While Aura Antivirus does not have a specific speed-up or tune-up feature, many of the suspicious files that Aura Antivirus finds, contains, and then removes could help speed up your computer.
Malware and Spyware can be slowing you down!
If your computer is running slow, freezes up, or constantly crashes, it may be the result of malicious infection. These infections can use a large amount of your computer's memory, storage, and other resources to bog down your system.
They can even stop some programs or files from opening!
How do these infections get in?
- Downloading untrusted applications
- Downloading untrusted browser extensions
- Opening an email attachment from an unknown sender
So what can I do?

Reboot Your Computer
Rebooting (Restarting) your computer gives you a clean slate. Many of the programs and software installed on your computer leave behind trash that needs to be cleaned up. This is normal but you need to reboot your computer on a regular basis. Some reboot their computers every day, some do it every week.
Check for Updates
Not only should you keep your computer up to date to help speed up your computer but is also necessary so your computer receives the latest security updates and patches. Microsoft and Apple are always sending out updates to keep you and your computer protected.

- From here you can follow the Mac recommendations or look through your files and programs to determine what can be removed. Don't forget to empty the trash!
