    "Over-bearing software with average results at best"

    November 17, 2012  |   By windbite

    Pros

    The user-interface is pretty straight forward and there are some nice 'fixes' with the program.

    Cons

    When installed, this program will do everything it can to root into your system and it's a nightmare trying to disable or turn it off! Tuneup sometimes consumes almost double the computer resources of my Norton antivirus! Tuneup also has THE ABSOLUTE WORST customer service mentality! For instance, if you purchase Tuneup Utilities at almost all major retailers right now, it will be the 2012 version, which doesn't have a year on the box. I recently purchased the 2012 boxed software and learning after installing it that 2013 was out and had more features. When I emailed Tuneup because their phone support is nonexistent they responded, "Please note that we are not responsible for retailers about what version they are selling."

    Summary

    There are better and more stable utility management programs out there that are at or below the high cost of Tuneup that actually have customer service! Be aware that Tuneup wants to rip you off on their site charging $50.00 for a download, when most of the major retailers are selling you a boxed version for half the price!
