TuneUp Utilities: Automatic Maintenance For Your PC

by JL Beeken on 3-26-2009

TuneUp UtilitiesI’ve purposely stayed away from talking about this type of software, but the time has come. I highly recommend this software to all Window users. TuneUp Utilities. It will safely and thoroughly clean up your system and keep it in tip-top shape with one-click maintenance.

When you start the program, TuneUp will do a scan of your entire system and then give you recommendations under 3 major categories; Maintenance, Speed and Health. Just follow along. It explains what everything means as you go. It’s very user-friendly.

Early on in the process it does CHKDSK which takes awhile, but the rest of it goes by pretty fast.

When you’re through this section, go through the left-hand menu one by one for other options. You won’t need all of them but TuneUp leaves no stone unturned. It keeps a detailed log of every change made and the option to reverse any of them.

Automatic maintenance is scheduled for once a week, but anytime you want to you can open One-Click Maintenance and it will do a complete analysis and repair of all problems in seconds.

Take TuneUp Utilities for a test-drive. It’s free and fully-functional for 30 days and then $49.95 USD for use on 1, 2 or 3 PC’s.

“If you’re looking to tune up your PC, you won’t go wrong with this latest version of TuneUp Utilities. This software does a comprehensive job of cleaning up your PC to make sure it runs faster, more smoothly, and without problems. It´s one of the most comprehensive programs of its kind.”

Thank you so much for sharing this. I downloaded it and after the free trial period I bought it. It is fantastic. My daughter recently said her computer was freezing programs all the time. I suggested this one to her and she loves it too as it fixed numerous problems for her.

It’s worked well for me so far, and anything reliable (reliable being the key word) that can stave off the next OS installation is welcome. I shy away from most of this type of software because I’ve used things in the past that mucked things up to the point I didn’t know where else to turn. I’m not so techy that I can fix everything on my own.

This product sounds like just what I need for my older computer, however I am a senior citizen with less than $650 per month income, and I just cannot afford this service. Is there any way to stop this from popping up when I am in the middle of something? As I said my computer is older and slow and it takes a few minutes to gets this off of my screen. This is very annoying. Thanks for any help you can give me.

I have no idea what’s popping up on your computer or how I could be responsible for it. I simply wrote a blog post.

Will you please stop hounding me to buy your software? I made the mistake of accepting your trial period and now I can’t get rid of you. I do not want to buy your software, so get off my computer.

It’s not my software. It’s software that I use, like and wrote about. I’m only a writer, not a software manufacturer.

The trial that you accepted is a trial of TuneUp Utilities. If you’re having a problem with them, please contact them.

I’ve seen other people asking if TuneUp Utilities is a virus. No, it isn’t. It’s actually excellent computer maintenance software. It sounds like they’re using extremely aggressive sales tactics where they’ve left something on your computer that bugs you constantly.

I have no control over this. Please contact them. http://www.tune-up.com/company/contact/
