Pros

One-click maintenance: AVG PC TuneUp's initial setup is streamlined. There's really no room for error, since one-click optimization is the first option you see, giving a clear impression that PC TuneUp is hassle free.

Control: When AVG PC TuneUp discovers issues, it presents them in a pop-up window that lets you control which files to clean and which to delete. Highlight a file to reveal a short description of what it is and what it does to your Windows PC.

Clean design: PC TuneUp clearly shows you its process, from Registry scanning to defragmentation analysis. Though it shows warning icons for more system-critical issues, PC TuneUp generally avoids overzealous warnings and large, bold fonts that might give you a sense of pressure or panic.

Cons

Miscategorization: Sometimes it's questionable whether what PC TuneUp declares a problem is really a problem. During our tests, PC TuneUp reported a Windows Media Player option and a Firefox master password setting as errors under PC Health. Though keeping track of browser credentials is a good practice, alerts like these could confuse you about what kind of settings qualify as risks.

Limited trial use: In the trial, maintenance scanning is limited to three days, and the entire program is subscription based. Though the maintenance feature is effective, we find it hard to justify the asking price, nor do we see the app's advantage over free products without the peace of mind.

Bottom Line

AVG PC TuneUp is a well-designed and effective tool that mostly accomplishes what it claims. Its advantage lies in its streamlined user flow and one-click-friendly design. Though PC TuneUp has many tools, there are free programs that perform most of the same tasks, so power users may find it hard to justify paying for the software.

"USELESS, ANNOYING & DID I SAY USELESS?!?"

March 01, 2015  |  By RALFY313

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.373

Pros

Feeling a false sense of security for 1 day. If u like that, i suppose that could be a Pro. Can't find ANYTHING else to write good about this crap!

Cons

This is one of those 'Obvious BS' Trojan, Virus & Bug etc hunter/detector, it will show up sometimes with over a thousand issues in your system & try to 'fix' them. A lot of the files it calls 'infected' are actually files you want, need & DON'T want removed by this, (also not even malicious files at all)! But unless you actually go through & read all files that are so called 'infected', which most people don't bother doing, they just trust the program & then find out what has been deleted when it 's too late!
***In That Case, Best Thing To Do Is A System Restore!!!*** (it will fix it all)!
& Make Sure You Uninstall it if it's still on your system after the restore!

Summary

JUST STAY AWAY, for your own good...
I'm an AVG antivirus user, i think it's a great antivirus & a lot of other things it does. I really don't know why they've even got this bad quality crap program, i just don't understand.

"Pile of crap."

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.373

Pros

Does a lot of optimasations

Cons

The trial is for just 1 day and then it undoes the optimisations. The uninstaller doesn't work so then you're stuck with it nagging you to upgrade. Never use this rubbish. I used Glary Utilities in the end.

"Oh my Glob. What have I done?"

February 13, 2015  |  By randallhodge

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.373

Pros

None, other than you will have an annoying, insidious, and destructive "friend" living inside your computer.

Cons

This program took a long time to install. It took the better part of the night to "tune up" my computer, which is only three months old. It disabled the very fine paid version of the Malwarebytes program without my permission or knowledge. It was difficult to get it working again. AVG PC TuneUp actually and noticeably slowed down my computer. How? ***? After the "tuneup," my computer was clunky and took forever to open up programs. I could not believe it, as I have been a loyal AVG anti virus customer for years. What's more, and much worse? It is impossible to uninstall this awful program. It takes over. It even prevented me from doing a system restore to a point BEFORE I installed AVG PC TuneUp. They knew what they were doing with this damned nuisance. When a program can jack with system restore, "you in danger, girl." I will pay whatever it takes to get this monster off my computer. I don't want to be reminded of this experience.

Summary

AVG PC "TuneUp" should be called AVC PC EFFUp. You will feel bad for making the mistake of trying this ridiculous, useless, and damaging program.

To the person who designed this program. To all who were involved in conning people. YOU suck and all your stuff sucks. You dog sucks too.
