Avast Cleanup Mac is a secure system cleaning and optimization program that helps you boost your computer’s speed.
Without the additional cleanup that could remove the remnants, applications leave huge amounts of data in the registry after deleting them, which can cause your computer to suffer from poor performance and increase the disk space it takes up. Avast Cleanup can meticulously delete unwanted files and set up your system for faster performance.
In this article, you will find instructions on how to install the application, as well as ways to solve problems that may arise during the installation of the program. We will also cover the main functions with their detailed characteristics
Process of installation
Before you start, check that no apps or antivirus programs are running on your PC.
The first thing to do is to go to the official Avast website and download the Avast Cleanup Mac installation file. Then open the uploaded file and click “Continue”. Read the Avast User License Agreement and then accept these terms for further action.
Press the installation button to continue with the setup by default, or Change the installation location… If you need to change the settings. If a prompt pops upon the display, use Touch ID to permit downloading, or tap “Use password…”, then input the administrator code and press “Install the software”. When the installation is complete, click the “Close” button.
Fixing potential problems
If you have problems during the installation, ensure that your computer corresponds to the system specifications.
These requirements include having an ApplemacOS 10th or 11th version, a Mac computer with a 64-bit processor, and at least 68 MB of free space on the hard drive.
If the requirements meet the program demands but you still can’t install it, restart your computer and try downloading again. In case of repeated problems contact Avast technical support.
