The amazing features that Quick Heal PCTuner brings to the table
December 4, 2012

Just like a vehicle regularly needs servicing in order to function smoothly, a computer requires maintenance and care to perform at its best. Several factors and invalid files slow a PC down and negatively influence system performance, so it is imperative to clean this clutter from time to time. Doing so ensures that your PC performs to the best of its ability and makes full use of its resources.

Main Screen

Quick Heal PCTuner is the centralized tool that tunes up your PC to provide optimum performance. The agile software used in PCTuner deletes traces of popularly used applications in the system. Furthermore, its enhanced features remove unwanted programs at startup and boost the overall system boot time. Other factors that work towards hampering PC performance like low disk space, slow boot time and cluttered registry files are also resolved with the help of the following features.

Disk Cleanup
Every PC has several invalid and junk files that pile up over time and these need to be removed in order to boost performance. The removal of temporary files, Internet cache files, invalid shortcut files, garbage files etc. also lead to an increase in disk space. Disk cleanup allows you to easily remove such files from your machine.

Disk Cleanup

Registry Cleanup
Invalid registry files are created due to improper installation of programs. Sometimes, even proper installation leads to storage of improper entries. The removal of such entries leads to faster response and system performance but it is impractical to remove such entries individually. PCTuner carries out this removal process.

Registry Cleanup

Traces Cleanup
This feature removes all traces of Internet browsing history, search history, temporary Internet files and Most Recently Used (MRU) list of recently used applications. The removal of such cookies and history improves system performance considerably.

Auto Tuneup
This cumulative feature allows you to carry out disk cleanup, registry cleanup, traces cleanup and defragmenter at the same time. With the help of auto tuneup none of these activities need to be carried out individually so the process is highly simplified.

Auto Tuneup

Duplicate File Finder
One of the key components that add to system clutter are duplicate copies and images of various files on a system. Most of these images are redundant and simply slow the machine down unnecessarily. Quick Heal PCTuner also scans the machine for such duplicate files and then removes them permanently.

Secure Delete
Advanced recovery software can be used to retrieve files even after they have been deleted. If this is a situation you wish to avoid, then the Secure Delete feature is recommended. Deleted files are completely removed from the hard disk with the help of one-pass deletion, two-pass deletion and DoD deletion methods. DoD deletion refers to a method recommended by the Department of Defense which ensures that the data cannot be deleted.

Secure Delete

Restore
Accidental deletions can cause havoc sometime. Whenever a cleanup action is performed by PCTuner a restore point is created. In case there are any unwanted changes or deletions, this ensures that a previous point can be reached easily. The restore feature is enabled by default but it can be disabled as well.

Service Optimizer and Startup Booster
Unwanted programs often run at startup and slow down a PC considerably. Such programs can be stopped at startup with the help of these two features.

Service Optimizer

Data Theft Protection
If your PC contains sensitive data, you can restrict USB drives and external storage devices from transferring data to and fro. This actively prevents data theft and loss.

Quick Heal PCTuner allows users to fine tune the performance of their machine with the help of several features that can be customized. This leads to removal of redundant files and an in-depth cleanup of the machine so that the best performance can be obtained. Every PC requires efficient maintenance and care from time to time, in addition to the best system protection software, and this can be achieved with the help of this product. PCTuner is a component of Quick Heal Total Security but it can also be purchased separately.

    dear
    i am using quick heal anti virus & pc tuner from last two years but the performance of pc is very poor and it takes too much time to start and shut down almost 15 minutes. is there any other way to improve the performance?

    • Hi Kamlesh,
      This is a common occurence with machines that are a couple of years old. Clutter of files and registry entries slows the system down. It is recommended that you run a PCTuner scan. If you are in further doubt, you can visit this link to submit a ticket – http://www.quickheal.com/supp_tic.asp. Our support team will then contact you.
      Regards.

    • Hi Pradnya,
      Quick Heal PCTuner is integrated only with Quick Heal Total Security 2013 (or previous editions). If you own Quick Heal Internet Security 2013 (or previous editions) then you will need to purchase this product separately. You can purchase the product online at this link – http://www.quickheal.com/pctune.asp. Or you can call our support center at 927-22-33-000.
      Regards.

      Yes, Quick Heal PCTuner is integrated with Total Security. To access it you need to open the Quick Heal dashboard and then click on the PCTuner icon which is near the bottom of the window next to the Scan button.
