TuneUp Utilities Meets the "Compatible with Windows 7" Logo Requirements

Windows Optimization Software Suite Supports 32- and 64-Bit Operating Systems

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - February 17, 2010) - Windows optimization software developer TuneUp Corporation today announced that TuneUp Utilities 2010 meets all of the requirements for Microsoft Corp.'s "Compatible with Windows 7" logo. The latest version of the utilities software suite, which also supports Windows XP and Windows Vista, and can be run on both 32- and 64-bit operating systems, was designed to make PC maintenance even easier for both novice and professional computer users.

Key Product Features

  • TuneUp Turbo Mode allows users to temporarily disable unnecessary background processes, such as various Windows services, complex search functions and scheduled maintenance tasks, that are not needed -- with a single click.
  • TuneUp Live Optimization monitors and prevents background programs from using up too much of the PC's resources. It helps improve programs' startup and response times, even when the computer is bogged down with a number of applications running simultaneously.
  • The Automatic Maintenance feature is designed to start only when the PC is not being actively used; programs are not slowed down or interrupted. To save and increase battery life, the tool will not start if laptops and netbooks are being run on battery power.
  • TuneUp Utilities 2010 provides Windows 7 and Windows Vista users with a desktop gadget, which displays the PC's health and provides direct access to the functions needed to fix problems or increase the system's performance.
