses, and then click Quarantine (Virus Chest) at the bottom of the screen, ...and the Virus Chest window appears.
 
If there is a list it will be there.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hi Marioo,

 

If you open Avast and hover over scan,and select >"Scan for performance issues " allow scan to run.

 

You will then see a screen with xx No of issues, click on "Details", this will take you to another screen with drop down arrows.

 

These will list all the problems(including unnecessary apps)

 

Hope that helps  Good luck

 

Hedge

 

Up to you whether you pay to have them removed or not (Avast wants money)

Avast Cleanup

Avast Cleanup is a new optimization tool which replaces the old GrimeFighter product that clears disk space and speeds up your system.


Avast GrimeFighter ("Scan for performance issues" option)

If you do not see a Scan for performance issues option upon opening Avast Antivirus 2015 user interface and selecting the Scan section, please check again in 5-10 minutes. If after 10 minutes you still do not see it and you meet all the system requirements, then Avast Antivirus 2015 has determined that your system is incompatible with running Avast GrimeFighter for other reasons.
