"A Powerful & Thorough Windows Tuner!"
I really like this product. As with ALL registry cleaners, please use them only after you've taken 2 Precautions:: You've backed up your Registry & you regularly do Full System Backups; (Yes, I know you already do that ... just making sure :) ). This product is very competitive & Very Similar to the Also-Excellent System Mechanic by Iolo. Both products have About the same tool-set. One of the interesting distinctions offered by Tune-Up is the means to _Automatically_ Disable selected High-Load Background Services when they're not being used . . . While you could manually do that by opening Windows Services, it's really convenient to have this done automatically.
Frustratingly, the F1 Help Function FAILS !! Arrrgh!! Fortunately, you can grab a (Less-Convenient) PDF Manual from the Tune-Up Website. I emailed Tune-Up Support about this Failure & they advised that I do a Complete Uninstall & Reinstall of their product. I did that (even though it meant redoing all of the many product settings). And, Once Again, the Help File ... FAILED !!
There are 3 All-in-One Toolkits on the market that I have tested to be Excellent -- CCleaner (Free!), Tune-Up Utilities, & Iolo System Mechanic . . . CCleaner is Super-Safe -- & the Latter 2 are More Thorough & Offer a Vast Array of Tools. A strength of "Tune-Up" is that it really truly assists you to discover which programs are causing the greatest Load on your computer. I really wish they would fix the problem with their HELP FILE -- That was Very Frustrating!
