AVG TuneUp covers all your PC maintenance needs, and we don't just mean the usual "empty the temporary folders and delete your browser history". The program cleans up after major applications, locates duplicate files, removes bulky startup programs, warns about software which slows your PC, deactivates unnecessary processes, optimises battery life, suggest speedup optimizations and much more.
If you're the hands-on type then you can take full control, but otherwise the program is able to do most of its work entirely automatically.
The Disk Doctor module will scan your drives for errors and report what should be fixed and how it needs to be repaired. If you need to safely erase important files, the AVG Shredder tool enables you to pick files and folders and wipe them to a point where they cannot be recovered. There's a comprehensive System Information module, whilst a powerful Registry Editor enables advanced users to manually delve deep in to the Registry to solve potential issues.
A "Software Updater" will scan your system and check for new versions of installed software then either notify you or automatically update in the background.
Should anything go wrong, the Rescue Center module tracks every change, optimization and update and enables you to quickly go back to a previous state and undo the changes.
Includes a 3-PC, 1-Year license.
Review by Mike Williams.
Most system performance issues are often a result of other software clashing with your brand new software. For instance, security software can clash with a background process, such as a system maintenance tool or defragmentation software. Another cause of system slowdown, is a result of two software applications performing a similar task. As an example, Windows includes a firewall switched on as a default. Your new security suite is likely to include a firewall. You only need one firewall running. In this example, try turning off your system firewall.
Uninstalling Your New Software
Occasionally you may need to either temporarily or permanently remove your new software.
On a Windows computer, go to the Control Panel and choose Programs and Features. Locate the program within the list, then click it to highlight it. Finally, click the Uninstall button at the top of the list and follow the instructions to remove the program from your PC.
On an Apple Mac computer, using Finder, locate the Applications folder. Within the Applications folder, find the name of the application you wish to remove. Simply drag the icon to your Trash icon in your dock. Empty the Trash to remove the files from your computer.
Still Having Problems?
If you cannot solve your system performance issues or are struggling to remove your software, we advise contacting the software manufacturer. If you placed an order, see the section in the order which states Support options. Alternatively, go to the Contact Us page to contact store support directly.
