Editors' Review

+

To call TuneUp Utilities 2007 useful would drastically understate the situation. The app provides users with a powerful, well-designed utility that accesses the entire Windows maintenance tool set and more in a fast, organized, and easy-to-use series of connected modules.

Temp file management, registry cleaners and start-up program controls are the bread-and-butter of these utilities, and these basics work in TuneUp more quickly and easily than most. However, the app also sports great add-on tools you don't usually see in a utility program. It offers a variety of Internet and program-acceleration tweaks as well as Windows performance enhancers. The crash-preventing MemOptimizer, a file shredder, deleted file recovery, and a respectable uninstall utility round out the 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, with its thorough reporting and upgrade suggestions, is worth the program price alone. Between the guts of steel and the stylish, logically arranged interface, TuneUp Utilities suits all users--from complete beginners who will appreciate the one-click optimization to more daring users who will experiment with all the settings.

"Not really Vista compatible even though they claim it"

January 26, 2009  |  By Philster_23

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2008 7.0.8007

Pros

Some nice features. Initially it all looked good. Optimizer tweaked my Vista into internet purgatory.

Cons

Don't like that you are forced to run it in the background unless you physically turn it off. Optimizer took away internet connectivity in Vista. Rescue feature brought it back after a day of frustration.

Summary

After a day of buying ethernet cards and talking to Cox Cable, still no internet. Cox said it was my brand new Quad core. Traced my steps back and last thing I tried was to use the rescue feature, "bingo". Anybody want to buy a good used ethernet card??

"One of my must have pieces of software."

December 16, 2008  |  By JemGirl

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2008 7.0.8007

Pros

Fixes just about everything.

Cons

can't think of one.

Summary

I have been using this for years, and each year they find a way to improve on it. It's great for me for when I want to get in there and fix things by hand, and its had the great one click maintenance thing that will help some who don't know what to do keep their system mostly error free.

It even helped me ID a virus. I love this thing. I'm actually running version 2009, so I know how come I was sent the link to 2008 to review. But either one is great. :)

I could make my old system (P3 550mhz, 256mb, xp + tune up) run as fast as better systems (P4 2ghz, 256mb, xp). it was true and none of my friends could believe there own eye when i proved it by giving few tasks like copying data, converting video clips (vcd to avi) (both the systems(6 months after freshly installing windows xp on both (configration as given above)) were provided with same software and datas to do the test).
