    "Disk error scan makes your computer unusable"

    August 01, 2014   |   By jkirk1626

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.340

    Pros

    Its utilities are mostly functional and effective.

    Cons

    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.

    Summary

    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.

    "AVG owns Tune-Up now."

    July 25, 2014   |   By srk9

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.275

    Pros

    I have used this program, with yearly updates, for many years. It used to be FANTASTIC.

    Cons

    AVG has "F" rating with Better Business Bureau. That is relevant because AVG now owns Tune-Up. Shortly after AVG bought the company, Tune-Up changed. INDEED, it seems that the company pushes updates that actually break one's purchased software, with the only solution being to buy the newest version. I'm serious.

    Indeed, I just found that not only did "updates" break TU 2013, but TU 2012 also was broken when the very newest updates were applied.

    This is, I think, criminal activity.

    Summary

    Avoid this product at all costs. Past performance means absolutely nothing. Take it from a long-time user.

    If you have this program installed, DO NOT ALLOW ANY UPDATES.

    (P.S.: I have had precisely the kind of problems with tech support as others here.)

    "Frustrating customer support"

    June 22, 2014   |   By sagehillguy

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.296

    Pros

    I am a simple home user so cannot actually comment on its usefulness. Having said that I hasten to add it seems to do what they say it will.

    Cons

    Customer service for Windows8.1 sucks. I cannot get the disc defragmenter to move beyond the 10% mark. I have repeatedly emailed their customer service and they keep sending the same response on how to create a error file. I have explained there is no way to do this and then after my third email asking for another solution they have stopped responding. Be aware.

    "Troublesome"

    June 13, 2014   |   By 783jam

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.296

    Pros

    Ad blurb looks interesting

    Cons

    Downloaded software, however it did not function satisfactory on my old Windows7 PC. I decided to deinstall it. I then found that I could not de-install it. Even tried a special de-install tool. Eventually had to do a system restore on my pc to remove the software. I am sure the company purposely make it very hard for a user to remove it. I wasted several hours. potential customers beware that they may have a de-install problem.

    Summary

    Not worth the hassle if you are going to use the free download to try before you buy.

    "Avoid at all costs!!!"

    April 09, 2014   |   By gingjok

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.275

    Pros

    None whatsoever!!!!!!

    Cons

    Constant freezing!! Not worth the money!!! Customer care is non existent!!!!

    Summary

    This piece of crapware is not worth a single dollar!! It totally slows down boot up time. It absolutely swamps all over programmes on your computer! When you try to delay it on start up or even stop it running on start up, it automatically overrides the other software settings!! Upon start up it constantly freezes and takes about a minute before you can actually use it!! NEVER just run their cleaning programmes without checking!! What it says is unnecessary is actually something which is essential to the windows operation! On the last 2 software updates, the computer refused to reboot! Took countless attempts wasting a total of 15 minutes!!! It also affects the stability of other software on your computer as well! They also refuse to start up immediately!! Once I removed TuneUp Utilities 2014, everything went back to normal and the computer became very response again!! And to make matters worse, after getting in touch with customer care on 3 occasions!!! 10 days later they haven't replied in person!! Just those pathetic automatic replies!! As I write this review they still haven't been in touch.
    I would never recommend this software to anybody and would avoid it at all costs!!! Try Wise Care 365 or Advanced Systemcare 7 Pro. Both of which you get fairly quick helpful replies from customer care. And they are not over intrusive and cause no serious damage to your computer.

    "Piece of ...."

    April 07, 2014   |   By SorinAcela

    Version: TuneUp Utilities 2014 14.0.1000.275

    Pros

    Nothing to mention.

    Cons

    What a piece of crap! Even if I selected in the OPTIONS for this piece of crap only to defragment the disk, it performed ALL the tasks anyway! I'm praying to God it hasn't messed up with registry and other computer settings. What a piece of crap.

    Summary

    Works uncontrollably.
