A PC Tune-Up to Improve Vista Performance
By Frank J. Ohlhorst
One of the biggest complaints users have about Vista is slow performance. With Vista, slow boot ups and application launches are mostly the nature of the beast. After all Vista is chock full of services and code to help protect users from threats.
Large Software is taking on the speed challenge with PC Tune-Up, a utility which cleans registries, eliminates unnecessary services and gives users control of startup options. Large Software is marketing PC Tune-Up as an end-user tool for Vista PCs, but VARs can turn the product into an installed service, where they sell the software, installation and first tune up as one of their offerings. PC Tune-Up also works with XP, which over time seem to slow down. At $29.99, the product is cheap, but solution providers shouldn’t expect to garner much money from the product; profit will have to come from the installation and the initial run of PC Tune-Up.
