Windows 7: Avast cleanup premium results

Avast cleanup premium results

How the heck can Avast Report all this Junk on my computer? I assume it is somewhat bogus, but I'm sure that things could be cleaned up a little also. I don't do much maintenance, but don't have a lot of junk lying around either.

Broken Registry Items: My System is pretty clean I think, and have run CCleaner a few times when I got infected.
System Junk: How could I have all this junk on my pc?
Programs Slowing your pc: Programs, LOL...I don't have all that many programs running on my pc, Installed yes, but not running.

What the heck?
Can someone point me to a good tutorial to get things cleaned up if they indeed need it?

Thanks, Nasty7

If you use Chrome you probably have a lot of programs on the background. Open Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) - Processes to see what is running.

I don't understand? What do you mean by Programs, what programs? I have everything disabled in Chrome except for AdBlockPlus, including Google Docs, Docs, Sheets and Slides, all disabled. You think Avast is counting all the Chrome Tabs that are open? Perhaps I should take this up with Avast but wanted to get an unbiased opinion.

Thanks for your time, Nasty7

I have eliminated many startup programs and processes and still have 49 processes running on the background. Half is windows system and half is from the user (antivirus, mouse, Skype, Firefox etc)
