AVG PC Tuneup 2012 is a comprehensive system maintenance and optimization tool that will help you cut system clutter, fix Registry problems, apply a host of useful Windows tweaks, and generally optimise just about every area of your PCs performance.
Is your hard drive crammed with leftover "temporary" files and assorted junk, for instance? PC Tuneup's Disk Cleaner will quickly identify surplus files that can safely be deleted; a Duplicate File Finder uncovers duplicate files that may be wasting drive space; the Disk Explorer reveals which folders are using the most space, handy for picking out the resource hogs; and when you've finished, the excellent defragger optimises your file layout to deliver the best possible speeds.
Resource-hogging software is another major performance drain, of course. And so PC Tuneup's Uninstall Manager will assist in removing applications you no longer use; the Startup Manager allows you to control exactly what gets launched when your system starts; and the program makes it easy (and safe) to disable unnecessary Windows services.
The Registry Maintenance section may then scan your Registry, looking for redundant keys and other problems, and deleting them at a click. After which the Defragment option will optimise your Registry layout to save the maximum amount of RAM and drive space.
A truly excellent Internet Optimizer gives you access to all the speed settings that matter. So as well as the usual TCP/IP options, it allows you to tweak Windows settings, DNS values, even the maximum browser connections for IE, Firefox and Opera. Or, if you prefer the easy life, you can have PC Tuneup set everything up automatically in just a few clicks.
There are a host of other useful tools. So File Recover quickly restores accidentally deleted files; the Privacy module can wipe your browsing and Windows history, as well as securely deleting files or entire disks; AVG's Task Manager lists everything running on your system right now, highlighting potentially untrusted programs; and the Tweak Manager gives speedy access to more than 200 tweaks for Windows, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office and more.
And if managing all this is beginning to sound too much like hard work, don't worry. Many of these tasks can be automated, so one click can tell PC Tuneup to clean the Registry, wipe away junk files, erase your browsing history, repair and defragment your hard drive.
Please note, you do not require AVG security software to use AVG PC Tuneup 2012. You can choose to use Tuneup as a standalone product, whilst it is also the "PC Analyzer" component in the latest AVG Internet Security 2012, Anti-Virus 2012 and Anti-Virus Free Edition. By purchasing AVG PC Tuneup 2012, the "PC Analyzer" will launch Tuneup and will enable full using of the cleansing, optimisation and system maintenance tools.
