    As you know, friends, someone out there recommeded me to try out and use this tweaking program...but as usual...am very careful now and besides I already have been running TuneUp Utility2011 for many years on my pc without problem (I don't use its registry cleaner). But out of curiousity, I discovered that it has "some other" tools/things that are possibly or are not found on TuneUp Utility. :rolleyes:

    I has a feature to optimize RAM, but what get my attention was it has feature to Disable CPU usage detection. There are times my pc hangs/freezed due to high cpu usage. My RAM memory is 760MB and I think its just good enough for single core Pentium 4 2.4Ghz Windows XP SP3 system that was used mainly for surfing.

    Is it really safe to disable cpu usage detection? o_O

    Well, first of all, the RAM Idle feature is just a snake oil for me, best case does not help, worst case makes things slower by messing with Windows memory management. So I would say it does not matter what you do there, just would stop using the feature altogether personally. :p

    Unused RAM is useless.
