CA unveils PC performance optimisation products

To repair PC performance problems, clean up hard drives and provide anti-virus, anti-spyware protection

By CBR Staff Writer

CA has released new PC Tune-Up and PC Tune-Up Plus line of PC performance optimisation products, which it claims to help pinpoint and repair PC performance problems, clean up hard drives, and keep drivers updated. It also provides anti-virus and anti-spyware protection.

The company said that the PC Tune-Up allows users to manage scheduled scans for up to three PCs from a single location. An integrated Scan and Fix application makes maintenance simple by running a single scan that can identify issues impacting a PC’s performance and then a single mouse click to fix them.

According to CA, the PC Tune-Up scanning and testing analyses video performance, disk usage and fragmentation, registry bloat and more. In addition, an automated driver update utility scans the PC to see if it is running the latest drivers, identifying those that are outdated and automatically downloading and installing driver updates. In PC Tune-Up Plus, the functions are coupled with anti-virus and anti-spyware utilities that help prevent infection by online attacks.

The PC Tune-Up and PC Tune-Up Plus features an interface; automated driver updates to keep PC up-to-speed and up-to-date; defragmentation to maximise hard drive performance; junk file clean-up to reclaim wasted hard drive space; PC optimiser; internet optimiser; memory optimiser to disable unnecessary start-up programs; and scan report for PC health status.
