    @eLPuSHeR Did you only installed Auslogics Windows Slimmer program and found malware ? Because I did a scan with Malwarebyes and Super Anti-Spyware both didn't find any. What scanner did you use ? Or by chance did you not unselect the other programs I mention not to install ?

    Yes I used AdwCleaner. It detected 4 issues even if it's a little nitpicky. Better safe than sorry I guess. On the other hand, I tested that Windows Slimmer program and I found it to be quite the snake oil. It doesn't do anything fancy you cannot do with built-in w10 utils.

    Back on topic:

    If you are low on space I would use the compact command to gain space as well as cleanup tool (cleanmgr.exe) and dism from command-line: e.g.

    dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup /resetbase

    This can take some time to complete, so be patient.

    What adwcleaner is picking up is the name Auslogics company as being a PUP because many of their software do have add ons ( PUP ). And again if one is careful not to install them the program Auslogics Windows Slimmer is okay free from malware . Many users that use computers are not tech savvy enough or even care to do such things as you mention . Nowadays many companies or program developers provide good free programs and they need to find ways in making some sore of cash, one just needs to be careful what they install when installing programs that are free and scan the program for malwares . Also, I believe and I might be wrong but if Auslogics Windows Slimmer wasn't a okay program to use this site here wouldn't allow it being posted .
