Using AVG Tuneup Utilities and any other programs of that nature is a good way to trash your computer.

They can damage Windows and damage programs and generate error/warning messages and generally wreak havoc.

Stay away from them, no what they claim they can do to make a computer run better and faster.

Agree with Frank 100%. Please look over this info from another one of our trusted Tech's/Advisers...

Quote from Phantom010

You should avoid Registry Cleaners, Boosters, Optimizers, TuneUp Utilities... This type of software will do a lot more harm than good, and should only be used by advanced users who really know their way around the registry. Never to be used blindly on "Auto" mode. Most members coming here with WEIRD symptoms had their computer messed up by malware and/or registry cleaners. These utilities do not only remove what "they think" are orphan entries in the registry but legitimate files still in use will be deleted in the process, crippling some programs and Windows applications beyond repair. In a word, it's a scam.

Keep in mind that they will always find "errors" to fix, even on a fresh Windows install! In itself, this should be enough to convince non-believers...
