Major Geeks Reviews TuneUp Utilities 2004

Quote from the review at Major Geeks:

“TuneUp Utilities 2004 comes to us from TuneUp Software GmbH in Frankfurt, Germany. They previously had other versions of this software dating back to 1997 selling over 300,000 copies of TuneUp 97 alone. This was followed by TuneUp Utilities 2003. This latest version can correct problems, customize, optimize and even tell you what hardware is installed on your computer.

The interface of the program is attractive and easy to navigate using a familiar XP look.
There are 5 categories to the program, Customize & Analyze, Clean up & Repair, Optimize & Improve, Administer & Control and File recovery & Destruction. Each of these categories offers 2-4 different subcategories to choose from. Each category opens a small welcome window (which can be shut off) that explains what that section does. This is a great feature for someone unfamiliar with drive cleaning or registry defrag, for example. There is also a Rescue Center that allows you to reverse changes made with the program. The restore is broken into categories and dates and you can select which items to monitor for backup. All are enabled by default. An update wizard is also available to update your program online. Finally, for the main interface, there are links to the TuneUp Utilities 2004 website, support and program options. A nice feature of the program options allows you to make installation changes to the program. For example, if you wanted shortcut icons on the desktop and did not add them, you can change that in the options.”
