The PC system utilities software cleans your hard drive methodically by deleting temporary files, emptying the recycling bin, removing outdated system-restore points and clearing lists of last-accessed files. Delete Internet History erases records of your internet browsing, cookies and temporary internet files. This ensures that tracking cookies installed by online retailers and others to show your internet patterns are removed.

One downside to PC Check & Tuning is its disk defragmentation, which removes file fragments from your hard drive, relying on the tool that comes with Windows. The company should create a built-in defragmenter for the software.

PC Check & Tuning has several trustworthy optimization features. Among them is Configure Services. It disables unnecessary Windows services and sets services to begin only if needed by your system. It's intuitive because it intelligently adjusts Windows services without blindly disabling them.

The Internet Tuning feature optimizes network and internet-browser settings. You'll notice a performance difference right away after applying this feature. The loading speed of websites improved greatly when we enabled this feature, and files downloaded quicker than without the feature.

It's easy to track space on your hard drive with the software's Data Manager. It scans through folders and files and presents an analysis of what occupies the most space. It lets you delete large files to quickly free up space on your hard drive.

Fine-tuning your settings can improve your system's performance. The Configure Windows tab lets you adjust settings for functions within your Windows operating system. It handles everything from file assignments to startup settings.

There are five plans under the Save Power tab to optimize your system's performance and manage the amount of power used by your system. Customize the power plan if you don' like the presets. Using power efficiently will help your system run smoother and more effectively.

MAGIX PC Check & Tuning works well to keep your computer clean and running efficiently. The PC system-utilities application handles most areas of computer maintenance and fixes almost any problem that could compromise the performance of your computer. It's excellent software.
