TuneUp Utilities is a suite of tools that provide maintenance and optimization for Windows PCs.

TuneUp Utilities provides convenient access to information about your PC as well as ways to maintain and optimize your Windows installation. This isn’t a single program but rather a suite of tools. You can use these tools individually as needed, but there’s also a convenient umbrella. The program also features one-click maintenance, which eliminates any potential hassle. You can run one-click maintenance on demand, or have it run automatically at set intervals.

TuneUp Utilities can optimize your registry by deleting unnecessary entries, repairing broken entries and reducing the size of this now-corrected database. With an optimized registry, Windows can launch faster and run more smoothly. This suite can also improve hard drive performance and usage by deleting unnecessary files and alerting you to installed programs that you haven’t used in a long time. The suite provides a host of other ways to tweak Windows so that it performs better based on your usage, and it makes solid recommendations in that regard.

TuneUp Utilities has been around quite a while and has certainly become more refined over the years in many areas. One area where that seems not to be the case is in the speed and efficiency of the scanning engine. Scans can be quite slow and resource-intensive to the point that you’ll rarely want to run them when sitting at your computer. Better to schedule it or start the scan and walk away.

Another issue to consider, which is not necessarily a fault of TuneUp Utilities, is that cleanup suites like this can be counterproductive in the hands of a novice. TuneUp Utilities has gotten better in this regard but can still be overly aggressive at times. Be careful when using it and always create a restore point that you can use to revert to the original.

  • An assortment of Windows tools
