Anti virus programs

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use Avasti premier virus protection.  It has another feature called Grime protection.  An initial run showed some issues.  Please let me know if this extra protection or to keep my pc optimized without the grime, would be a useful asset, or is just a waste of money as it may cause more problems than solutions.  Thank u.

It's helpful. But like anything, it's not perfect. But it generally causes no harm, either.

as long as its part of the antivirus package then it shouldnt cause any issues only the additional cost. I use avast free and ive had no problems on all of my PC's. I also use malwarebytes which is free. this picks up any issues that the AV wont

Basically it is cleanup utility which aims at improving the performance of the system as well. If you wanted to read on it further please refer to the link below.

However it has no ill effect on the system as far as performance is concerned.
