TuneUp Utilities 2010 keeps Windows XP, Vista and 7 clean, disables unnecessary programs and gives you the best system performance. This program would be good for anyone who is working on computer repair training.
More than 12 years of Windows optimization experience has gone into developing the software. One of the key updates to the 2010 version is its compatibility with Windows 7. Unbeknownst to most users, Windows 7 installs a lot of unnecessary files that slow down your PC. TuneUp Utilities is able to clean up all the clutter – maximizing the new operating system’s performance. The 2010 version also supports the 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows XP and Vista.
Other updated key features include:
TuneUp Turbo Mode – allows users to temporarily disable unnecessary background processes – with a single click – to reduce program interruptions and increase frames per second (FPS) in games.
TuneUp Live Optimization – monitors and prevents background programs from using up too much of the PC’s resources, and improving programs’ startup and response times, even when the computer is bogged down with a number of applications running simultaneously.
Automatic Maintenance – starts only when the PC is not being actively used, so programs are not slowed down or interrupted. Saving and increasing battery life, the tool will not start if laptops and netbooks are being run on battery power.
Redesigned Start Center – This immediately shows users any problems or bottlenecks, such as pend-ing optimization tasks that need to be performed. It provides users with access to individual features, while giving them an overview of the PC’s health. The redesigned Start Center is even easier to use. The previous version of TuneUp Utilities had seven categories. In TuneUp Utilities 2010, this has been reduced to four sections that give users faster access to optimization and customization features.
Greater Ease of Use –
Windows can now be optimized with just a few clicks of the mouse; the features in TuneUp Utilities 2010 are more easily accessible than ever before. TuneUp Utilities 2010 does not make use of technical jargon—enabling no-vice computer users to maintain their PCs without any hassles.
Configuring System Startup – TuneUp Utilities 2010 recognizes which programs automatically start when the PC is switched on. The list of easy-to-understand descriptions for thou-sands of startup programs is regularly updated by TuneUp. Users can disable unnecessary startup programs with a single click. With each switched-off entry, PC performance increases, and boot-up time de-creases significantly.
Performance Advisor –TuneUp Utilities 2010 lists the computer’s most notorious “performance hogs”. The software explains in easy-to-understand terms what is slowing down the PC. It also offers clear recommendations (for example, what complex graphic ef-fects are really necessary and why) and helps users identify where the problems are and how to correct them.
Fixing Typical Problems –TuneUp Utilities 2010 fixes the most difficult problems in Windows XP, Vista and 7. For example: Users receive the message, “Disk Read Error”. By thoroughly scanning the hard disk, TuneUp Utilities 2010 keeps it running reliably. The Recycle Bin has disappeared.

When trying to install programs, users receive error messages relating to the Windows Installer Service.
