"This is a malicious program"

October 04, 2012  |  By Bryan_G

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2012 12.0.2160.13

Pros

This program can damage your computer by removing or changing registry setting. NEVER download any program that works on your registry.

Cons

This program cannot be uninstalled.

Summary

C-net should be sued for allowing this app to be downloaded from their site.

March 21, 2012  |  By maybejet

Began great as an all-in-one utility.

OK at the start of the trial, but I decided not to purchase full version due to finances and CANNOT DELETE THE SOFTWARE!!!

Program works wonders, and its very user friendly.

"Do not trust this software!"

January 27, 2012  |  By Bladactania

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2012 12.0.2160.13

Pros

Was very active in 'optimizing' my system. Has 3 'modes' of use: Economy (maximizes battery life), Standard, and Turbo (deactivates everything that not vital to maximize the resources). I tried all 3 settings. Using some not so scientific tests, I managed about 20-30 minutes longer on the battery alone in Economy mode doing only basic web browsing etc. And going into Turbo made freed up about 750MB-1GB of RAM which I used when playing a memory intensive game (gave me slightly higher frame rate). Tons of options.

Cons

Most of the good things about this software are common amongst similar software suites. The 3 modes and their options/abilities come as a basic feature in Windows Vista/7. And I can easily kill superfluous processes to free up resources when gaming.

the biggest thing for me was when the trial period was up I had considered buying, but decided to wait until next payday. When the repetitive reminders to buy the software got on my nerves I decided to uninstall until I bought. But it doesn't readily uninstall. I went into Control Panel/Remove Program, Select TuneUp Utilities. I get a window promoting all the wonders of the software. The window asks "Are you sure you want to uninstall TuneUp Utilities now?" with a Yes and a No box. I click the Yes box and... nothing. The Yes box doesn't work. I'm still working on getting rid of it!

Summary

If a software company has to resort to this kind of BS then they're not worthy of my money or yours. Stay clear of this crap.

"Not sure of its honesty"

January 23, 2012  |  By STONEDG40

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2012 12.0.2160.13

Pros

One stop utility. Took quite a while to install but once loaded apparently worked OK

Cons

Having used another reliable software facility for some months I was amazed (and suspicious) when, immediately after running Auslogics BoostSpeed, TuneUp found 571 junk files

Summary

Because I am sceptical of its "honesty" I will not purhase it at the end of the trial period.

Updated on Jan 24, 2012

Was a bit skeptical about uninstalling (in view of another review) but found it quite straightforward except for the lengthy survey that could not be completed anonymously.
