    Sure, go to add/remove programs and you can uninstall the tuneup 2006.

    Then install the 2007.

    I have never heard of this software before, what is it? Do you have a link?



    I am really confused what you are talking about after that. Can you please reword your question?

    tuneup is just a program that help you maintain, clean and optimize your computer, And it works. It just that theres an option theres that says ,,,,Administrative shares allow network access to all disk on your computer, These shares are not visible in My network Places, but can be accessed directly by entering the drive letter together wit $(for example “C$”). ,,,,, I think it help to prevent hacking of your hard drive,,, but not sure,,,, and i wasnt sure if i click it and i want to share my external hard drive would clicking it stop me from sharing my external drive with the other computer that i network in my home
