There is another tool called system mechanic which I do not recommend (especially not version 7). I used to be a big supporter of Sytem Mechanic until version 6 when they started making junk.
System mechanic has some good stuff too. For example, unlike tuneUp utilities it has a disk defragmenter but at the other hand it doesnt have System Styler like RuneUp where you can change icons, themes, bootscreens.
All other features are pretty much the same. I've noticed that System Mechanic has a better junk cleaner. I never had problems with it.
And finally there is this Ashampoo WinOptimizer 4 (which looks like TuneUp utilities). I havent been able to test it, all I saw was a screenshot.

File encrypter (you can do the same with Winrar or most of other archivers)
File splitter&joiner (same thing again ...)
But the rest looks totally like TuneUP! Amaizing similarity. They even have Disk Space Explorer and virtually every other feature.
Are there any other famous all-in-one tools except these?

norton utilities (custom install and install utilties only, the rest of the software isn't needed and is considered bloatware).

Honestly, all the other all-in-one tools (including those you mentioned) don't perform as well. I'll say that the pc pitstop stuff does work, but I have personal issues with it and can't, in good conscious, recommend them.
honestly, as a pc technician with over 20 yrs experience, I have used all of the above successfully. In fact I like tune up so much I purchased it this year.
If you have a specific task in mind, then a specific tool for that task is probably better.

When Starjax says "we, at GTG, recomend TuneUp Utilities" what exactly does that mean?
Thanks for all the feedback.

So... these optimizing tools do make your life easier (especially if you are a beginner) but one cannot expect miracles. System tuning is a good thing because it has all settings from Windows in one place.
But if you keep installing software all the time your system will crash at some point.
A good thing if you wanna keep your system clean after uninstalling software is Ashampoo Uninstaller. It removes all contents left out by the original uninstallers by making a system screenshot before and after every installation.
