    "Not Compatible with Win8"

    April 16, 2013  |   By DVM25

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 13.0.3020.7

    Pros

    None I can find.

    Cons

    Slowed down system performance dramatically, then refused to uninstall. I was forced to use system restore to return my system to normal, and I'm still experiencing problems.

    Summary

    Forget tuneup, this is actually worse than any malware I've come across. Terrible. Just terrible.

    "Don't do it!"

    April 2, 2013  |  

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 13.0.3020.7

    Pros

    Registry cleaner

    Cons

    The system optimization actually slows your computer down. I had to turn optimization off before I figured out TuneUP was the culprit.

    Summary

    Just don't bother wasting your money. I did and now I wish I hadn't.

    "Poor Quality"

    March 23, 2013  |   By scmp

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 13.0.3020.7

    Pros

    It has been a good program, currently with the constant reminders update makes the program unreliable.

    Cons

    It has been a good program, currently with the constant reminders update makes the program unreliable.

    Summary

    "Do not start installing!"

    March 10, 2013  |   By cod386

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 13.0.3020.7

    Pros

    It may have some pros I'm not aware of

    Cons

    Very difficult to stop the installation process

    Summary

    I have windows 7 and this product tried to install automatically after installing winamp. I did not granted it administrative privileges but despide that, it was very difficult to stop it. I end up by restoring my system settings to a previous date. I will never try a program which foces me to install it.

    "A B*tch To Uninstall"

    March 5, 2013  |   By PC_Hamster

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 13.0.3020.7

    Pros

    Not one thing

    Cons

    Even after uninstall, leftover files (INCLUDING ATHE Explorer Context menu) CANNOT BE REMOVED on Windows 8

    Summary

    I **DO NOT** recommend using this on a Windows 8 machine DESPITE the developer's claims that it's safe to do so. KEEP IN MIND - Many parts of Windows 8 are STILL in the EARLY stages of development.

    BOTTOM LINE - I put this one in the WAIT UNTIL THE WINDOWS 8 APP IS RELEASED IN THE WINDOWS APP STORE category

    "VERY USEFUL, IF YOU KNOW HOW TO CONFIGURE IT PROPERLY.."

    January 13, 2013  |   By zeroday1

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 13.0.2020.14

    Pros

    I like the array of options that comes with Tune-Up Utilities 2013. The interface is user-friendly (though could still use a little work) and the 1-Click Maintenance feature offers real streamlined cleaning capabilities.

    Cons

    Some of the functions and configurations (even within the "usage-profile" settings could use better mouse-over descriptions to aid the user to make the right choice when deciding whether or not to let the program make the adjustments based on your profile.

    It could also use more definitive cleaning options that are also specific in their cleaning descriptions (i.e., when you want to clean out the junk from a recent browser session but don't want to delete your browser's book-mark favicon cache---the currents options are not very clear and most of the time I end up having to reload all my bookmarks because I don't know which option to un-check).

    Maybe Tune-up Utilities should recreate the cache cleaners so that they don't touch the favicon cache---seems like that would be a reasonable tweak to apply to this seemingly hefty application.

    Summary

    Although it may seem a bit cumbersome to the average end-user and can use a tremendous amount of system-resources, if you know how to configure the settings correctly, it just may be a useful investment for keeping your computer in decent-running shape.

    For those who may have experienced issues with the "Automatic Maintenance" & "Optimizer" functions---they can be disabled from within the settings menu---you just have to know where to look.

    Personally, I like to make use of this application on demand rather than to have the maintenance set to automatic but you can create a user profile and still disable the automatic optimizations whilst still getting some good on-demand functionality out of it. And at the same time you'll reduce the amount of system resources this application normally would need if you just simply had everything set to run automatically.

    (Just some food for thought for those whom may feel less inclined to tweak an application such as this because of their ineptitude with regard to software in general.)

    Overall, I think this application is a great tool for Windows users and boasts an incredible amount of configurations, however the in-experienced should proceed with caution.

    Remember an application can be your best friend or your worst enemy. The choice is up to you.

    As a general rule, if you don't know what you are doing---then prudence holds that you shouldn't follow through, otherwise you'll be certain to run into issues great & small...

    "Communications conflicts"

    January 8, 2013  |   By membersince2003

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 13.0.2020.14

    Pros

    Improves performance to some extent
    cleans junk from internet browsers

    Cons

    not specific enough about what it is disabling
    causes wireless connection conflict
    needs to identify other apps that it might conflict with
    disables apps you know work but that it replaces
    does not offer options to keep other apps running
    requires internet access

    Summary

    I would first be cautious about using this application because it might replace a good application just because it wants to. It does not fix problems that it causes like wireless connection disruption.
    Needs to cover specific areas of computer applications, firewalls, anti-virus, anti-malware, internet connection types, exactly what it is cleaning, disabling or stopping a service. If it must have internet access then it should begin there with possible fixes or changes to network or internet connections.
