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.

"Conceivably good!"

June 04, 2015  |  By Charles Alde

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.518

Pros

-Well, there are detailed report

Cons

-Will cause your computer to run slow
-If you are working on Multiple tabs, don't use this
-If you are a multi-tasker, don't use this
-DO NOT INSTALL

Summary

Here's the thing, I have a good pc before installing this, and was really running good. I have a photoshop running and some multiple tabs in my Chrome. However, upon installing this, at first, it was really good, but after 2 days of installation, my computer suddenly can't run in multiple windows and programs. This is not for a guy that multi-tasks, this is for someone that gets pre-occupied most, and forgets what he was doing before that.

"Slowed Down PC Performance and Email"

June 03, 2015  |  By pryiastar

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.518

Pros

The program produces good reports but that is about it.

Cons

Do not install this program.
It caused my PC to respond very slowly to keystrokes while I composed emails.
It could not be uninstalled easily. I have used the uninstaller 3 times and all 3 times the program did not uninstall. At this point I am livid and want to get rid off this program off my PC.
In hindsight, I should have gone with a Registry Cleaner which is easy to uninstall.
