I have been hearing that this program has some pretty good tools, its 49.95 so it would be an investment. What does it really do that I cant get from freeware though? Has anyone ever tried this product? Whats your review?

I have used TuneUp Utilities 2008 as a mater of fact I have used every version since 2003. I'm using the trail version of 08 right now, and it pretty much keeps in line with the versions before it. Is a suite of about 20 different utilities. It has a nice interface, and is easy to work with. That being said I find myself only using 2-3 of these utilities. I have already found Diskeeper to be the best defrag program for me, and Ccleaner to be a good all around cleaning program. I also use NT Reg optimizer for the registry. I have found these little freeware apps to be as good or in most cases better that the ones in TuneUp Utilities. If you have to have all of your programs together and you like the way these work by all means give it a shot. I do think its a bit over priced for what you get. Another good all in one is a program called System cleaner 5.

I was an adent fan of Tune Up Utilities 2007, I D/L the trial of 2008 but i fount it was more or less the same, since then I have found Some freeware tools just as good and in some cases better.

Tried that one also. Found the interface to not be as good as Tune Up Utilities, and its slow at least for me.

Are these freeware or purchased tools available so they can be used on other computers besides your own?

I have used Tune-Up utilities 2007 and found that it increases the performance of my machine rather well.
