TuneUp Utilities 2012 Review

TuneUp Utilities

We were contacted to try out TuneUp Utilities 2012. I was pretty excited. My computer is not that old but lately it has been taking longer to do things, especially starting up. I was pretty impressed reading about it. It had a lot of great features!

  • Boosts PC speed by up to 50%, all thanks to Program Deactivator™ 2012
  • Extends battery life with an all-new TuneUp Economy Mode
  • Saves power by up to 30% and upgrades PCs with an enhanced power management
  • over 30 tools in 1: more speed, better stability, less problems
Sounded pretty good to me! I’m no computer whiz though so I had planned on letting my husband figure it all out for me, I’m always afraid I’ll mess something up! Unfortunately, my husband has been having some health issues so I figured I’d better just figure it out for myself. To my surprise it was quite easy to do! Downloading took no time at all. The whole “getting started” phase was really simple. It only took minutes to download and get the whole thing set up. Next thing I know it was running the scans.
I love how simple the 1-Click Maintenance is! It literally does everything for you! The 1-Click Maintenance performs the following:

  • Cleaning and restructuring the registry
  •  Deleting temporary files off
  • defragmenting the hard disk
  •  Removing broken shortcuts
  • Optimizing system start-up and shutdown
As I said, my computer is not that old so I was surprised how many issues the 1-Click Maintenance found! I can’t imagine how many it would find on an older computer! Best of all it finds everything for you and fixes it! Like I said, I don’t know a lot about computers so if I can run this anyone can! It was great after it ran all the scans, you can go through and select the programs you don’t use all the time but don’t want to delete. This speeds up your start up time, apparently a lot of programs even if they are not in use still run and slow down your computer. However, if you want to use that program again all you do is open it and it’s ready to go!What’s new?

TuneUp Economy Mode: Users can use this innovative new tool to work or play on their laptop longer by enhancing the Windows® power management system. It turns off power-hungry devices sooner and throttles the CPU when performance is not needed. This useful feature also increases the lifespan of PCs and their hardware components by keeping constant power usage to a minimum, which reduces heat levels. Benefit: Users can work, play, watch movies or enjoy the Internet for a longer time on their laptops, cut energy costs, and increase the lifespan of hardware components on computers or laptops.

Comparision: Some key features I’ve found that TuneUp Utilities has that some others dont:

  • Hard Drive Failure Detection
  • Live Optimization
  • Program Deactivator
  • Turbo Mode
  • 1-Click Mantinence
  • Improved Battery life
  • Saves energy costs up to 30%
I would reccomend using TuneUp Utilities 2012 on your computer. I think you will be surprised how many issues it will find and you will definitely enjoy faster speed! Also, purchasing a single liscense can be used on up to 3 computers. I know now a days almost everyone has multiple computers so this is definitely nice to be able to use it on more than one computer.
Connect: You can follow TuneUp on Facebook and Twitter and their Blog
Buy: A 15 day trial is currently available so you can see for yourself! You can buy the full version for $49.95
I received samples for the purpose of reviewing. Regardless, opinions are my own or my families and are not influenced by any form of compensation.

    If copying really is “the sincerest form of flattery”, TuneUp has nothing to worry about – being the de-facto standard in system optimization, its features are constantly analyzed and “utilized” [implemented] by their competitors, such as the introduction of similar to Live Optimization and Turbo Mode functionality to other optimization software, for example.

    Functionality wise it’s a swiss knife of optimization tools, which, if not as aggressive in their settings as some other competitors [e.g. IObit Advanced SystemCare], still deliver quantifiable improvement in performance. The meticulously crafted UI hasn’t changed dramatically, but the fastidious attention to every minute interface detail just underlines the overall dependability of the application. They’ve improved the usability in TUU 2012 even more by grouping the program settings in one window, unlike the previous versions where these were somewhat fragmented and dispersed around various modules.

    There were some cons with TUU 2011, such as being slower overall to start and to interact with generally than previous versions, but TUU 2012 feels a lot lighter and faster to work with – you don’t get a second chance at making a good first impression, and TUU 2012 outlines its credibility straight from the start with faster loading time, quicker interaction and a second to none ease-of-use.

    The Program Deactivator has also been improved with the addition of Full Automatic Mode and Start-Stop Mode, ensuring optimal performance.

    The excellent new Economy Mode with its power-saving features and improved mobility also seems a great addition to already feature-packed product.

    Nothing is perfect, but to me, with the improvements and new features TUU 2012 comes pretty close.

    Thank you for the opportunity and good luck to all participating!

    I hope I’m still in the draw?

  18. the most exciting feature in Tune Up Utilities, which other PC Utility Programs lacking is the software deactivator. it deactivate any huge program to run in background while your machine is idle and prevent from being slow…
