Why ‘Tuneup’ ?
When we install the fresh Operating System in our PC it work like butter and we are so happy to see that all thing are performing so well and fast, but don’t get too excited it’s just a beginning as more and more 3rd party application you install the performance of PC get reduces and at some point of time it take too much time to load and to start up and shut down. To make your PC as new as it was there is a great tool or software called “TuneUp Utilities 2012“.
TuneUp Utilities is a utility software suite for Microsoft Windows designed to help manage, maintain, optimize, configure and troubleshoot a computer system. It is produced and developed by TuneUp Software GmbH, headquartered in Darmstadt, Germany and co-founded by Tibor Schiemann and Christoph Laumann in 1997.
TuneUp Utilities 2012, the latest version of the product, consists of 30 different components, all of which can be accessed from within a central hub, called TuneUp Start Center. Most of these components can also be invoked from the Start menu. TuneUp Start Center itself can show the components either in a category view (default) or in a list view.

Status and recommendations
The Status and recommendations category houses four sub-sections: 1-Click Maintenance, Performance Optimizer, Fix Problems and Live Optimization. The 1-Click Maintenance section runs multiple routine maintenance tools at once. The Performance Optimizer and Fix Problems utilities are intended to provide tips to identify and fix potential problems and increase performance, such as disabling unnecessary visual effects and disabling or removing unused Windows services and programs. Live Optimization, according to the application’s author, is intended to improve the responsiveness of Windows applications by tweaking their execution priorities
The Optimize system section includes TuneUp Program Deactivator, which unloads programs from memory and prevents their further automatic execution, an alternative to uninstalling them. While disabled programs continue to consume disk space, they no longer affect the startup time, the shutdown time and the system performance. Other components include a defragmentation tool, a registry cleaner, and a startup manager to replace MSConfig.
The Gain disk space section itself is a disk cleanup component which replaces Windows Disk Cleanup. It also gives access to TuneUp Disk Space Explorer (a disk space analyzer) and TuneUp Shredder (a data erasure tool).
The Fix problems section provides access to TuneUp Repair Wizard which allows users to selectively repair problems that TuneUp Utilities cannot automatically detect; e.g. icons getting corrupted or items like My Computer and Recycle Bin permanently vanished from Windows Desktop.
Also in this category, there is TuneUp Disk Doctor. It can check the integrity of files stored on hard disk drives and salvage damaged files. It can also scan for physical defects known asbad sectors and isolate them. TuneUp Disk Doctor is a graphical replacement for Windows CHKDSK.
Other items include a task manager, a system information tool and an undelete tool.
The last section provides access to TuneUp Styler and TuneUp System Control. TuneUp System Control is a program that allows access to some of the obscure or harder-to-access settings of Microsoft Windows, similar to Tweak UI. TuneUp Styler allows for customization of the Windows user interface by changing the desktop appearance, icons, and the logon and startup screens.
The Turbo Mode, accessible from the bottom of Start Center, gives system a performance boost by temporarily disabling some of Windows services and features of user’s choice, such as Windows Aero themes and visual effects.
The Economy Mode accessible from the bottom of Start Center, gives system a more battery power to save by reducing background programmes and CPU power to saves battery.
As my personal opinion is concern, this software is great to have or i must say must have. it comes with so many essential tools that your system will never get down and runs like super fast as it was when it was newly installed. the feature like One click maintenance and the Screen styler option is very good. and the best part is that its so easy to use and manage that you will never find any difficulty while using this software.
