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.

"Good and bad software"

April 30, 2009  |  By narnia

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.2000

Pros

Some utilities is good if you don't use IE8

Cons

This softwaremaker has no technical support, your mail will never been answered.

Summary

The company tell the buyers how happy they are to support you. But there is no support, and the price is too high for what this software could do.
Do yourself a favour, save your money and use Cclean instead, it's free!

"NO AFTER SALES SUPPORT WHATSOEVER!!"

April 30, 2009  |  By exzim

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.2000

Pros

Easy to use and several handy gizmos

Cons

Support totally non-existent. The only time you will hear from them is when your license is due for renewal. Fails to clear certain registry errors and does not recognise presence of certain 'name-brand' AV products & gives false warnings.

Summary

Lots of glitz & glamor with this product but when the tyre hits the road, it does not deliver. It failed to repair registry errors that were tackled by two other cheaper products. Think twice before you buy this and certainly DO NOT consider if there is the slightest chance you have the strange idea that clients who pay good money for software should ever require after sales support.

"Absolutely NO TECHNICAL SUPPORT"

April 27, 2009  |  By cubivallejo

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.2000

Pros

Seems to diagnose problems/issues with PC to make it more efficient

Cons

Program does not offer a way to resolve "critical" issues. FAQs do not address problems, and the manual does not offer solutions. Calling tech support at 312-962-9996 is an absolute waste of time.

Summary

Worthless if I cannot get tech support to help me fix the "critical" issues it found.

"2009 does not work with Win 2k as promised"

April 19, 2009  |  By benson500

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.2000

Pros

This is great software, if you have XP or (gasp) Vista. Otherwise, I would have given this software five stars

Cons

2008 works with Windows 2000, a supported Microsoft Product. If you "upgrade" it in a 2000 system to 2009, you can no longer use it

Summary

I really like this program, and if you're someone who has XP, or another supported operating system, go for it absolutely. For us cheapskates that don't want to spend the dough on a new operating system, walk on by. CNET should take off the description that this software works with 2000 though.

"I don't normally write reviews but.."

April 18, 2009  |  By vvhiz

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.2000

Pros

Everything works as advertised.
Full Featured.

Cons

I can't think of any.

Summary

After downloading TuneUp Utilities 2009, I was so impressed that I went to their European web site and purchased the software. I really appreciated the fact that their trial software is fully operational and NOT crippleware like others may distribute.

I've also tried various registry cleaners here on cnet's download.com and they've all cleaned some areas of the registry but never a thorough job. Luckily I never experienced any registry corruptions from test driving the dozen cleaners on here.

This is a must have for anyone from a basic pc user to a full out technician.

"The best maintenance tool I've ever seen, but..."

April 18, 2009  |  By FleetCommand

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.2000

Pros

TuneUp Utilities 2009 is certainly an excellent suite of tools. It supports a great number of scenarios and that competently.

Cons

Nevertheless, TuneUp Utilities 2009 suffers the lack of a competent technical support team and a mean for users to report bugs. A number of this program's bugs that I've found and reported very early on are still not resolved despite several updates.

Summary

Definitely buy and install TuneUp Utilities 2009. However...

Be aware that it does not support Unicode, world standard for saving data in language-independent forms. This means that files and registry entries containing non-english characters are not properly handled and may be corrupted. Therefore, under no circumstances, run (let alone use) TuneUp Disk Doctor, TuneUp Defrag, Registry Defrag and most significant of all, TuneUp Registry Editor! In addition, Registry Editor tool still suffers several critical bugs which can severely -- I repeat, and I mean it: severely -- damage your system.

As of now, all other tools are safe to use.

"used trial vers. thru its time limit and more!"

April 09, 2009  |  By downAload

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.2000

Pros

Straightforward and easy to read and operate.User has choices after initial scan runs as soon as main window is opened.Really liked options , some of which are not available on other CNET-Offered multi-function programs.

Cons

Good as it seems to be I still can't bring myself to buy "FULL" version.......and I'm not a cheap skate either.

Summary

Thought I found the App. of my PC's dreams in "Advanced System Care"(iobit) Then this little gem comes along. Now I'm sooooo.....confused!!

"The best software of it's type...BY FAR!!!"

April 09, 2009  |  By j3101s

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.2000

Pros

Simple, easy to use and 100% effective. I have tried others in the past and always had massive problems afterward. This program is flawless. It completely cleaned my system up and optimized it perfectly. No, I don't work for the company. This works!!

Cons

I guess the only con is the price. However, it is the best $50.00 I have spent in a long time.

Summary

Buy this, you will not regret it. The additional boot screens, log in screens etc. are pretty cool. The back up feature is very important to me. I can't say enough good things about it!!
