specifications

Avast Browser Cleanup is an approachable tool developed to remove unnecessary, unwanted and even dangerous add-ons and toolbars from web browser to ensure a smoother online navigational experience. It offers support for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

Clear-cut installer and interface

After a fast setup operation that requires minimal user intervention, you are welcomed by an attractive interface, represented by a flat-looking window split into multiple panes, where you can tinker with program settings as well as IE, Firefox and Chrome options separately.

Determine the safety level of toolbars

The utility comes bundled with its own rating system to determine the safety level of installed add-ons and toolbars which you can remove. However, this doesn't mean that you cannot disable any such third-party components, whether they can be trusted or not.

Seamlessly remove third-party toolbars

Apart from the removal option that proceeds with uninstalling the target component, Avast Browser Cleanup also has an ignore feature which basically hides any components from the list you deem as trustworthy and decide to keep.

Furthermore, you can restore a specific search provider and homepage to IE, Chrome or Firefox, ask the application to automatically exclude add-ons with a good rating, stop it from regularly checking browsers for toolbars with a bad user rating, as well as select another UI language.

Evaluation and conclusion

The tool worked smoothly throughout our evaluation, without hanging, crashing or prompting error messages. CPU and RAM consumption was minimal, so it didn't hamper system performance.

Too bad that it doesn't offers support for additional web browsers. Nevertheless, Avast Browser Cleanup offers a simple and effective means of removing unwanted toolbars and add-ons from IE, Chrome and Firefox, and it can be seamlessly handled by anyone.
