AVG PC Tuneup is an application designed to help you keep the computer in shape by cleaning files that could slow down the operating system and by optimizing some of its settings.
Similarly to other PC tuneup software solutions on the market, AVG PC Tuneup will scan your computer for problems and repair them as fast as possible. But the application has many more goodies under its hood.
The computer scanning process takes less than a minute, while fixing them might exceed 10 minutes, depending on the number of problems and their nature.
AVG PC Tuneup can thus fix registry errors such as file associations, file extensions, help files, history lists, shortcuts and installed software, but also remove junk files and deal with fragmented files.
On the other hand, the ‘System Advisor’ tab comes with a bunch of useful advices on the way you could improve computer performance. For example, it recommended us during the test to disable administrative share and autorun, thus improving system security on two different fronts.
The resource usage section provides an overview over the way your computer resources are being used by the running processes, which means you can easily discover which of the apps need a bigger amount of CPU and memory.
Last but not least, the advanced tools tab comes with several new tools such as disk cleanup and defrag, duplicate remover, system tweaks and service optimizer, file recovery and shredder, Internet booster and history eraser.
AVG PC Tuneup works on a reasonable amount of computer resources, although it may eat up your CPU and RAM when trying to solve some of the detected problems.
But all in all, this seems to be one of the most efficient tools of its kind on the market and it will definitely meet your expectations.
