    NEW! TuneUp Disk Cleaner 2013: Wipes system clutter from over 150 popular programs
    NEW! TuneUp Browser Cleaner 2013: Cleans up 25 browsers
    MORE POWERFUL! TuneUp Registry Cleaner & TuneUp Shortcut Cleaner
    NEW! TuneUp Live Optimization 2.0: Boosts performance of applications

    http://www.tune-up.com/products/tuneup-utilities/features/

    I upgraded immediately. I think the new Disk Cleaner is awesome and the Live Optimazation tells you wich processes are the most resource hungry.

    What's your opinion about the new version?

    Enjoy the snake oil, CCleaner has a simpler interface and more customizable to add custom folders to clean out :rolleyes:

    If you honestly think that running TuneUp Utilities will speed up your pc noticeable then I have some swamp land to sell you in Florida. 95% of what any tune up software does you can do yourself. It just packs it all into one neat package for convince. Programs like these are kind of a scam. They make noob pc users think that if they buy this it will make there pc like new. Anyone every see that TV commercial for "Finally Fast.com"? Same thing. You download and install this program then run it. It does some disk cleanup and optimizes your start up. Then it gives you an overall grade and how much it improved your pc. The noob user says "Wow...............I am going to buy this. Look what it did for my pc". Whatever. The sad thing is that once all the tweaks and optimizing is done you now have a $50 version of CCleaner. :rolleyes:

    Yeah i know but it warns you if you want to clean important files. Passwords from browser, more Flash player data that contains saved games for flash games etc.

    But CCleaner is just a cleaner not a tweaking program. That is why i use Tune Up for over 3 years now. I like the economy mode on my notebook, i like that i can create a profile and it will guide me what should i disable or change(based on what i want, maximum performance or to keep the shiny Windows GUI). Not as agressive as IObit Advanced SystemCare but still effective. I also like that at the startup programs i see how important is to disable or not because every user can rate it.

    Funny thing is I haven't used CCleaner in several years. Just my preference.

    I've stopped using tools such as TuneUp Utilities and the like,
    not at all needed anymore. (If they were ever)
    But some may find them useful.

    Ccleaner didn't do that much for me so I stopped using it.

    CCleaner is not a tuneup program. Its a history,cookie and temp file cleaner mainly. But through the years it has a start up manager and a registry cleaner. If you simply Google "How to tweak Windows" you will find everything that TuneUp can do for you. There is not a tweaking program out there that can do things for you that you cannot do yourself or is already built into Windows.

    Windows disk cleanup, Windows defragmenter and MSCONFIG are enough in most cases...

    Exactly...............Back in the XP days tweaking your services gained you some performance. But back then the average pc had 512MB of ram or 1GB at the most. Now with core i processors and 4GB of memory standard that is not necessary. If TuneUp Utilities was $10 I would buy it. Also here is food for thought..............TuneUp runs 2 additional processes. So how can a program that adds processes suppose to speed up your pc? Very contradicting if you ask me. Like those memory optimizers. Buy more ram instead. Here is some advice. Download TuneUp Utilities 2013. Run it and apply the tweaks it recommends. Reboot and uninstall it. You will still have the optimizations it gave you. Wise Care 365 is 100% free and can do the same.

    CCleaner is a must have for 3rd party browsers like Chrome and Firefox. Manage cookies and delete temp files and the cache. If using IE, you can get away with the onboard W7 tools.

    True. I would also add Task Scheduler, for those pesky programs which choose to run at startup as a scheduled task, instead of using the run section of the registry.

    CCenhancer tends to slow down the overall performance of CCleaner. Tested on various machines.
