This article is relevant to Kaspersky Security Cloud — Family and Personal.

Using the PC Cleaner feature of Kaspersky Security Cloud, you can: 

  • Find and remove applications and browser extensions which you rarely use, or which were installed without your consent. 
  • Send Kaspersky Lab data about an application that annoys you or causes problems.    

Kaspersky Security Cloud scans all installed applications and browser extensions to find the following reasons for removal:   

  • They provide false information. 
  • They were installed together with another application, without consent or forcibly.  
  • They display anonymous messages or banners, concealing how they work or the means of closing them.  
  • They slow down computer startup and performance. 
  • Not supported by the vendor and contain vulnerabilities. 
  • They are rarely used. 
  • They collect and transmit your data, and can redirect or block traffic.  
  • They modify the settings and behavior of the operating system or browser, or restrict the capability to modify settings.

You can manually run an analysis of installed applications and browser extensions or configure a start schedule.
