New Feature near mandatory, in my humble opinion

Recommended Posts

New to ESET, love it so far. Caught a few issues on my brand new rig.

Have to say though, if all the computer cleaning applications are marked as potentially harmful (not only the programs themselves but many of the websites), ESET should be providing us with at least a junk/cache/uninstalled programs cleaner. 

Best,

Actually, Microsoft provides one built into the OS; Disk Cleanup.

This has been asked before. Some AVs do Include these but it's debate if it is a security feature as it's more of a clean up utility than a security feature. For that reason eset has up to know focused on just security.

I should add they do have a tool for restoring windows settings back to their default settings which can be used when trying to recover from an infection. However this feature is only recommended when dealing with malware leftovers.

As itman has also mentioned Windows itself does have a cleanup feature
