Yes it works.
I tried it but uninstalled it shortly because everything that tu2010 gives for customization I just done that manually.
But is as great utility.

+1 I'm using as a utility right now, its customization suite.... is less then it could be
Though it has a really helpful function called "Turbo Mode" Which stops a bunch of un-necessary services and other things,it's great for games/multimedia

I've been using it also. I'm not too happy with the interface but the various tools work pretty well.

So use your own pictures. There's an option to create your own logon screen with the button "Create new" in the Tune-Up Styler (see attached image), using pictures on your hard drive - ie wallpapers and such like.

I use Tune-Up Utilities - it's great, works fantastic on Windows 7. The only issue I really have with it is the non-Windows theming, and the fact that it isn't obvious where to enter the key for it! I originally installed a trial version and found I really liked it. I went and got a key for it, and tried desperately to find out where to enter it so that the notifications would stop popping up telling me my trial was running out. No luck. Reinstalled, hoping I could enter it during the installation - no luck again. The trial installer didn't even give me the option to enter my key! Anybody got any idea how on earth to enter the key for it??

But yeah, Tune-Up Utilities is a great program.

Very good utility program. BUT there's a lot to review and to see. Here are some problems with it.

Turbo Mode is not as special as you think it is, you can get a similar result by downloading Game Booster, dehabilitating all visual effects in system properties, and by killing svchost process with Task Manager.

For Live Optimizer, here's the problem:

You are playing a game, then you suddenly need to open a folder to look for something quick. Live Optimizer will degrade the priority of your game, by giving it to your folder, which you are not needing, hence, giving less throttle to your game.

For last, but not least. Speeding the Startup Program, at the beginning isn't as recommended as you think.

Here's why:

When you boot your computer as you normally do, the Live Optimization (LO) will start to put all of those background processes, 1 by 1 to "below normal" in the priority. But, have you ever thought about the amount of memory and energy used by the LO to optimize each startup?

I've done some tests on Assassins Creed I, having the game booster on got 3 FPS more than With Turbo Mode.

HEY, with this I don't say TU2010 is bad. For the contrary, I'm saying that you need to be careful when using those applications, since they are a 2 edge sword, which when you want to optimize you are going to be "Tuning Down" your computer.

>.< Hope this helped.
