Windows 7: Tune-Up Utilities 2010 Key Issue

Again, as stated, you need to ensure the folder where you installed it to is gone. Delete temp files and do a registry search, using regedit. Lots of programs leave lots of registry entries behind when you un-install a program. Sometimes hundreds of entries and they all need to go before you re-install.

Hi Lozneo!
Really TuneUp is a great application... I mean a lot of application. Your case is really sad. As far as I remember, When I installed the program in my computer, it wanted a serial key or proceed trial. So for a fresh installation, this dialog may be obtained again.

Uninstall the program using Revo uninstaller (free; removes all leftover information including registry). Then reinstall it again; give the serial at the first chance, and get registered. I hope it may solve the issue.

@pweegar: Suppose I should have told you more. My bad. Someone else suggested that to me earlier in this thread, and so I did that each and every time I uninstalled the program. That's why I was really confused about it still not working, because I know I got rid of everything in the registry and the temp folders. As for the folder it was installed to, I hadn't thought of checking that out but I'm pretty sure it went. If that's the reason it's not working properly I'll kick myself.

@Arc: Cheers for that. I agree, it's a good program and I would like it to work. I might give that a go and see if it works for me. I'll let you know though.

Lozneo,
I would also suggest that you download, install, and run any kind of registry cleaner that you like. I use ccleaner on occassion. It may find entries that you have no idea what they are, may be left by any number of programs. Also, are you trying to install the very latest version? Have you went to their web site and looked around? Maybe try downloading the program again and then install ut.

@pweegar: I regularly use CCleaner, that's the registry cleaner I used to get rid of all associated things. Really good program. And yeah, I am trying to install the latest version - the 2010 one, not sure of the version number - simply because that's the only one that works properly on Windows 7. =/ So this whole situation is a bit confusing. There really shouldn't be anything stopping me from installing it and using my key and having a full version...

@Arc: Thanks for the suggestion! I finally have Tune-Up Utilities working correctly (for now). Revo Uninstaller was a fantastic suggestion - it got rid of all the stuff I wasn't able to get rid of the first million times around. Hopefully this works properly now. I only have to wait 30 days to find out...

Sadly, it took less than 30 days. In fact, I think it took about 43 minutes. *Apparently* my trial period has expired. AGAIN. Any more ideas? Revo was a great one - I'll keep that program. But Tune-Up Utilities is driving me mad.

Firstly, that program is an unnecessary rip-off - use disk cleanup and clean out the %TMP% yourself and use sageset to schedule the task. If you paid for it, get a refund.

Okay, thanks for your opinion... I did ask people not to tell me to use a different program, but I guess I can handle it once or twice.

Well, just so you know (in case you haven't read the whole thread) I have used CCleaner countless times to clean out the temp folders, the registry and my hard drive, to no effect (on a side note, I also use disk cleanup, though I feel it doesn't work as well). It *still* thinks that I have a trial key, and that I need to get a new one. As for sagesets, thanks for the recommendation but I run cleaner programs enough that I don't feel I need to set it up so one runs automatically. I don't feel it would change anything, really.

What makes you say that it is an unnecessary rip-off? It works for me. I like what it does and how it does things, but I guess everyone is different.

*sigh*

This is why I hate these 3rd rate software programs that you can install for free but they have no or limited removal tools tot remove the garbage after you find out is is C!%~. The answer then is to check and ask other before you install FREE NO NAME software on your computer.
My 2 Cents.
