  • 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.

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.

  • 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.


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.

All Functions


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.

christo chiramukhathu - March 14, 2014

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

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.
