AVG PC TuneUp – Windows Optimization
With the AVG PC TuneUp, formerly known as TuneUp Utilities, in the current version 18.3, the software forge AVG, which is well-known for its antivirus solutions, offers a very useful tool collection that can be used to optimize and maintain Windows in various ways. In addition, the 15 days of free shareware will provide some additional features that are helpful at the operating system level in everyday use of the computer.
The suite includes over 30 tools covering performance enhancement, maintenance, disk cleaning, and customization. With one-click maintenance, AVG PC TuneUp automatically executes the most important options so that the user has the least possible configuration effort.
It offers far-reaching functions to clean up the system of unnecessary garbage, which not only supports Windows itself, but also a steadily growing number of third-party programs – for example, even popular applications like iTunes are freed from unnecessary data. Among other things, temporary files or duplicate databases can be detected and removed.
In addition to the clearing to release as much memory as possible, Windows can be further improved by further improvements, such as the deletion of redundant autostart entries or the deactivation of services that are generally not required. An existing turbo mode snaps off unnecessary background programs at the click of a mouse.
Save data and fix errors
Also included are recovery options to recover deleted files or to correct incorrect Windows settings. Safety-critical conditions such as gaps in the system can also be detected. Aside from the abilities of AVG PC TuneUp to free the hard disk from data garbage, it can also be checked for possible errors or made more efficient by defragmentation. Extensive analysis functions also permanently depict the status of the PC as well as ongoing processes.
Protect the battery and adjust the look
In order to reduce the power consumption of the computer, there is the economy mode, which is intended to reduce the power consumption of various hardware components, as well as a flight mode to disable WLAN, Bluetooth and Co., to run off the socket, the running time of notebooks or Tablets continue to increase. Rounding out the package offered by AVG PC TuneUp are various visual customization options on the Windows user interface as well as showing hidden setting options.
What’s new in TuneUp Utilities 2017
In the current version, AVG TuneUp now also includes an automatic software updater, which independently searches for new versions of installed programs on the Internet and, if desired, even updates them in the background. A sleep mode feature puts unneeded programs into sleep mode, reducing the amount of system resources they use and reducing the impact on laptops. In addition, the cleaner has been further optimized.
Leaves nothing to be desired
AVG PC TuneUp comes with all the tools you need to get a flagged Windows back on track. Unfortunately, the software is no longer available as a full-time unlimited version since its name change. Instead, a 1-year subscription for 34.99 euros can be purchased. A permanently free alternative to AVG’s system optimization collection, for example, is the Free System Utilities.
