"From an IT Pro: do not buy this!"
Zero stars was not an available rating.
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.
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!
