Hello All

Looking for some input on a utility called Tune-Up Utilities 2009 and 1-Click Tune-Up. I recently was infected by a number of nasty viruses and I believe I have finally cleaned up my computer. However, as result a lot of settings were changed etc. I found out about this utility and got the free version and am hesitant about using it. I like the fact that it is basically a fire and forget application that makes changes for me after a scan, as I am not that saavy when it comes to some of the more intricate settings of my system. However, when i runs a scan and finds problems I am hesitant about letting it make whatever changes it wants to, especially in the registry. I guess my question is: should I trust that whatever changes this utility wants to make are needed and beneficial.

Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can give.

I've been using Tune-Up Utilities for several years and have had no problems with it. It hasn't adversely affected my computer in any way.
This is one of my "must have" programs.

IF you decide to purchase the program, wait until the 30 day trial is almost over.
You may get an email offering a discount to purchase.

Good to know. I think this might be a good investment.
