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.

"Extremely bad"

October 07, 2015

2015-10-07 06:37:32

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.518

Pros

No pros, they basically comes with the AVG antivirus to **** your system up & later try to recommend tune up.
Bad marketing for something no one wants at all.

Cons

1. Invasive to your PC system & additional drives.
2. Disrupts any work esp those which is connected via USB guaranteed within 1 week of the AVG Antivirus installation to 'promote' AVG PC Tune Up.
3. RECORDS AND INTERCEPTS CREDIT CARDS DETAILS & U ARE UNABLE TO DELETE OR AMEND IN ANYWAY!

"Good luck with tech support."

2015-09-29 07:39:51  |  By beam85

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.518

Pros

Worked great for a wile...

Cons

I put this on my computer back in 2010, worked great until I put Windows 10 on my computer. It wasn't windows that messed things up for me it was the fact that I had to do a clean install of windows and after when I had to reinstall everything. This company had NO record of me in there system and would not give me the reinstall. I even found the original receipt and my PayPal receipt from the online purchase made in 2010.

Summary

Your tech support is in India...good luck with that.

"Overpriced & Intrusive"

September 18, 2015  |  By mjhorton

2015-09-18 14:20:51  |  By mjhorton

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.518

Pros

It's a full toolbox of options that covers pretty much everything that one needs.

Cons

Slows down the PC considerably when installed. It constantly offers pop ups, and suggest tweaks to make the system faster that are minmal help...or just flat out is a useless change. Also if you uninstall it, you need to download their uninstaller. Don't use Windows, becaus it will not remove it entirely. The fact I need a special uninstaller to remove it is also ridiculous.

Summary

There are better programs that do what this does and stays out of your face, such as Iobit's Advanced System Care.

"The exact same errors come back the next day - CRAP"

September 11, 2015  |  By mrjrfm

2015-09-11 21:26:02  |  By mrjrfm

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.518

Pros

Speeds up computer for a couple of hours

Cons

Imagine paying for a tune up on your car, and 1 day later, it's completely out of tune again... Also, there are 1000 complaints about Windows Word & Excel not opening consistently or properly once installed,... and AVG's solution is to dump you into a blog group of others having the same experience... none have figured out a solution. Come on.. AVG... disappointing

Summary

I was reluctant to buy this,... and my should have listened to my conscience. Really glad I didn't buy the 2 year package...

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.518

Pros

queue crickets

Cons

cannot remove daily pop ups. There is no way to remove without serious software support and/or knowledge.

Summary

This is not the same AVG of years past. They've been taken over by the very hackers they swore to protect us against!

"Too much for a software that screw up my laptop!"

July 25, 2015

2015-07-25 16:27:31

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.518

Pros

For people that aren't PC or MAC OS Pros never get this software even if it's free.

Cons

When I start using the software it took about 2-4 minute load up before I can go on internet. The reason why is because the software will make the web site stop then have to wait for the page to reload before anything can happen and it's running on a 5-10 minutes to load anything. And that trying to get a refund from they that I never get after trying three times.

Summary

When you add every bad thing what do you got?

"Wish I had done a bit of research before downloading."

July 13, 2015  |  By RazamanSR

2015-07-13 09:16:15  |  By RazamanSR

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.518

Pros

Absolutely none.

Cons

I'm afraid I may have to reformat my HD and jump through all the hoops that entails.

Summary

I have lost faith in this company. I will never use any of their products again. I do not trust them or their products. If I had seen a dramatic change in my computer, I probably would have purchased the Tune Up program, but it seemed as sluggish as before the install and once the trial was over, it ran so bad, I wondered if they had programmed the app to do just that after the trial period passed. That is why I decided to investigate and read some reviews. Now that I have, have moved all files into my external and onto Cloud. This company should be investigated.

"Going Downhill"

July 08, 2015  |  By HeadMoose

2015-07-08 13:50:25  |  By HeadMoose

 |  Version: AVG PC TuneUp 2015 15.0.1001.518

Pros

Offers some functionality, although less than it used to before AVG bought it.

Cons

Not everything works.
The "Clean Up Your iPhone" worked until iOS got to V8.3, at which point this software could no longer do anything with iPhone.
The Disk Defrag works very slowly and very poorly.
The Registry cleaner never seems to find anything.
It seems like AVG is just riding this cash cow product and doing nothing to refresh it.

Summary

I am looking for a replacement as I write this. Very disappointing as I have used this software for several years, and I hate to see a good thing going away.
