Editors' review

The word utility is far too utilitarian for TuneUp Utilities 2006. The program provides the basic Windows maintenance toolset, including temporary files, Registry cleaners, and start-up program controls, and these tools work more quickly and easily than most. However, it also sports great add-on tools you don't usually see in a utility program. The module-based program does more than clean, offering a variety of Internet and program-acceleration tweaks as well as Windows performance enhancers. The crash-preventing MemOptimizer, a file shredder, and a respectable uninstall utility round out this suite. You even can automate maintenance tasks with the scheduler or tweak Windows' appearance with the styler tool. The built-in RescueCenter can restore all changes completely or one by one. The only thing missing is a built-in hard drive defragger, but it seems petty to complain. The system-analyzing wizard alone, with its thorough reporting and upgrade suggestions, is worth the program price. And as an aside, we'd give this program design kudos for its stylish, logically arranged interface. TuneUp Utilities suits all users, from complete beginners who will appreciate the one-click optimization to more daring ones who will experiment with all the settings.

    "Frustrating customer support"

    June 22, 2014   |   By sagehillguy

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.296


    I am a simple home user so cannot actually comment on its usefulness. Having said that I hasten to add it seems to do what they say it will.


    Customer service for Windows8.1 sucks. I cannot get the disc defragmenter to move beyond the 10% mark. I have repeatedly emailed their customer service and they keep sending the same response on how to create a error file. I have explained there is no way to do this and then after my third email asking for another solution they have stopped responding. Be aware.

    Ad blurb looks interesting


    Downloaded software, however it did not function satisfactory on my old Windows7 PC. I decided to deinstall it. I then found that I could not de-install it. Even tried a special de-install tool. Eventually had to do a system restore on my pc to remove the software. I am sure the company purposely make it very hard for a user to remove it. I wasted several hours. potential customers beware that they may have a de-install problem.


    Not worth the hassle if you are going to use the free download to try before you buy.
