Avast! is launching a new product, called GrimeFighter. It is supposed to "clean" the computer. The demo shows the my computer needs 15 adjustments in registry to improve efficiency, should remove a BHO from my browser and I have 1 active service of some "garbage" application.
These finds are not documented, just "listed"
I checked my computer succesively with Ccleaner, Glaty Utilities and Tune Up, with no change in this "report". So, according to GrimeFighter none of these well recognized apps could clean or remove even ONE of those problems.
Now, my opinion is that even if GrimeFighter is a product of Avast, it is a fake and a scam!

They all make up their own specifications. So we really have no idea. I do know most of them report things I know are not EVIL.. :lol:
