New TuneUp Utilities - Version 2011 optimizes all relevant performance-killers on Windows PCs - especially performance loss resulting from too many program installations
London, UK 28 October - TuneUp Utilities today announced the release of TuneUp Utilities - Version 2011, the newest release of its flagship product. The software provides complete performance optimisation of PCs, netbooks and notebooks running Windows 7, Vista, and XP. The most innovative new feature helps users to manage the major performance killer on Windows PCs: too many installed programs and their background functions, such as services and processes. The completely new TuneUp Program Deactivator(tm) is an alternative for uninstalling programs that are rarely used. The function turns off all components of the software that have a negative impact on the PC's performance. In combination with the improved TuneUp Turbo Mode and the proven TuneUp tools such as TuneUp 1-Click Maintenance or TuneUp Live Optimisation, TuneUp Utilities - Version 2011 guarantees full performance for working with the PC or gaming.
TuneUp Utilities - Version 2011 users won't have to worry about potential performance loss resulting from too many software installations. Thanks to the market's first Programs-on-Demand Technology(tm), users can now completely turn off third party programs instead of having to uninstall them. Services, startup entries, scheduled tasks or background processes the user does not require can be deactivated. So if the user requires the software again, it will be immediately reactivated with all its processes and functions. The computer doesn't waste resources for unneeded or rarely used programs, and the overall system load that grows with every installed program is drastically reduced. The PC is prevented from becoming sluggish as well as losing performance and stability due to the installation of countless programs, but the applications are still available on demand. The PC's security isn't affected by the new feature in any way, because security software and necessary drivers are excluded from deactivation by the TuneUp Program Deactivator.
For maximum transparency, the TuneUp Program Deactivator shows the load points in an overview and informs the user about the real or potential performance increase when starting, operating and shutting down the PC.
The rating function for third party programs, generated by the TuneUp users, gives an advice about the practicability of programs so that users can decide to turn them off or not. These rating functions are also delivered by the well-known tools such as the TuneUp Uninstall Manager and the TuneUp Startup Manager where startup entries can be rated.
Full performance for programs and games thanks to improved TuneUp Turbo Mode
Another TuneUp Utilities - Version 2011 highlight is the improved TuneUp Turbo Mode. The new version shuts down more than 70 performance hogs that slow down the system, generating full performance for a fluent gameplay or work. In contrast to TuneUp Program Deactivator, which is deactivating third party programs and software, TuneUp Turbo Mode concentrates on Windows services and tasks to ensure full performance of all applications the user needs. For example, the push of the button TuneUp Turbo Mode switches off Windows maintenance services, external devices connections or visual effects the user does not need for playing or working. When configuring the tool, the user can flexibly decide which functions TuneUp Turbo Mode should shut down and which not.
More transparency with the new Tuning Status and overview of all 32 TuneUp functions
The improved TuneUp Start Centre ensures a better overview, providing the new features "Tuning Status" and "Overview of all functions". The Tuning Status shows how many optimisation actions have already been performed and where additional tuning potential for programs and Windows exists. No matter what category the user visits, he can always see the Tuning Status.
The new Overview of all functions offers a fast view of both functions and settings in TuneUp Utilities - Version 2011. Especially professional users will consider that feature as very helpful for instant access to the 32 different TuneUp tools.
