TuneUp Utilities 2009

CNET Editors' review

To call TuneUp Utilities 2009 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 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.

    "very good results"

    April 14, 2009  |   By paulralph6141961

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.1100

    Pros

    this program removed a ton of errors which resulted in a noticeable increase in speed

    Cons

    reset some of my settings after optimizing my system

    Summary

    I was happy with the results .However I am still looking for the Utility that truly does it all.(maybe I am dreaming ) when used in conjunction with another utility program TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.1100 did a impressive job of re establishing system speed and removing unwanted junk files .

    Updated on Jul 10, 2009

    Works well and the Free version is a trouble free and easy to use tool. I wwould like to try the upgraded version. It found several problems that were slowing down my PC's performance.

    "Great but not even beyond it"

    March 29, 2009  |   By stoncin3

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.1100

    Pros

    The trial lets you have fully featured program for a month! One-click optimization has got it all you'd need for a summarized optimization of your PC's. It checks PC automatically on startup. Good registry cleaner (4/5) and others (5/5)!

    Cons

    The registry cleaner lacks some of the programs' points also windows'. It should be done better for this kind of program even if it is at the level of some of the world's best cleaners... It is tune up utilities after all and...

    Summary

    All in all mostly all the functions the new TU offers are necessary and carefully arranged in this last version 2009. Defragmenters, cleaners, windows customizations, optimizations etc. Seems I want to have them all!

    "Excellent Product"

    March 27, 2009  |   By bentoncomputerdoctor

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.1100

    Pros

    I read about TuneUp Utilities 2009 in a professional periodical for service personnel. The article suggested this program for professionals. I tried others and the only software equal to this one was Uniblue Power Suite; both made by German writers.

    Cons

    I do not like the fact that after search and destroy you have to re-boot!

    Summary

    Most of what I had to say is found in the Pros section.

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.1100

    Pros

    "Works fine but costs too much."

    March 15, 2009  |   By KyleWP993

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.1100

    Pros

    All-in-One one click optimizing is nice. The WYSIWYG interface is strait forward and user friendly.

    Cons

    It doesnt clean as deep as the CCleaner, Auslogics, or Glary freeware. I also believe in doing redundant "overswipes" with alternating products. You never know what one companys agenda could be. Its best to use 2 products, it keeps them honest.

    Summary

    Great for a quick spit and polish scrub, but don't expect it to catch everything. Be prepared to pay the somewhat high price for it if you want to keep it.

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.1100

    Pros

    Fixed many vista problems.

    Cons

    Maybe the cost will scare me anyway.
