We rarely do

We rarely recommend 'Tune-Up' utilities because experience in these forums show that they are either unreliable or users don't understand what they are doing.

We never recommend Registry Cleaners. The risk of serious damage is too great.

However we do often recommend CCleaner from http://www.piriform.com/ for cleaning out Temp folders and Temporary Internet Files, and so on. With it's stock settings and not touching it's registry check option, it is quite useful and harmless.

I hope that helps.

Never used it.

I don't use 'Tune-up' utilities for the reasons I gave above.
