AVG PC TuneUp 2014.P.295

AVG PC TuneUp Editor's Review

AVG Technologies always provided us with applications exclusively channeled for our virtual security. AVG Antivirus was for many years a free solution to protect our home computers. But the company decided to go further by releasing a new software which brings their former expertise to a new level. PC Tuneup is a complete suite that tries to optimize your operating system and increase the performance of your machine.

AVG PC Tuneup is focused on scanning the registry entries in order to find imminent errors in the Windows Registry. The scanning additional options include also reports for installed application paths, extensions and eventually files associations. If you really want to go in-depth by checking all kinds of additional scanning options you might be overwhelmed by the time spent completing the operation.

Unlike similar products AVG PC Tuneup gives brief but concise reports which can give you a supplementary view about the background of you Windows operating system. Based on this reports you can choose to repair or delete unnecessary entries or clean history details.

The software comes with a simple main interface that features four tabs, the first one featuring the main scanning process. The next one is the System Advisor, an automatic problems detector that gives you hints on how to improve your system by performing basic tasks such as setting the administrative properties, start-up functions, etc.

Resource Usage is the next tab that features a graphical view of the CPU, Memory, Disk and Network usage in real time. Here you can see how your main installed applications influence the machine's behavior. Advanced Tools is the last tab, a set of small utilities that can help you perform additional maintenance stuff. From here you can cleanup, defrag, or wipe your disks, search for duplicate files, check start-up items, recover files, or speed-up your internet connection. Unfortunately many of these utilities are blocked in the trial version of the software.

Pluses: The Advanced Tools segment gives the user a high-end control of his own system.

Drawbacks / flaws: Slow scanning process. Many of these utilities are blocked in the trial version of the software.

In conclusion: Useful piece of software which, unlike other similar applications, really improves your system performance.

version reviewed: 10.0.0.20
