Would you kindly please help me take a look at those tests you know of? Where can I find them?
Since you asked ... see the link below: Does TuneUp Utilities 2012 Improve PC Performance? | Gadget Advisor
Notice the part where they say:
The answer to the big question is no. The app doesn’t improve PC performance. The results are minimal despite our best efforts to replicate all tests before and after running TuneUp Utilities 2012. This isn’t a surprise because this is often the case with most optimization apps.
The last line reflects the experience that lots of folks have had using these kinds of utilities.
However ... that said, there are quite a few Positive reviews of this utility out there, so in the balance, it may do some good, after all.
