I don't want to be rude, but i was confused by the post about Tune-up 2013, Wise Care 360, Advanced SystemCare 6 and iolo System Mechanic 11. I don't know which is good and which is bad.:huh:
I was just wondering can you give me your opinion on which softwere has the best optimization performance results.

What i'm trying to say is which softwere is THE BEST. Also don't hesitate to write who is the bad among these programs.:)

I currently use TuneUp Utilities 2013 and it's the best in my opinion. :)

I don't like any of this products because they all run constantly in the background......Cleaning my temp file,defragging and other system settings are performed by free separate software (Ccleaner + Auslogics disk defrag) which I run whenever I have the extra time...
Apart from the extra process, I also don't like to pay for something that free software can do easily and in some cases better.

I've tried TuneUp Utilities 2013 and it's a good program and back in the XP days it might been helpful, however my Windows 7 runs perfectly fine without the need to PAY for a maintainance software.
With that in mind, I guess that your at the point when you really think that some tweaks and defrag can do what your hardware should do....Been there ,done that.....If I were you I would start with Advanced SystemCare 6 ONLY because it's a free software...

Quick question : What exactly are you expecting any of this software to do for you?

i agree with Jack, why pay for a "maintenance" suite when you can do it manually or with free tools.

if i have to pay for one (almost impossible ) i will use Windows 7 Manager.

It would be like telling people not to use defragment softwares like PerfectDisk 12 or Diskeeper 2012.

With modern computers as we use today the benefits given by defragmentation is very small, even unnoticeable.

Perfect Disk will give you a small gain negated right away by a useless process running in the background and at boot.

For temp files, Ccleaner is enough (and more with CcEnhancer)

What operating system are you running?
What antivirus program are you running?

Here are just a few quick tips on how to increase your computer speed:

  1. Uninstall unnecessary programs - Here is how: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Uninstall-or-change-a-program
  2. Disable programs to run at Windows startup - Many programs are designed to start automatically when Windows starts. Software manufacturers often set their programs to open in the background, where you can't see them running, so they'll open right away when you click their icons. That's helpful for programs you use a lot, but for programs you rarely or never use, this wastes precious memory and slows down the time it takes Windows to finish starting up.
    Decide for yourself if you want a program to run at startup. You can use this program to easily disable or enable programs to start when Windows starts : http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/startuplite/
  3. Remove Temporary Files - You can use this software : http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
  4. Improve performance by defragmenting your hard disk. You can use this software : http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/disk-defrag/
  5. Check your hard disk for errors - Here is how: http://windows.microsoft.com/is-IS/windows-vista/Check-your-hard-disk-for-errors
  6. Check for missing or corrupted system files - To use System File Checker, press the Windows logo key + the R key together. Then type sfc /scannow in the box and click OK.
  7. Turn off visual effects (Windows 7) - Right-click on the desktop and choose Personalize from the menu,then you can simply scroll the themes down until you see the Basic themes.

Windows 7 Disk Defragmenter is by default set to run every week so their isn't even the real need for another 3-rd party software. I really can't remember when was the last time I've run Auslogics Disk Defrag Free (no real need on Windows 7)...

ask yourself:

will you clean your house yourself using many products and tools or prefer hire someone to do it? ^^

money is a important factor.

Defragging your PC is much important as maintain it.

1. Most programs that you've mentioned are PAID products,however the products that I have recommended are FREE!
2.All the products listed by you will constantly run in the background, using RAM and CPU time.
3. While I have listed 7 tips for you, you'll only need to download 3 software which will NOT run in the background and won't add any extra services to your Windows.

With that I mind, I can only say that you should really give a try to any maintainance software at first, as you can't really learn without seeing the "other part". Which one should you choose? Well give them all a try as they all have a free trial period and see which one you like better.. they all do the same job anyway so it won't really matter...TuneUp 2013 has a lot of options which can seem interesting so there's your first 'try out'.
