Performance Scan

The Performance Scan option allows WinZip® to scan your computer to see if it is running at peak performance. After the scan is completed, you will receive a summary of any issues found and any recommendations to fix the issues found.

If you have the WinZip System Utilities Suite installed on your computer, clicking on this button will start a Smart PC Care scan using the WinZip System Utilities Suite.

If you don’t have the WinZip System Utilities Suite installed, the WinZip System Scanner will execute and scan your computer.


The Performance Scan checks your computer for the following issues:

  • Junk files and folders
  • Internet and other privacy traces
  • Registry errors
  • Registry fragments

If the scan finds any issues, you can click the Fix Problems button for further information on how to fix the issues.
