[CC] Free TuneUp Utilities 2010!

Everyone has heard of TuneUp Utilities, there is no need to introduce it. All I want to say is that everyone can get TuneUp Utilities 2010 (TuneUp Utilities 2011 costs $49.95, or $24.95 if you install it then uninstall it while it is in trial) for free!

    @Stephen Cohen:

    @ Stephen Cohen – no brainer: your harddisk is either corrupt OR your file system is due to too long no chckdsk.

    Start elevated command prompt (cmd) and type:
    chkdsk c: /f /v /x /r

    Enter and reboot.

    Then again elevated cmd,
    chkdsk c: /f /v /x

    Enter and reboot.

    After that, again elevated cmd, this time you type
    sfc /scannow

    Then you can safely run TU 2010.

    Good luck!

    WARNING!!! I used the 2009 version automatic 1-click maintenance without problems. However the 2010 1-click maintenance caused major problems. If you install the 2010 version, IMMEDIATELY go to the maintenance section and disable at least the disk defragmenter. Personally, I disabled a lot more.

    I cannot be sure, but I believe that the disk defragmenter:
    1) Corrupted my GoBack program, probably by invading its hidden “safe” partition. It took hours to fix and I permanently lost some material.
    2) Defragments even when there is very little fragmentation on the disk.
    3) Is EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY slow.

    @MikeR,
    thank you for your suggestions. I have WinPatrol payed version, AnVir and maybe 2 or other ones that could accomplish this “TASK”, not mentioning MsConfig, but that was not what I was expecting from a win utilities utility! Previous versions all had a “don’t run at windows startup” option in their settings. It seems this one doesn’t.
    Just a short note : I started working with PC when they were not called PC’s yet – it was an Apple II Plus, circa 1979, so I know one or two things about computers.
    thanks

    Hi Ashraf,

    Your “Download link” is currently for the GB (Great Britain) version. I don’t know if that version is different from the US version… :-)

    A direct download link for the US version is:
    http://download.tune-up.com/TUU2010/TU2010TrialEN-US.exe

    Or people can use one of these non-direct methods:
    http://www.tune-up.com/download/archive/tuu2010/
    http://www.tune-up.com/download/getfile.php?file=tuu2010trial

    And of course, Ashraf fans don’t forget to go to the “Promotion/registration page” to get your activation link and then product key.

    Thanks, Ashraf!

    @Mario: Not wishing to be sniffy about this Mario, but if you’re not sure how to stop a program from auto-starting, you may be at risk of exceeding your computer experience / expertise by entrusting your laptop or PC to *any* so-called optimisation suite — and especially, one which includes a registry cleaner. Anyway. To solve your immediate problem: of all the countless startup managers out there, I still find the freeware WinPatrol the best. Just DL it and go to the startup tab, then disable WinUtilities (though ironically, a utilities suite which *doesn’t* have a start-up manager of its own isn’t worth bothering with anyway, i.e.: you should be able to use WinUtilities to stop WinUtilities from auto-starting.) There are rare cases where apps have been said to auto-start even after being disabled — well, at least according to Internet posters — though that’s never happened to me. If it did, I’d uninstall the app pronto: it’s *my* computer, not the property of some software developer or other.

    Hi Ashraf,
    by any chance do you know how to TURN OFF automatic start up of TUNEUP Utilities with windows? I want it to be an on demand utility. ( sorry for double posting. Previous note was incorrect)
    tks

    This might be a problem at my end, but when I click the link for the promotion/registration page I get the following error:

    Hmmm just noticed that the title of the tab (in Chrome) says “TuneUp Deutschland” – could it be that the site is filtering based on IP, and restricting access to the promo page to those whose IP is registered in the promo country? (which is…?)

    Mr. Boss

    I looked at this promotion and it may or may not be a paid-magazine specific freebie. Obviously it is being run by ComputerShopper (http://computershopper.com/) and TuneUp Utilities, but I cannot tell if it is a paid-magazine specific freebie or not. Typically I wouldn’t allow these types of freebies (dotTech has as strict policy of “if in doubt, don’t post it”). However, I have talked with a few developers and it seems that some developers don’t care if freebies are leaked because the freebies serve as free advertisement for them (in this case free advertisement for TuneUp Utilities 2011). Now I haven’t talked to the developer of TuneUp Utilities about this, so if they contact me and ask me to pull this freebie I will, but for now it feels kind of refreshing to walk the fine line. Bad boy Ashraf is in town. Enjoy this while it lasts.
