Clean up

tune up utilities clean up

This Module allows you to quickly clean junk files and residues. Optionally you can find and remove duplicate files. Review large files that are hogging hardisk space.
  • Clean up Windows and programs option helps gaining more disk space. Click “open” to start optimizing Windows Files and Programs. Tick all areas where you want the optimization to be done. Click Clean button and TuneUp will start the optimization process.
  • Clean up browser option helps you to optimize installed browsers. This will remove browser’s history, saved passwords, cookies, auto-fill data and browser’s cache also. It is recommended to uncheck Saved passwords field. This will prevent TuneUp from deleting your saved passwords in installed browsers. You may uncheck other fields if you want.
  • Remove broken shortcuts feature removes all broken shortcuts on your computer. Using this feature all leftover broken shortcuts will be removed from your computer permanently.
  • Disable Windows functions can be used to disable all unused Windows functions. Functions, which takes a lot of disk space, so disabling them is always a good option.
  • Find and remove duplicate files used to remove duplicate files on your computer. Duplicate files are not good for your computer’s health. Finding and deleting duplicate files is always a pain but this feature does it very well. Some duplicate files maybe important for you. So make sure, you take a look at – What you are deleting?

For example- You have Dropbox installed on your computer. You have a file named Future Plans.doc in your computer and on Dropbox also. It will show you those files also. So make sure, to take a look before deleting. TuneUp scans all areas of your computer and finds all duplicate files. Remove the duplicate files accordingly.

  • Find and delete large amount of data is used to find large files on your computer and delete them permanently. Helps in gaining more disk space and create a room for new files. Large files on your computer can be your movies, TV shows, data backup and other important things. Use this feature carefully. In case you mess up with this feature, you may delete your important files.

tune up disk analysis

Select drive you want to analyze for large files and data. Click Next to start the process.  As you can see, most of the large files are movies. You can analyze and delete files from here.

  • Securely Delete data – When you delete any file from your computer, it goes to recycle bin. Even, if you have used Shift + Del. Still, that file is recoverable. To permanently throw away files from your computer, use this feature. Files deleted by this program are not recoverable. It is particularly helpful when you want to destroy an amount of information which is private.

Once you click “Next.” TuneUp will start deleting files from your selected location. Now, that is all about Clean up options in TuneUp Utilities 2014.

Fix Problems

Fix Problems option in TuneUp Utilities helps in fixing common problems which can occur while using Windows.

tune up fix problems

Primary functionality of this module is to provide fixes to commonly faced problems. You can also check for Hardisk Errors, restore deleted files, manage running processes and view System information.
  • Fix common problems like- Icons are displayed incorrectly, Recycle Bin icon is no longer displayed, Taskbar cannot be displayed etc. You can easily fix these problems with this feature of TuneUp Utilities.

Select the problem which you are facing. Click “Next” and your problem is resolved. These are the problems which most of the users face most of the time. You may not find all problems, because you never know – Which problem occurs suddenly at a given point of time.

  • Check Hard disk for errors is a very useful option. It prevents bad sectors on your Hard Drive. Do this optimization, thrice a month can prevent your hard disk from bad sectors and failure. TuneUp says my hard drive don’t have any errors. But if you drive has then select Normal Analysis and optimize your drives. TuneUp will remove all the errors in one go.
  • Restore Deleted Files – As the name suggests, it is used to restore/recover permanently deleted files. Which are deleted using Shift + Del or from recycle bin?

Use restoring search criteria to filter your search. You can give extension of the file. For example – .TXT, .DOC, .MKV etc. You can also search for 0 byte files by selecting the option Search for 0 byte size files. You can also refine your search by file’s condition.

Once, the search is completed. TuneUp will show you all deleted files from your specified location.

Select the file you want to restore and click on Restore button. TuneUp will ask you – if you want to restore the file at its original location or you want to specify an alternate location.

  • Display and close running process – Close running process and save memory for other programs. This feature will let you display and close programs without opening the Windows default Task Manager.
  • Show system information is used to display complete information of your computer like- Hardware in use, Software information etc.

Personalize option helps you to personalize Windows experience. It helps users to apply various themes and icon sets. You can use default themes comes with TuneUp Utilities. And you can also download themes from TuneUp website.

  • Personalize options and behaviors – You can change Windows animation effects, menu appearance and other visual things with this feature. This is a DIY feature because every person has its own taste of themes and animation.
  • Personalize the appearance of Windows – With this feature you can apply icon sets, themes, animations and modify the look of whole Windows. You can also download themes from TuneUp Website and use them inside TuneUp Styler.

