About cleaning up unused data

The operating system accumulates temporary or unused files over time. These files may use up a lot of disk space, thus impairing system performance, and may also be exploited by malware.

The temporary files are created at the launch of any applications or operating systems. But some of them remain undeleted even after you close the application or operating system. Kaspersky Total Security includes the Unused Data Cleaning Wizard.

Unused Data Cleaner can detect and remove the following files:

Besides the deletion of unused files from the system, the wizard deletes files which may contain confidential data (passwords, user names, registration form data). However, for complete deletion of such data, we recommend using the Privacy Cleaner Wizard.
