No, coming from an ex-TuneUp user. TuneUp completely messed up my PC.

Same answer I gave yesterday.

Can also lead to you posting in the Crashes and Debugging section "What happened to my system?"

Tweaked to death by registry damage.

So by all means yes. Use two or three. They must be all opened and run at the same time for the full effect.

Welcome to sevenforums first off.

The Windows Defragger and Disk Clean Up is more than sufficient to keep Windows 7 running at peak efficiency.

With XP some of the software such as CCleaner were of benefit with that OS.

They just aren't needed and many will cause registry errors instead of fixing them.
Most are sales gimmicks to get you to buy the retail version.

I went a little overboard about running 3 of them just to mess with ARG a bit.

It messed up my drive. Instead of defragmenting it, it fragmented it and also made it un-formatable to a great extent. Thought to give 2011 a try, it screwed up my icons right after the installation.

I don't require the use of any of these packages. As others have said and I agree with, many actually cause more problems than what they solve.
