TuneUp Utilities 2009 Meets Windows Vista Certification Requirements

Windows Optimization Product Suite Supports 32 and 64 Bit Operating Systems

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 3, 2009) - Like the 2007 and 2008 versions, TuneUp Utilities 2009 now meets all of the requirements for Microsoft's Windows Vista certification. The tuning software provides Windows users with a powerful software solution for automatic maintenance and complete customization of their PCs. The official "Certified for Windows Vista" logo demonstrates the superior quality, reliability and compatibility of TuneUp's Windows optimization product suite.

Officially launched in December 2008, TuneUp Utilities 2009 takes an intelligent approach, analyzing the configuration of individual PCs to determine the best tuning measures to perform based on a user's specific requirements. The software makes it possible for users to optimize their computers with minimal effort, while maintaining complete control over any system interventions. TuneUp Utilities 2009 supports Windows XP and Vista (32 or 64 bit); by automatically adapting to a PC's operating system, it offers Windows XP users the safety of continued use when migrating to Windows Vista.

"There are 'black sheep' among Windows optimization tools on the market. These unprofessional options can cause more harm to PCs with overeager tasks rather than finding a solution to the original problem," said Tibor Schiemann, president and managing partner, TuneUp. "We work closely with Microsoft to provide our customers with software they can trust to safely and selectively optimize their Windows operating system. We are pleased that our flagship product has once again successfully passed all of the Windows Vista certification requirements."

A free 30-day trial version of TuneUp Utilities 2009 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. Users who purchase a single product license are able to install the software on up to three computers. TuneUp Utilities 2009 is also available via the retail channel in the United States.
