"Greater than ever!!!"

January 13, 2014  |  By bod62uk

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.145

Pros

easy to use, good optimization on newer machines.

Cons

Yes, good on newer machines with more than four gigs of ram.

Pretty rubbish on older machines and could even slow you down.

I went back to the 2012 version.

Summary

deffinately worth the money, great software, a free version would be cool.

"Fixed my PC crashes and other problems. Brilliant!"

December 31, 2013  |  By jayvee44

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.145

Pros

I downloaded the trial version to see if it might just solve the constant crashing problem on my Vista pc. This had been happening for a few weeks and nothing I tried helped. Finally someone suggested I tried TuneUp Utilities. I didn't have much hope, but the fact that I could download and try it for free prompted me to at least give it a go. Well,I was amazed at the huge amount of problems the software found, and I decided to let it fix everything listed. The whole task took about 40 minutes (though choosing to defrag a little later took many hours!). Anyway, since then, the computer, is definitely running better and has not crashed once in that time. So I'm hoping TU has found and cured the problem once and for all. My trial runs out in two days and meanwhile TU has been running in the background and maintaining the system. I will be getting a new PC very soon, so won't be buying TU just yet, but will DEFINITELY be purchasing it for the new machine. Absolutely recommended.

Cons

None that I can think of in the short time I've been using TU

Cons

-Took long time to boot.
-Extremely laggy.

Summary

I mainly downloaded and installed this for the theme installer, but I ended up doing a lot more. This software is the best PC optimization software I have ever used. There were so many problems that it found, and it fixed them for free! Very recommended software!

"The best and brightest for now"

September 25, 2013  |  By DDRAMbo64738

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.145

Pros

TuneUp is the only utility suite that takes you step-by-step through the setup so that you both understand how it works and also learn, if you don't already know, more aspects of how your PC operates. I imagine many people can't appreciate this wizard-like process and don't get the most out of it, but when TuneUp is intelligently set up, it keeps your PC running uber smoothly.
I compared the TuneUp 1-Click Maintenance with that of Glary Utilities, and TuneUp found 300 more fixes to the registry and 5x as many shortcut issues. It has a pleasing UI with some welcome animation. The separation of functions into windowed groups is well thought out. The ability to customize the Windows interface is icing on the cake.

Cons

I wish all of these apps wouldn't pop up messages related to upgrading when you've made every attempt to turn it off.

Summary

I have my doubts that TuneUp can maintain it's perspective on performance rather than profit since it's been acquired by AVG Technologies, the company that puts out the free AVG antivirus program. If they try to combine AVG antivirus with this utility suite as they did with Spyware Doctor (that's right, you don't hear so much about that product any more, do you), the future doesn't bode well because it will become a niche product.

"Pretty good"

September 06, 2013  |  By kanbrain

 |  Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.145

Pros

Overall, my 4-yr-old computer was running so poorly that I was thinking of replacing it. On the advice of a colleague I tried TU. Now the computer's performance is improved. Sometimes it does run way too slowly for comfort, will freeze up for a bit. Other times it runs very efficiently. In general, I have to reboot notably fewer times than I used to. I think TU's periodic clean-up and repair of the registry makes a significant difference.

Cons

TU's prioritizing of programs sometimes has gotten obtrusive. I use Copernic for desktop search. That program needs to run continually to index new content. TU sometimes tries to deactivate it. But TU tells me that and I can override it.

Summary

I haven't had any of the problems with the 2012, 2013 versions that some have complained about here. I haven't needed any support from the vendor, so I can't evaluate that.

I initially ran each of TU's operations manually so I could see what it was doing. Once I was satisfied that it wasn't doing anything harmful, I just let it run automatically.

TU is not a panacea, but for a reasonable price I think it is reasonably helpful.
