Overpriced for what it does. There are lots of freeware and lower cost programs that do a better job.

I purchased the 2014 version and now regret it. My Windows 8.1 computer got BSODs consistently after installing and running it. I had to reset my OS several times as a result and the option to refresh did not work. The two things I disliked the most was the fact that it installs itself to run at startup and offers no way to terminate once its running. It also caused some installs and programs to not run without any alerts asking you if you wish to continue. Once I got this uninstalled my system became stable once more and ran normally. I regret that I wasted money on this.

Screwed my computer up and when I managed to uninstall it using JV16 Powertools and Revo Uninstaller Pro together, my computer started to work normally again.

Download CCleaner & a free defragger, if need be use the winapp2 add-on & you don't need this software which will probably at some point mess your day up.

This is the worst program ever!!!! I am surprised that Betanews has ads to buy it. The phone number for tech support NEVER gets answered. When you leave a message they never call you back. When you submit a request on line, you get an email saying they will contact you, but that never happens. Even after you purchase the product, you will get 20 pop ups a day to buiy it. Is there anyway to completely unistall every trace of it? Rating is -10!

A simple advice Do NOT install the trial version on any computer! As they will force you to purchase as you cannot deinstall it

Beware of any program that has 'utility' in it's name ~ There once was a place for this sort of program 10 - 15 years ago ~ Now unneeded & can do more harm than good.

Back in the days of XP64, this was a worthwhile product because several features were included in it that the OS did not supply and could not be reliably obtained via freeware.

That was a long time ago, the Windows OS now includes many of the features built into this package and the rest are available via reliable open source or freeware applications.

Any claims made about speeding up the OS are out-and-out false and cannot be substantiated via credible metrics. The Windows OS is self-tuning and requires no aid in optimizing itself.

There is absolutely no necessity to waste money on this product and paying for it is analogous to lighting your money on fire.

I have to agree with Input Overload in his assessment: this is a con job at best, preying on ignorance.

I'll give it ONE star because that's the lowest this site supports.

We recently installed the 2012 version on several of our office computers. We were using the program for some issues on 1 PC in particular and decided to try and speed up the others. 1 of the worst mistakes we ever made. This program has caused all 3 PC's to have serious issues. I have had to have a company come in to fix all 3 PC's. We have tried on numerous occasions to contact their customer support here in the US. No one answers the phone. They ask you to leave a contact # to return your call. After 3 messages in 3 1/2 weeks still no return call.

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SOFTWARE TO ANYONE. IF FOR NOTHING ELSE JUST THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE

I'm no Troll, I've been using IBM clones since DOS only 286's & everything in this suite can be got for free without the resource hungry junk. Enable GOD mode & most of these facilities are there already in the Windows install.

Yeah I don't honestly understand all the hating. I purchase this and install this for everyone's system that doesn't know enough about computers to keep them from getting internet HIV. This and a decent antivirus program of course. This just kind-of no-brains what I can do manually. It's super easy and super effective. Don't believe all the 1 star trolls.

i had very good experience with this in XP, but it was only a useless heavy load on Win 7 on my super laptop.
slows down every simple single task!! my system had never frozen before (for 9 months) before installing TuneUp Utilities!!
definitely not recommended for Win 7.

TuneUp well a nice tool in the old WinXP days has not cut it on Win7.
Bloat, OS functions becoming unstable with TuneUp installed, and it is IMO just as easy to tweak Win7 manually or with one of the free tweak programs out there.

I have to say that with Windows 7, pay for utilities are no longer needed. Maybe 15 years ago they were a must but now they can do more harm than good. You are wasting your money.

If you want to change something there is sure to be a free application to do the job.
