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. TuneUp Utilities includes
everything from a startup optimizer to a driver defragmenter,
overall speed optimizer, Windows Registry cleaner, and more.
The overall organization of the included tools is quite simple,
and TuneUp puts all of its considerable features within easy reach.
Included are both one-step optimizers–for when you want to follow
a click-once-and-then-done routine–and in-depth optimizers that
let you pick and choose among recommendations.
Even if you think you’ve already whipped your PC into shape,
you’ll most likely find some excellent help here. For example, when
using the Quick Optimization feature, I found half a dozen programs
that I didn’t realize ran when my system started. Telling the
program to stop them from running automatically sped up my boot-up,
and cut down on RAM use.
There’s plenty more here as well, including a very nice Rescue
Center that lets you undo any changes the program made to your
system, as well as gives you access to System Restore.
Given that this program doesn’t come cheap at $50, should you
buy it after trying it? That depends on the state of your system,
your time, and your pocketbook. You can find many separate, free
utilities that clean your Registry, hard disk, and system, and
perform similar tasks as TuneUp Utilities. But you won’t find a
free one that does it all. So if you’re looking for a single,
do-it-all tool, TuneUp Utilities may well will be worth it for
