Steganos Tuning PRO offers many features designed to make your PC faster and better, including;
This feature identifies and deletes invalid entries in your Windows registry. An error-free Windows registry helps your PC perform better and remain stable.
This feature scans your PC to identify outdated or corrupt drivers. Afterward, you can update the outdated drivers or download new versions of the corrupt ones right from the app. Obsolete or corrupt drivers can cause hardware faults and slow down your computer, so you want to avoid them as much as possible.
Outdated software can pose security risks on your PC. Tuning PRO includes a feature to scan your PC, pinpoint obsolete software, and update them immediately.
Multimedia (video, audio, photos, etc.) take up significant space on your hard disk. Hence, it’s essential to manage them well. Tuning PRO lets you find multimedia files, no matter how hidden within your PC, and delete the ones you no longer need to free up valuable space.
Registry defragmentation is the process of organizing the contents of your Windows registry into the smallest possible number of regions (or fragments) to increase access speed. Tuning PRO lets you do that with ease.
Disk defragmentation is similar to registry defragmentation but for your hard disk. It helps improve data access speeds.
This feature helps protect your online identity by deleting temporary internet files, cookies, and history after each browsing session.
AutoPilot is a feature that runs in your PC’s background, searching for any security problems and alerting you if it detects any.
This feature lets you control which installed programs boot up automatically with your PC. Deleting unnecessary auto-boot-up apps helps improve your computer’s boot time.
