Editors' Review

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.

"Don't Get This"

April 18, 2015  |  By Dennis Donovan

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.403

Pros

Customer service is horrible...unless you like working with someone in India who doesn't care about service. I have had 2013 and downloaded the trial version of the 2015....well...the 2015 version deleted my 2013 version and then it shut down....not an honest product

Cons

Bad service.

"Terrible program"

April 11, 2015

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.403

Pros

None what so ever.

Cons

1.After the one day trail it constantly pops up a ad for them wanting to sell you there product.

2. Very hard to remove
A.Tried closing the process tree, Then i tried to delete it by my self the program then reopened the process tree for it and i couldn't delete it since it was open
B.Tried to remove with control panel uninstaller,The program asked me if i was sure if i wanted to delete it i clicked "YES" and it just did nothing after that.

3. After i did the full computer scan 2 things went missing/disabled that i cant seem to get working : Sleep mode (its been disabled,Doesn't even work when i shut the laptop screen) And When i right click the desktop "Appearance and Personalization" is missing and its not showing up in the control panel
So far this is what I've found missing.

Summary

I do NOT recommend this.

"RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN"

March 21, 2015  |  By blindowl56

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.403

Pros

None. None at all. Does not even deserve the one star rating.

Cons

Whatever you do, DO NOT INSTALL! I just spent several days undoing the damage this software has done. Registry clean up removed a key file, resulting in no Beats Audio, no Control Panel, no restore points, not able to run windows updates, MS no longer working, DISABLED ITS OWN FIREWALL, I have never seen anything like this. I will not be buying or renewing ANY AVG products ever again.

Summary

I NO LONGER HAVE CONFIDENCE IN ANY AVG PRODUCTS.

"Terrible software with bad consequences"

March 15, 2015  |  By smartkitten

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.403

Pros

Easy to install

Cons

Impossible to uninstall
If you follow it's recommendations and "fix" the registry, it will do the following:
-Corrupts MS Office and you end up with no MS programs functioning
-Corrupts IE
Even after you forcefully uninstall it, nothing goes back to normal. Restore points disappear.

My work laptop had to be completely wiped and everything had to be re-installed on it. Our IT dept was NOT happy.

Summary

DO NOT INSTALL.
I've this software 2014 version and it's amazing. This one is like a bad virus.

"Horrid, Horrid, Horrid!"

March 04, 2015  |  By MurphyStrikesAgain

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.403

Pros

None, that's all there are in the way of pros. Absolutely none! The old versions used to be great. The 2015 version is a nightmare!

Cons

Read the post dated March 1, 2015 by RALFY313 and you've got my story. I've used the AVG PC Tune Up for years and never ever had a nightmare experience like this. I spent three hours working on my computer, waiting on the AVG Chat Tech Support(useless), and on hold on the phone for the AVG Tech Support people before I was finally able to get this wretched program off my computer using Safe Mode to get to System Recovery. As I said to my husband, this was like watching a house of cards implode! Unbelievable that something that used to be so great has become every computer users worst nightmare: staring a trip to the computer repair shop in the face...

Summary

Do a fast 180 and RUN from AVG PC TuneUp 2015.
