After having used your computer for while, you will probably feel that it is not as fast as just after installing the operating system. This is when a system optimizer may come in handy. TuneUp Utilities is a suite of applications intended to recover your system's out-of-the-box efficiency.

One of the characteristics that make this product surpass other applications of the same type is a thoroughly designed graphic user interface. It is outstanding how inexpert users can find their way through the extensive number of functions included in the suite. Moreover, the program is absolutely dummy-proof as it includes a feature called “one-click maintenance”, which checks and corrects errors on the most critical areas of your system. What is more, this feature can also be run in autopilot mode, that is, you can schedule scans on a regular basis. Besides being functional, the interface is undoubtedly beautiful as well.

However, usability and beauty are not enough when it comes to increasing your computer's speed. This suite can check for errors on various areas. Perhaps the single area with a higher impact on your system's decrease in speed and stability is the Registry. Tune-up Utilities can scan your Registry, find obsolete, useless and defective entries and fix them for you. Most recent version can also find duplicate files and turn your computer to flight mode as a way to save battery life.

In general, Tune-up Utilities is not only a highly reputed but really effective tool. It has proven its value over the years in which its developers have constantly released improved versions. However, you should consider that this is a paid product while CCleaner, which many consider the best of its kind, offers a completely free version.
