    TuneUp Automatic Maintenance - is it a reputable program?

    TuneUp came together with some other program that I installed. It pops up every time I open the computer. I thought maybe it was a useless program and I should delete it, but it seems like similar to virus removing program. Should I go ahead and click on "Run Maintenance"?

    Should I go ahead and click on "Run Maintenance"?

    Most of the items are relatively harmless but the registry cleaner is not. Registry cleaners have few benefits and generally cause more problems than they solve. They are of some value when used by an expert to solve a specific problem. But most people who use them have only a vague idea of what the registry is and in such hands they can be dangerous.

    I don't have a very high opinion of these one click optimizers. I would never use one.
