Used to be a good program. You buy it once and that is it.
Now since AVG" took care of Tuneup", you pay annually to USE a software that you used to buy once for life. They don't give support for older versions and just want you to pay 60 or more annually and try to push their own anti-virus program. They lost a costumer and my recommendation to any to of my friends. AVG is a mercenary company. I quit using any program that has their name on it. Lost the trust.
It's been hobbled to force good customers like myself to buy the newest version. They want to train us to the yearly renewal cycle. I've bought a dozen copies of this software over the years and really liked it. The company was sold to AVG who's in it for the cash, however, and I can no longer recommend it.
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!
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!
I HOPE TUNE-UP CRASHES AS MY HARD DRIVE DID OH AND WITHOUT BEING SLANDEROUS - AS IT'S THE TRUTH, THEY LIE!
Its utilities are mostly functional and effective.
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.
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.
