AVG PC TuneUp is a PC system optimization application promising to provide more storage space, faster speeds, longer battery life, and less crashing, all with a set-and-forget interface.
This software is an all-in-one suite that has been designed to keep you and all your computers running at optimal speed and efficiency. With this Tune-up a single subscription is able to cover every device you have; whether that be a Windows PC, a Mac laptop, or an Android tablet. It has over 40 built-in tools that can help you optimize your PC’s performance with minimal input.
AVG PC TuneUp lets you gain more speed with less crashing, longer battery life and more disk space, whether you choose automatic maintenance or want to take a more hands-on approach. It keeps your computer at peak performance with its patented flagship feature Sleep Mode, which stops all resource-draining programs from slowing down your PC.
This software runs via the ‘AVG Zen’ network, which allows you to remotely manage all your registered devices from a single intuitive management screen. With the new ‘Automatic Software Updater,’ AVG PC TuneUp now gathers updates automatically as soon as they’re released, so all new features and improvements are automatically installed without the need for manual installation.
With this, you can easily free up more disk space, thanks to new Disk, Duplicate, and Browser Cleaners. New for 2017 is the Automatic Software Updater, which checks and scans popular programs for the latest updates and installs them automatically.
AVG PC TuneUp Features
Status and recommendations
The Status and recommendations category houses four sub-sections: Click Maintenance, Performance Optimizer, Fix Problems and Live Optimization. The maintenance section runs multiple routine maintenance tools at once. The Performance Optimizer and Fix Problems utilities are intended to provide tips to identify and fix potential problems and increase performance, such as disabling unnecessary visual effects and disabling or removing unused Windows services and programs. Live Optimization, according to the application’s author, is intended to improve the responsiveness of Windows applications by tweaking their execution priorities.
The Optimize system section includes TuneUp Program Deactivator, which unloads programs from memory and prevents their further automatic execution, an alternative to uninstalling them. While disabled programs continue to consume disk space, they no longer affect the start-up time, the shutdown time and the system performance.
The Gain disk space section itself is a disk clean-up component that replaces Windows Disk Clean-up. It also gives access to TuneUp Disk Space Explorer (a disk space analyzer) and TuneUp Shredder (a data erasure tool).
The Fix problems section provides access to TuneUp Repair Wizard which allows users to selectively repair problems that TuneUp Utilities cannot automatically detect. Also, in this category, there is a TuneUp Disk Doctor. It can check the integrity of files stored on hard disk drives and salvage damaged files. It can also scan for physical defects known as bad sectors and isolate them.
The last section provides access to TuneUp Styler and TuneUp System Control. TuneUp Styler allows for customization of the Windows user interface by changing the desktop appearance, icons, and the logon and start-up screens.
The Turbo Mode, accessible from the bottom of Start Centre, gives the system a performance boost by temporarily disabling some of Windows services and features of the user’s choice, such as Windows Aero themes and visual effects.
The Economy Mode accessible from the bottom of the Start Centre reduces battery usage by closing background programs and underclocking the CPU.
The Duplicate Finder comes with version 14. It is accessible from the “CLEAN UP” tab located in Start Centre, which finds and removes cloned photos, music, and files which could be wasting hard drive space.
The Flight Mode is an extended version of the Economy Mode but also disables Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices.
