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.

"Impossible to uninstall!!! this is MALWARE!"

December 12, 2014  |  By gimpydwarf

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.238

Pros

does what it says, but i did not notice any increase of performance.

Cons

Cannot uninstall. constant pop up browser pages and reminders of how wonderful this crap is, even after you uninstall the program. For an antivirus company, this is inexcusable!

Summary

more crap you don't need.

"1 word - MALICIOUS!"

December 05, 2014  |  By RALFY313

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.238

Pros

None that i see at all.

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

I really don't understand why both AVG & C-NET both support this program?!?
JUST DO YOURSELF A FAVOR & DON'T BOTHER WITH IT AT ALL!
It does the exact opposite of what it says!
