Editors' Review

+
Although it might be a bit too technical for average folks, this tiny, free utility nonetheless offers a helpful set of optimization tools for more advanced users of Windows XP. TuneXP's interface is certainly no beauty, but since all of its tools are accessible via menu items, it's simple enough to operate. The Memory and File System section lets you perform tweaks such as accelerating DLL unloading and defraging boot files. The other system tools are organized into categories such as Internet, Hardware, and Services. While many of the program's features will go over the heads of those who aren't technically inclined, we're glad the help files fully explain what each part of the program does. Best of all, TuneXP is totally free, making it a fine pick for those who suspect their OS could be in better shape than it currently is.

"Clever little tool that does its job!"

February 26, 2013  |  By mootrix

 |  Version: TuneXP 1.5

Pros

Can actually speed you computer (to a point)
Built-in help file for those new to tweaking.
Simple no frills interface.
Tiny (~1MB)

Cons

No longer being developed.

Nothing else other than its a bit old and has much fewer features than most other 'system cleaners' But some of its features actually do make a noticeable difference to performance.

Summary

All in all this is a great little application to have for XP systems and while it does lack features of other 'system optimizers' like cleaning temporary files its still a good program to have around.

Also there is one feature that allows you to speed up boot times but that you will have to find out on your own. ;)

"Improved boot time"

November 26, 2011  |  By bassman123

 |  Version: TuneXP 1.5

Pros

The boot time on this mature XP system has definitely Improved. Noticeably. It's not like new out of the box, but of course there's more installed and running than that.

Cons

Could be more explanation as to what it's doing.

"The simple things in XP"

May 31, 2011  |  By mab14681

 |  Version: TuneXP 1.5

Pros

The raw, simple tweaks that actually worked throughout the life of XP are in this. Simple install. Remember to stick to what you know.

Cons

I would have liked to see one or two tweaks more customizable but, for the most part, that would be overkill.

Summary

There are only a few common tweaks in XP and later MS OSs that actually make any noticeable improvement. Ignore hard-core tweakers unless they know your set-up inside and out; this does the few simple changes to make things a little smoother, particularly on older hardware. Again, stick to what you know. This is totally free and is not a residual-runtime app. Make the changes and that's it.

"excellent little program"

May 02, 2010  |  By Video Monster

 |  Version: TuneXP 1.5

Pros

I installed this on Vista only to move the boot files and it worked as advertised. It made a massive improvement in my boot time.

Cons

The only issue is when first starting, it says something about not finding files to start, but you just click OK and away you go. I don't really hold this against the program because it is not certified for Vista in the first place.

Summary

Try it out, I'm sure you'll like it
