you want to tell me to uninstall tuneup utilities 2010???

Why ?

Its not true that win 7 dont needs any tuneup programs because it found many registry problems and cleaned them up, so why do you mean thy windows 7 dont needs any tuneup programs?

Registry cleaners used on Windows 7 are very likeky to damage the registry.
If this happens Windows 7 may have to be reinstalled.

On Windows XP they were very nice to keep things working properly.

I don't trust any of the registry cleaners on Win 7. If you consider you must use a registry cleaner the Ccleaner is the only one considered safe by many on this forum.
Free and available here.

Piriform - Download CCleaner, Defraggler, Recuva, Speccy - Millions of users worldwide!

I also beleive the comment about "Snake Oil" was imprudent, unhelpful and rude.

That is my point.

I suggest you not use one at all.
Your decision though.
If your not having problems with the current one that is fine.
Just be aware it might cause a problem not that it will.

I think your RAM is fine. More would be nice when you can.

The problem with registry cleaners are that they need to essentialy "guess" at what they are doing.
You really do not want something guessing at what to delete do you?

Just because it says its a bad entry, doesnt mean it is.


If you start looking through exactly what its wanting to delete, you will find many references to legit keys of software you have installed and use.
And probably many you dont know what they are, which are best left alone.

Bottom line is, cleaning the registry will not give you any more performance, nor will it hurt performance by leaving it alone.
The only thing it does do is potentially cause problems, not solve them.

However, if you want to clean leftover keys from software you uninstall, the best method is with REVO Uninstaller.
It will only delete the leftover reg. keys of the application you just uninstalled.

All other keys should be left alone.

I am already planing to buy more RAM.

What about this program : Memory Improve Master Free Version - free memory, improve memory, memory optimizer

@ Wishmaster

Have you ever tried TuneUp utilities 2010 ?? Of no, how can you say this....
This app is prefect and it is like the brother to windows 7. They harmony. There are no keys that it deletes when you don't want that and it describes in detalis what the key is and witch apps are using it.

These are programs only good if you want to throw away money.

Upgrading your hardware from 2GB --> 4GB will be far more beneficial.

All these programs that say they Improve performance etc are only after your money, and seldom ever actually do any good.


When you are looking to improve performance of your machine, theres simply no software out there that can over come the limits of the hardware.


Windows 7 actually has excellent Memory Management, IF you let it do its thing and do not try to alter it.

I'm inclined to agree with Layback Bear about not needing any tuneup programs running in Windows 7, but others will swear by them so... But I personally don't use any tweak or tune-up programs on my systems.

Sometimes those tweaks/tune-up utilities can disable/disrupt systems/services that may not seem like much now, but can have an impact down the road.

As to memory usage, as everyone has pointed out, it's normal. The longer your system is running and the more programs your system uses, the more memory gets used. This is normal for any system.

My two cents.

Personally I think those tools promise a lot but give you nothing in the end.
Windows 7 optimizes on its own quite well.

Just my opinion but with your equipment you should be good for a long time.
Extra Ram will be a plus.

I thank you all for your answers and you help.

I have another question but It has nothing to do with this topic
