New version of tuning classic TuneUp Utilities™ hits the shelves

TuneUp Utilities™ is a name computer users have come to trust. As you’d expect, the 2012 version of this classic tuning suite can fix a range of problems that put a brake on the performance of your PC, such as freeing it from data clutter, while packing a few surprises along the way. The new Economy Mode feature included in TuneUp Utilities™ 2012, for example, helps save electricity when using a PC and extend the battery life of notebooks and netbooks.

The most important new feature in TuneUp Utilities™ 2012 is TuneUp Economy Mode. With just a click of the mouse, it can throttle down resource-hungry components such as the processor and LCD screen, or turn off devices completely. The result? Desktop PCs use less power, while netbooks and notebooks are gifted with a longer battery life – up to 30% longer, compared to the results obtained with energy-saving options included with Windows® 7. The benefits are not just evident when you’re on the road: by using less power, the hardware of any PC will simply last longer. Among the features to receive an overhaul in this latest version of the suite is TuneUp’s popular Program Deactivator. In TuneUp Utilities™ 2012, it can even work automatically, reducing the burden placed on Windows® by installed programs to a minimum. TuneUp’s Programs-on-Demand Technology™ can put autostart entries, services and scheduled program tasks to sleep if they are not currently being used, reducing CPU and hard disk activity and freeing up working memory. If the user decides to launch a "sleeping" application, TuneUp Utilities™ 2012 simply takes care of the task automatically. And as soon as the user terminates the application, TuneUp Program Deactivator turns off all its active components, giving Windows® back that “just installed” feeling. The tried-and-tested features of this tuning classic, first introduced in 1997, are here in this latest version with an updated design. Important components such as TuneUp Program Deactivator, Economy Mode and Automatic Maintenance are displayed together in a single window. Such improvements help to make TuneUp Utilities™ 2012 much more user-friendly, meaning fewer clicks and faster access to essential Windows® tools. And TuneUp Utilities™ 2012 comes with over 30 of those, including a hard-disk cleaner, defragmenter, uninstall tool, registry optimiser and 1-Click Maintenance to streamline the operation of Windows® and tidy up the operating system and hard disk. In addition, TuneUp Utilities™ 2012 can fix frequently occurring PC problems, recover deleted files and adjust the appearance of Windows® to suit the user’s taste. Numerous tips and assistants are included with TuneUp Utilities™ 2012 to enable even inexperienced users to get the most out of their PC. Tuning Status, for example, shows at a glance how well optimised a PC is and what potential remains for further improvement. Live Optimization automatically speeds up work with the program currently being used, preventing resource-hungry background processes from putting a brake on performance. Active applications are awarded top priority in the allocation of processor resources, while background programs remain just that – in the background. The Turbo Mode included in TuneUp Utilities™ 2012 works in a similar way, guaranteeing top performance for games, programs and Windows® with just a single click. For gamers, that means no more judders or jerks. Turbo Mode achieves this by shutting down over 70 factors known to hinder Windows® performance, including background processes and third party software, enabling the system to focus processor and memory resources on the application currently being used. No doubt about it, in this latest incarnation, TuneUp Utilities™ remains a must-have program for the harassed PC user. The new features included with TuneUp Utilities™ 2012, such as Economy Mode, are welcome additions to what was already an extensive tuning toolbox. Improved performance, less energy consumption, a more streamlined Windows® setup and PC in top shape – all this and more becomes possible with TuneUp Utilities™ 2012
