If there’s one thing we’ve all experienced as Windows PC users, it’s the inevitable degradation of our computers. After all, PCs get bogged down with junk files, registry issues, fragmented hard drives, and other computer-related ills. Fortunately, AVG TuneUp can deal with those issues, and give your PC a jolt of new life. Although the application duplicates some of Windows 10’s basic, built-in tune-up tools, it’s worth a purchase if you want a simple way to improve your PC’s performance.
AVG TuneUp’s Tools
AVG TuneUp is an extremely easy-to-read digital toolbox that contains many performance-boosting applications, as well as extra tools, such as a software updater and driver updater. There are far too many to list here, but I’ll highlight a few standout features.
One of AVG TuneUp’s numerous features is Sleep Mode. It works by identifying software that has lots of startup items or processes running in the background and puts them to sleep until you need them. It’s designed to alleviate the resource strain put on your PC and keep things moving at a brisk pace.
Browser Cleaner and Disk Cleaner have been a part of AVG TuneUp for some time, but they’re now improved to better clean up your hard drive. You see, as you use your computer, the machine can build up leftover temporary data files that can impact browser and general computer effectiveness. These two apps, between them, delete those useless files.
Software Uninstaller is an app that removes bloatware, toolbars, and other unnecessary programs. Like Slimware Utilities SlimCleaner, Software Uninstaller leverages a cloud-based rating system—made up of blacklists, white lists, heuristic algorithms, and user ratings—to recommend apps to ditch. This is valuable for freeing up hard drive space, and it might help you screen out sketchy software, too.
Do You Need More Than What Windows 10 Offers?
AVG TuneUp has many advantages. It not only improves a lethargic PC’s performance, but includes a file shredder, backup app, and other useful utilities. That said, tune-up utilities as a whole aren’t quite as valuable as they once were due to Windows 10’s integrated tools that let you tune-up your PC for free. Our testing numbers prove that.
Plus, third-party tune-up utilities caused two our our testbeds to suffer hard drive failures; Windows 10’s built-in tools haven’t fried our drives. Unfortunately, Windows 10’s tools don’t live on your desktop or Start menu, so it’s easy to overlook them. AVG TuneUp, on the other hand, is something that you know exists after purchasing it.
AVG TuneUp is the tune-up suite to purchase if you want an easy-to-read utility that effectively cleans PCs and don’t want to tinker with Windows 10 (its 30-day, free version is surprisingly potent, too). Otherwise, Iolo System Mechanic is your pick, due to its clean-up effectiveness (the app posted the best boot time of all tested tools) and a tier featuring antivirus protection.
