Tune Up Utilities 2009 GiveawayToday's giveaway is TuneUp Utilities 2009, delivering comprehensive, simple and fast PC optimization, used easily by even novice computer users - one retail box version, which can be used on up to three computers - value $50.00.

As soon as I set up the TuneUp Utilities software into my laptop, it told me about three network problems that was leaving me open to hackers, and I was able to fix all three problems with just one click.

TuneUp Start pageNext it suggested I do an analysis of my system - I could choose from Normal, which will check my system for errors and Thorough, which will also locate any bad sectors & recover any readable info.

Let's start with Normal... Well, that took just three minutes and found no errors!

OK, next it wanted me to check & optimize my speed... A quick questionnaire and it came up with 23 recommendations. It will speed up my online searches, speed up my load time and my start up menu, as well as optimizes my performance.

TuneUp Speed OptimizerNext I thought I would clean up any unnecessary disk files... It found 681 unnecessary files and backups. Cleaning that up gained me 15.59 GBs. Wow!

Next let's check the TuneUp Disk Space Explorer... Interesting to see where my storage is going! I love how easy it is to fix, clean or correct each problem.

There is so much more to this program, and it is so simple to use! While I am an experienced computer user, Rob has just become computer literate in the past few years, and he found it simple to use as well. When he ran the TuneUp Utilities in his computer, he found 575 problems in his programs, 4 problems in his Desktop and Quick Launch Bar, and 25 problems with his Start Menu. (We've been telling him he needs to clean up his Start Menu!)

In his temporary files, he was able to free up 39 MB of space - so not as bad as mine! He thought it was a great tool for a novice computer user.
