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.

    "KEEP CLEAR - NO SUPPORT - HAD TO REPLACE HARD DRIVE"

    October 08, 2014   |   By Aabaana

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.340

    Pros

    The 'Pros' is: there are other software solutions out there - don't get within a barge-pole length of Tune-Up if you have any sense!

    Cons

    I had this installed on two laptops and having checked a hard drive with which I had no problems with, my BIOS could no longer detect my hard drive. I spent TEN WEEKS and over £200 in phone calls to the USA trying - pleading - for help and was continually stone-walled! DO NOT TAKE A CHANCE, it;s not worth having to replace your hard drive or spend hundreds of pounds getting no help!

    Summary

    I HOPE TUNE-UP CRASHES AS MY HARD DRIVE DID OH AND WITHOUT BEING SLANDEROUS - AS IT'S THE TRUTH, THEY LIE!

    "Disk error scan makes your computer unusable"

    August 01, 2014   |   By jkirk1626

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.340

    Pros

    Its utilities are mostly functional and effective.

    Cons

    A scan for had drive errors remained stuck at 10% for 10 hours. The computer was unusable during this time. Powering off and restarting had no result without a recovery CD. TuneUp Utilities provides no warning of making your computer useless for 10 hours; it provides no warning that you will be unable to terminate the scan.

    This is inexcusable and borders on the tort of conversion.

    Summary

    Enjoy TuneUp Utilities leaving your computer stuck at 10% for >10 hours with the message: "scanning and repairing drive C:"

    Search for "TuneUp Utilities" and you'll find results replete with customers reporting TuneUp Utilities' hard drive error scans leaving customers' computers stuck at some percentage and never recovering. AVG's response is that it's a Windows issue not a TuneUp Utilities issue. Really? Way to give an enormous FU to your customers. Worse, incompetent illiterate techs are telling people to do procedures on PCs while those PCs are stuck on AVG's software.

    However good and effective TuneUp Utilities' other functions, this oversight and dismissiveness of users should be a deal breaker.
