What is Super TuneUp?

Super TuneUp — a bogus system optimization tool that tracks its users while promoting its full version

Super TuneUp PUPSuper TuneUp is a product from the company that has a bad name for creating these rogue system applications. Super TuneUp is a highly questionable tool that has been promoted as a free Windows registry repair software that is supposed to clean the computer system and improve its performance. However, it seems that its developer Systweak Software has yet another purpose of releasing the software which is collecting users' information to design more tempting ads and make its product more profitable. If you visited the official website of Super TuneUp, you could find claims about the usefulness of the app. Besides, there is also a statement that it's a Microsoft Partner. However, these claims are false because Microsoft recommends avoiding programs offering users to modify their Registries.[1] The only thing this program does is helping the user scan the system and allegedly finding invalid registry keys that are supposedly causing system slowdowns and crashes. Additionally, it offers to fix these issues for $40. Please, do NOT spend your money on such useless tools!

How to prevent from getting system tools

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
