TuneUp Utilities 2008 on win 98se?


Recommended Posts

TuneUp Utilities 2008 is no long support win 98. Neverthless I try it on my win 98 se and find that some functions act fine (registry cleaner for example) and some not (1 click maintenance). Is there a way to make it all worked well?

Jv16 Powertools (macecraft.com) gets rid of register problems and useless files a LOT more effectively. It cleans out cache memory. It will speed up your computer. I've used it for months. It's easy to use and doesn't crash your win 98 system.

No need of updates when old versions run OK, being your OS the same. In many cases new versions are not good for Windows 98 SE users even being compatible: I've had myself some bad experiences with software "for Windows 98", which sabotaged my computer. Well, I suspect maybe it is a way to "convince" you to buy a new machine without spending a cent in ads. I always seek the best version for my needs, no matter if I find it to be the oldest one. Good old versions are also Easy Cleaner 2.0, BoostSpeed 3 and SpeedStartup. A very good freeware new registry cleaner is Glary Registry Repair 2.8.

I would respectfully disagree with that suggestion. I tried this program, liked it well enough, but after I ran Spybot, it found the following malware ...

Telecom/Malware!

FlashDollars.RegistryRepair: [sBI $9FE4E5EC]

Program directory

Use this program with caution! I immediately deleted it after Spybot S&D detected this malware.

You could try RegSeeker 1.55 as an alternative. I use it every day and it works quite well without any glitches or crashes.
