"From an IT Pro: do not buy this!"

September 22, 2013  |  By StrattonHouse

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2014 14.0.1001.146

Pros

none.
Zero stars was not an available rating.

Cons

I have worked for years with PC Matic from PC Pitstop.com and I know it works brilliantly. I was prompted to try AVG PC TuneUp so I ran an A-B test. I knew my PC was running great, so I tried AVG PC TuneUp. It reported thousands of problems. Without running 'fix', I ran PC Matic, and it found NOTHING. So which was lying? I set a restore point (ALWAYS do this when testing) and ran TuneUp again. Again thousands of faults, but they were all different than the first run! So I clicked 'Fix', which only took seconds. Since AVG PC now declared my PC to be perfectly clean, I immediately ran TuneUp again. Again, thousands of reported faults, and different from either previous runs. To find out if it created new problems, I ran PC Matic again, with no problems reported.

Clearly, AVG PC TuneUp just randomly generates the faults list.

Unlike johnboyk, oscarius3 and singularity607, my 15-day trial did no harm to my PC, but I'm a fanatic and run 4 independent system watchdogs.

Summary

AVG PC TuneUp is a complete fraud. If you just burn your money, at least you'd get a little warmth from it.

DO buy PC Matic (http://pcpitstop.com/store/pcmatic_security_scan.asp). It cover 5 PCs for a year, you can always get it for $49.99, and often get them down to $24.99. You AVG fans may find it odd, but PC Matic actually does exactly what it says, and my PC always runs like new!

"DO NOT USE THIS UNLESS YOU WISH TO BUY A NEW COMPUTER"

September 20, 2013  |  By johnboyk

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2014 14.0.1001.146

Pros

None at all

Cons

Promises,promises,promises, non of which are fulfilled.I'd used AVG's free antivirus for years and never had a problem, and never spent a penny.I thought I owed them and decided to pay for something for a change. I've recommended them to family,work colleagues and friends, but never ever again.
My laptop is totally useless now. It freezes up when browsing, drops out when it's booting up, shortcuts don't work,it's slower than it's ever been and sometimes won't shutdown. I have been in touch with them, and I do have a case number, and I have complained and I have ask for a refund but to be honest I've got better things to do with my life. So don't touch AVG and be happy

Summary

No Stars wasn't an available option .

"DO NOT USE THIS, MY NEW COMPUTER IS NOW A BRICK"

September 18, 2013  |  By oscarius3

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2014 14.0.1001.146

Pros

NONE. WHATSOEVER.

Cons

Appears to shutdown and delete important aspects of your OS/hardware.

My new computer is potentially wrecked.

THEY CHARGE FOR THIS ****!

Customer support (after an hour and a half wait until 1:30am) said it was a fault in my hardware and nothing to do with AVG.

Summary

Don't let this monstrosity of a programme into your life.

"DO NOT INSTAL - worse than a virus."

September 07, 2013  |  By singularity607

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2014 14.0.1001.146

Pros

NONE WHATSOEVER. Well one - made me realise never to trust AVG again.

Cons

I bought a new HP PC on 19th August 2013 and by today 7th September 2013 I had it finally all set up to my liking. I had installed AVG anti-virus and been receiving prompts to give AVG PC TUNEUP a one day free trial. Don't know why I did but I did and it destroyed my profile. I couldn't even access the Control Panel but I found that my only route online was to open AVG PC TUNE (the only program I could open) and indicate that I wished to purchase the product and with that by magic I was online. There I found out how I could uninstall this virus from my PC. After all that is what it is. DO NOT INSTAL AND NO WAY PAY FOR IT. I have had far less trouble with real viruses and Malware.

Summary

DO NOT INSTAL AVG PC TUNEUP - SKULL AND CROSS- BONES
