Cute, but deadly. AVAST minions fight Grime!

minionsThey might look like funny characters from an animated movie, but the avast! GrimeFighter minions are a deadly force against the grime that accumulates in your computer over time. This crack team of animated minions brings AVAST users new technology that speeds, tunes up, and extends the lifespans of PCs. avast! GrimeFighter is being launched officially today in 14 languages.

“With avast! GrimeFighter we’ve integrated exceptional technology into our product that will help users benefit from their valuable PCs longer, as the minions decontaminate them from unnecessary bloatware,” said AVAST Chief Executive Officer Vince Steckler. “We are glad to offer this new product to our users to optimize their PC performance and are sure our diligent minions will put a smile on their faces.”

The Minion Team

Officer Pete, a police officer with an over-sized mustache leads the team. Other minions with names like Zilch, Torque and Dale Jumpshot, Jr. wipe browser caches, look for hardware problems, analyze your Internet speed, and disable bloatware, such as unnecessary programs and software that may have been pre-installed.

Collaboratively, the other minions examine security settings of popular applications and wireless networks, analyze the PC’s memory, hard drive, CPU and files to provide the user with a report at the end of the scan. The report is straightforward, with an option of viewing more detailed results.

Spring clean your PC

AVAST welcomes Jumpshot fans

BlogJumsphot_Move_Avast

Jumpshot was a cool company even before AVAST Software made them a part of the world’s most trusted antivirus family. They told us about the awesome fan base following the company, so we’re pretty excited to welcome all you cool Jumpshot kids as you make the move from Jumpshot’s current blog, Facebook, Pinterest, and most Twitter accounts to AVAST’s blog and social media outlets.

The AVAST social media team shares the latest news, fun facts, and contest information on our Facebook page, on Twitter and Google+. You can also discover news, tips, and advice on the latest security and privacy threats right here on the AVAST blog.

As part of the integration into AVAST, Jumpshot’s name has been changed to GrimeFighter. We all agree that it’s a great way to describe the war Officer Pete and his band of minions fight against the grime that accumulates in computers everywhere. Watch this blog and our social media pages for announcements on  when GrimeFighter becomes a part of AVAST products.

We invite you to continue your relationship with the former Jumpshot here on AVAST. Become an AVAST fan, follower, and blog reader to stay informed about the latest in security and privacy.  As you make the transition with us, we ask that you take a look around, and give the most trusted antivirus software in the world, avast! Free Antivirus, or one of our premium paid products a try. You can compare features of our products here, and look for deals at the avast! Store.

Thank you and welcome to AVAST!
