    Thats bad software, take those guys - and MY word for it.

    Just by cCleaner Pro for 25 bucks, it's worth it. Or use the free version, which does not have the automatic cleaner so you have to manually run it once a week.

    Tell me like im 5 years old.

    Why is Tuneup bad? I used it YEARS ago and only just recently got it again. I did notice it wanted me to delete some things that seemed like it would be a stupid idea...backups etc.

    Too many reports about problems. Any tune up program can make damage in your system. Why take the risk. Just do it the traditional way. Then you know what you have done and can always backpaddle.

    I can't explain why a Virus is Virus or a Malware Program is a Malware Program, it just is. Because shortly after you install it, or maybe immediately, you start finding all kinds of new Babylon Search engines installed that you never asked for. TunePoop Pro was like this, it is fake Utility software with JUST enough actual usability to trick you into using it.

    The safest "Tune Up" program I got is cCleaner which is all I need.

    Any program that reads through your reg, and ends up deleting system files while making a HUGE backup of nothing, well I dont know what the hell it is doing, but it is bad.



    Actually I just checked this out, AVG makes it. Well, that ALMOST gives it a stamp of authentication, but it is just unnecessary software. I would stick with AVG AV and leave it at that.

    Maybe tunepoop pro had some kind of AV program built into it, or some kind of active scanning engine, but if it was creating 800 GB of Data, it's no good.
