Editors' Review

AVG TuneUp is a free Windows utility designed to clean up junk files on your PC and possibly increase system performance.

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.
