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.

"Deja vu?"

January 16, 2007  |  By The Fat Controller

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2006 5.0.2331

Pros

TuneUp seems just like Norton Systemworks! ...Only it's quicker and more user-friendly with one-click scans - that sort of thing. The uninstall manager is also very useful for getting rid of stuff that doesn't appear on the standard add/remove programs list.

Cons

It's not free forever :[

"Probably the most accurate and comprehensive tools for both pros and novices. "

January 04, 2007  |  By who-me

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2006 5.0.2331

Pros

I have been in the industry for many years and use several tools as well as manual methods to clean up/tweak systems. I have found this to be a very useful tool on every system I have worked on without causing havoc as so many other tools have done when I have entrusted them at one time or another.

Cons

It could be a little confusing for people that do not understand exactly how to use and proceed with all of the available tools.

"Good try"

December 30, 2006  |  By TJR67

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2006 5.0.2331

Pros

Nice registry manipulation and clening.

Cons

Does it really optimize? I got far too high RWIN value when optimizing internet connection. Tips section says that P III is too slow for Win 2000 but I still should change to XP. 32-bit colours is bad for performance but if I change the value it tells to change back to original. Is there any sense in these "tips"?

Pros

This is a must have utility. Actually, I'm no longer using version 2006, but am on the NEW 2007 version, and am really impressed. This, along with WinXP Manager v5.0.5 give me all the tools needed to keep my OS running in tip-top shape.
