TuneUp Utilities 2008 Meets Windows Vista Certification Requirements

Windows Optimization Product Suite Available for Free 30-Day Trial Download

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - Like the 2007 version, TuneUp Utilities® 2008 now meets all of the requirements for Windows Vista certification. The tuning software provides Windows Vista users with a user-friendly and powerful solution for automatic maintenance and complete customization of Windows. The official "Certified for Vista" logo demonstrates the superior quality and reliability of TuneUp's Windows optimization product suite.

Designed with an intuitive, user-friendly interface, TuneUp Utilities 2008 gives both novice and advanced PC users access to a powerful toolbox in a single software solution. PC owners can perform automatic PC maintenance, adapt Windows settings to their personal preferences, ensure peak system performance, utilize a host of advanced tuning options and more.

"We pay particular attention to quality when developing our tuning products," said Tibor Schiemann, one of the inventors and co-founders of TuneUp. "This is extremely important in order to avoid damaging the operating system, as PC tuning suites can alter settings at very sensitive and vulnerable areas of the system. Our product is designed to keep your machine operating optimally throughout its life span, and while everyone immediately recognizes the user interface as intuitive and user-friendly, the high technical quality of the software behind it is not as obvious. Only Certified for Windows Vista® software and devices have undergone Microsoft compatibility tests for ease of use, better performance and enhanced security on PCs running the Windows Vista operating system."

A free 30-day trial version of TuneUp Utilities 2008 is available for download at The full version can be purchased for $49.95, and upgrades from previous versions can be downloaded for $29.95.