 Optimize

Optimize-Home

In this module, you can optimize Windows speed and get maximum system power to the task at hand. Disable unused resource hungry applications and disable unnecessary startup applications. 

This is most powerful feature of TuneUp Utilities. You can disable installed programs, disable start-up programs, uninstall installed programs, configure automatic optimization, clean registry, defragment registry, optimize system start-up and shutdown and defragment hard disk.

  • Disable programs – You can disable those programs which are not frequently used. It helps in faster performance of your computer. Whenever, you want to use any disabled program you can easily enable it.
  • Disable Startup program – It helps in reducing boot time of your Windows PC. You can disable startup programs which will help in reducing boot time. Disabled startup program will load after system startup or whenever you want.
  • Uninstall programs – You can uninstall installed programs with this feature. Not so different from default windows uninstaller.
  • Configure Live Optimization – You can configure Live Optimization for automatic 1 click maintenance at specified intervals. It is enabled by default. You just have to specify the optimization time.
  • Clean Registry – Clean orphan registry files with this feature of TuneUp Utilities. It optimizes Windows Registry for better performance.

Once you click Start Cleaning button. TuneUp will start optimizing the registry files.

  • Defragment Registry – Helps you to defragment windows registry files. It fixes Windows Database gaps and prevents error.
  • Optimize system startup and shutdown – Want to improve startup and shutdown time. This feature of TuneUp Utilities can help you. Just start it and accept all recommendations from TuneUp Utilities and that’s about it.

I take very good care of my PC. That’s why TuneUp is not showing any recommendations. But, your case can be different. If, TuneUp shows you any recommendations then accept it for better optimizations and results.

  • Defragment Hard Disk – Far better as compared to default Windows Drive Defragmenter. Rearranges data blocks on Hard Disk and helps in faster loading of programs and documents.

 Dashboard

From Dashboard you can check optimization reports. Switch between various modes and configure them for maximum results. Dashboard also has Flight Mode. It switches off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi of your PC. Dashboard also shows Recommendations. You can accept recommendations for more optimization.

TuneUp-Dashboard

You can switch between Economy, Standard and Turbo mode. These modes are configured by default. You can configure them according to your requirements. These settings may vary from user to user depending on factors like System Specifications and Internet speed.

All Functions

All-Functions-Tab

You can control All Functions of TuneUp Utilities from this tab. I have shown you each and every option. For ease of access, you can directly go to All Functions tab.

My Experience with TuneUp Utilities 2014

The best thing about TuneUp is that it is totally automated. All I had to do is, setup the functionality according to my needs. It provides all the necessary recommendations and changes needed. The UI was very simple and it is a great improvement over the previous versions. It covers all aspects of Windows Pc maintenance. After using Tuneup Utilities I can feel the difference in my Pc’s performance. Now its faster and more responsive.

In my opinion TuneUp Utilities should include Driver Updater tool and Game Booster in future versions. Well, it will be nice to have it because updated drivers do make a lot of difference when performance is in spot light. TuneUp already provides live optimization and Turbo mode but a Game booster with recommendations will be of great help for gamers struggling to get the peak performance.

TuneUp Utilities 2014 is one of the best Windows Software, I have ever used. It’s worth spending $49.95 on TuneUp Utilities 2014 if you are frustrated with your slow system. Share your thoughts via Comments.

    I’ve been using the older version of TuneUp for quite a while now. It’s extremely effective and definitely does a tonne of cleaning. The best part that I like is that you can just schedule it and forget about it and it does the work weekly in the background.

  26. christo chiramukhathu says:

    As AVG is one of the foremost antivirus software, hope the product from same manufaturers will be up to their standard. I downloaded it for varification.

    Keeping windows as functional as the first installation day is a good matter. But when, later garbages are add in registry and system folders, the system performance will become dull.

    Hope TuneUp Utilities 2014 would be good solution for it. Also I would request to include me also in list of users having free serial key.

    Thanking you

    Christo Chiramukhathu

  103. Tuneup Utility is nothing in front of Advance system care . All you have to do is to set it up (Advance system care) and click on Boost system care and it will automatically shows you the problems and hand to hand solves the problems. And another benefit is that Advance system care will provide you the smart RAM compression technology equipped Smart Ram Cleaner according to which if your system is getting heavy at multi-tasking or heavy processing. Just click on deep clean and you will find everything very smooth.
