This week TuneUp launched the latest version of its award-winning series of PC optimization software, TuneUp Utilities 2010. One of the key updates to the 2010 version is its compatibility with Windows 7–maximizing the new operating system’s performance. The 2010 version still supports the 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows XP and Vista.
Other new features include
- TuneUp Turbo Mode, which allows users to temporarily disable unnecessary background functionalities of Windows and popular programs—with a single click—to reduce program interruptions and increase frames per second (FPS) in games.
- TuneUp Live Optimization, which monitors and prevents background programs from using up too much of the PC’s resources, and improves programs’ startup and response times, even when the computer is bogged down with a number of applications running simultaneously.
- TuneUp Automatic Maintenance, which starts only when the PC is not being actively used, so programs are not slowed down or interrupted. This also helps save and increase battery life, as the tool will not start if laptops and netbooks are being run on battery power.
TuneUp Utilities 2010 is now available for download at www.tune-up.com/download and as a retail box in stores. The software, which can be used on up to three computers, costs $49.95, and users of previous versions can upgrade for a discounted price of $29.95. A free, fully-functional 15-day trial is also available for consumers.
