2gb - 4mb = 2gb

Running TU 2013 and it is definitely NOT only 4mb. I found that it had almost 20 programs "opitmized" - which means partially loaded - for quick start, etc. So, you need to adjust your little math formula to:

2gb - (4mb + 20P) = who the hell really knows

This is especially true when I run msconfig and there is no option what-so-ever for Tuneup. Neither is there one in the standard "startup" options. How the hell it is loading and running but not being in either place is interesting voodoo.

The Task Manager option is nice IF you only want to shut it down for one session, but it comes right back at next start up, loading itself and who knows what all.

I am running 3rd gen i7, in maybe 2 or 3 programs what used to take 5 seconds now takes 4.3 seconds but for most programs what took 5 seconds now takes 6. I flat out don't need their "optimization". The problem is, I really like their utilites, how well they work, organization, etc. Thats all I want, and I don't need it in memeory "right now" if I only use it once a week.

I payed $1000 for the laptop, it is mine, not theirs. It pisses me off that they rig programs that takes over ownership of peoples computers. And most people don't even care. It's fine if you are young, dumb, and still used to mommy & daddy telling you what to do. I don't need that thanks.

TLDR; This is still an issue for some - a real solution would be great, other than "just uninstall it"

I don't know exactly how 2013 works, but for 2012, it creates a bunch of services and sets them to automatic startup. You may be able to disable them from there so they stop from running.
The only problem is that as soon as you run TuneUp again, it seems to reenable those to automatic again on its own.

To put it simple using clean English. Windows 7 does not want or need a Tuneup program of any kind. There are some suggestions from our Tutorials that might help.
