do little or nothing to improve performance and more often than not make matters worse. They operate by changing various registry settings to conform with the authers view of how things should be without any reference to the things that truely effect performance, namely, the number of processes trying to run and the resources available to run them.
To roll back to how it was, I would first uninstall the tuneup utilities, and then do a system restore to a date prior to installing them.
You haven't described your system spec so advice is difficult but the resources that have the most effect on performance are Ram, cpu speed and number of cores, HDD speed in rpm, if any of these are on the low side then having 50 or more active processes will cause poor performance.
so yeah, i installed it, hurp ti durp.
ran all the required optimizations for my visuals and net, and what do you know, my ping, in ALL games, have spikes from 100 to 250, and in those games that i already was 250 on its now about 400 XD (namely games like starcraft 2)
i cant figure this out, tune up only seems to change firefox simultaneous connections, it "doesn't" or at least shouldn't touch other settings, but it did, and i cant even roll it back, i ask of you great C-Net people, What do?
