Introducing PC Tune Up

PC Tune Up is a welcome addition to our security suites that will help you keep your computer in excellent working order. The module will scan your computer system and spot anything that is causing it to slow down, such as leftover programs, data corruption or not having enough hard disk space available.

Why the need for PC Tune Up?

BullGuard PC Tune Up is a continuous automated service check of your computer to make it faster, more reliable and more efficient. There are several things that slows down a PC in time:

Internet temporary files that are downloaded when you browse websites


  • Windows temporary files that are created by application installers or by running applications


  • Unused or broken Windows registry entries which are registry keys that are no longer tied to programs or drivers from the computer. Defragments the Registry. 

Registry defragmentation restructures the registry by removing unnecessary space (not necessary for SSDs)


  • Unnecessary or old Windows memory dumps and log files that are created when applications crash or when your system has issues and needs to report them to Microsoft.


Empty the Recycle Bin to help keep your computer clean with just a push of a button.

  • Disable unnecessary programs from startup to increase system’s performance.

The Tune Up module will help you find the items that are slowing down your PC and fix them to keep your system running at full speed.
