TuneUp Utilities 2012 Review and Giveaway

TuneUp Utilities is a popular Windows PC Optimization software which needs no special introduction. Recently, TuneUp Utilities 2012 is released and it boasts to be the most powerful TuneUp Utilities of all time! This new version comes with few new features, loads of improvements and most importantly it carries all those good parts of its predecessor. In this article we’ll see how these new features work and thus giving an idea to those who already own TuneUp Utilities and are in a dilemma whether to upgrade it or not.

Tuneup Utilities 2012 Main Interface Screenshot

Last year we’ve reviewed TuneUp Utilities 2011 and many features which we discussed there are still valid with TuneUp Utilities 2012. So, we recommend you to read the review of TuneUp Utilities 2011. In this article we’ll be looking at new features only.

Improved Interface :

TuneUp Utilities 2012 looks almost same as 2011 version. No major changes are made to the interface, but there are some improvements. If you closely observe, you’ll see many wrench icons attached to buttons. These wrench icons will give you quick access to the settings of corresponding tools.

New Economy Mode Reduces Power Consumption :

TuneUp Utilities 2012 now has 3 Optimization modes.

  • Economy Mode
  • Standard Mode
  • Turbo Mode

Tuneup Utilities 2012 Optimization modes

2011 version has Turbo mode and Standard mode (even though it’s not explicitly mentioned). Economy mode is newly introduced in 2012 version and it’ll reduce power consumption considerably at the cost of PC performance. When you switch to Economy mode, power consumed by the processor will be reduced and hence performance will be degraded. Resource hungry processes will also be killed to reduce power consumption.

Settings of Economy mode in Tuneup Utilities 2012

Choose desired mode to finish setting up Economy mode

Here is a tabular comparison between different optimization modes and their affects on PC performance and power consumption.

Optimization Mode Performance Impact Power Consumption
Economy Mode Degraded Performance Low
Standard Mode Normal Normal
Turbo Mode Improved Performance High

Fully Automatic Program Deactivator :

How Tuneup Program Deactivator works in Tuneup Utilities 2012

Above picture clearly explains how TuneUp Program Deactivator works. I think this feature is very useful and to me this feature is the trump card of TuneUp Utilities 2012. Why because, on one side it prevents background services of a program from being started automatically and hence it speeds up the boot time. Secondly, when you run a disabled program TuneUp will dynamically start all those services which are required by that program to run properly and then disable them again on exiting the application.

With these wide range of features and optimization techniques, TuneUp Utilities 2012 looks very impressive. Indeed, TuneUp Utilities 2012 is the most powerful TuneUp Utilities ever and is worth the upgrade.

  13. pkghosh1 says:

    It’s a coincidence that I installed TuneUp Utilities 2011 Trial version on 15th and then saw this promotion.
    I have an old computer with Windows 7 and very many softwares. It had got quite slow and sluggish. There were some improvements after using various programs periodically to manage the system. The problem was to run each program individually in specific sequence to get the best of it.
    The first run of TuneUp Utilities was like magic and this last 7 days has been smooth sailing; only that the full version would be more automated. Now I have 8 days left to enjoy all these.
    TuneUp Utilities 2012 seems to be an improvement with newer facilities and automation. I wish I can get a license so that I don’t have to go back to the old ways after the current trial expires.
    Following you on twitter.
    Thank you,

    Hope i will one of it thanks for v12 techishare

  17. Azmi says:

    First of all I would like to thank Stephanie Jackman and Tech I Share for giving us the only chance to use this awesome system utilities for free. I cannot afford to lose this fantastic giveaway so I’m going to be honest as much as possible. I have TuneUp Utilities 2011 installed on my computer, I bought it over a year ago, and I’d say that TuneUp Utilities is the best system utilities I’ve ever used. In fact TuneUp utilities is by far the only program that successfully and effectively accelerate my system performance. Why do I need TuneUp Utilities 2012? Simply because it is the best system utility ever existed on earth. I’m not a tech expert, but but I can follow directions and get most things done. TuneUp Utilities do all the works for me, it is very easy to use and doesn’t require any real expertise so it’s great for beginners as well as for hardcore users.

    I’ve used TuneUp Utilities 2012 for two days after they sent me a newsletter containing the announcement of the release of newer version. The most significant improvement is probably the new economy mode, which allow me to get the best battery life possible by decreasing PC’s processor performance thus reducing energy consumption. Besides, program deactivator now works automatically in the background, which means one doesn’t have to manually deactivate any particular programs anymore. The rest are quite the same with the 2011 version, although the new interface did confuse me at first. I’m pretty sure they have fixed some minor problems as well as improved overview of all available functions.

    I would strongly recommend TuneUp Utilities 2012 for those who are looking for a simple software solution to optimize system performance. I’m not going to upgrade my TuneUp Utilities to the 2012 version so I would be very happy to win a free license. I have subscribed to your feedburner, followed you on twitter and liked your fan page on facebook. For your information, I have entered several similar giveaways on different websites in order to increase my chances to win TuneUp Utilities 2012, so I guess you would probably know how badly I need this great piece of software. May luck be with me. Thanks in advance.

I tried the 2012 and It is so much better updated and so much better than IObit Advance System Pro. i had to uninstall that program. Win-Utilities is okay for some things, same as Glary’s Utilities. All of the above can be used as a free program, but you will know the difference. That’s why you get what you pay for. Tune-Up 2012 is worth the money. I just don’t have any. Please give me a license.
