tune_up_utilitiesRecently when I came across TuneUp Utilities, I thought it’s a kinda shareware program. But I recognized soon after installing it that I was Wrong. This software optimizes the performance of your PC and recommends us to do lot of safe performance changes to speed up the computer and have good going PC. Quite recently, they have released their 2011 version of the program. The below are the 6 cool and awesome features which I liked about TuneUp Utilities 2011.

1-Click Maintenance:

This should be the first step in the path of optimizing a computer. This tool completely tweak the performance of a PC fully and automatically. The 1-Click Maintenance Analysis will perform the system checks which are important in fixing PC Problems, increases the performance of programs & games and turns off superfluous programs. It cleans and defrag the registry, remove broken shortcuts, delete temp files, optimize system startup and shutdown and finally check for defragmentation of hard disk. You can also opt-out the options if we want to. The cool thing about this is it schedules the maintenance every 3 days which can also be adjusted in the settings.

TuneUp Program Deactivator:

This tool gives you a massive performance boost to the system. Often we install many programs and leave it without uninstalling it once the job is done. Those programs will obviously occupy the large space and use the memory drastically in the system startup which eventually end up your system running slow. This tool will disable unwanted programs and processes running in the background. This will also help in decreased booting time for windows and increasing battery life.

TuneUp Turbo Mode:tuneup1

In this mode we can give an immediate performance boost to programs and games which we like to be speed-up. We can configure the turbo mode to postpone the defragmentation, maintenance and update tasks when it is turned on. It also reduces variety of system tasks like visual effects and background functions.

Increase Performance:
We strive hard all the time to increase the performance of our computer. Using TuneUp utilities its like a Whizz. In this option I found really interesting things like  tuning Hardware and Software, tweaking IE settings and Visual Effects optimization. Trust me.!All done in seconds. The good thing is its also suggesting to have an AdBlocker for my Firefox.

Fix Problems:

We always like to fix things up in our computer. Using Fix Problems tab we can fix common problems like checking the hard disk for errors, end unwanted and stubborn processes, etc. We can also disable programs that causes high system load. It will also check for device drivers performance and advice the recommended solution to the problem. Tuneup Disk Doctor performs a through checkup of the partition drives and fix common errors.

Gain Space:

Our Hard disk will be piling up with lot of junk and unwanted files we never care about. Using this tool I cleaned up nearly 2 GB of Disk space. We can also securely delete data using TuneUp shredder and restore the data if we need it later.

Conclusion:

I like the TuneUp Utilities Gadget which gets embedded in the windows sidebar after Installation. It updates automatically in periodic intervals and informs the user about the update. I am expecting the creators of TuneUp Utilities to add a network based support which will be more useful for System Administrator’s to optimize the networked workstations from a single console.
