If you’ve purchased AVG TuneUp Subscription or trying it for the first time to optimize your system performance, you should also know how to revert changes made by it to the system. Here is how that can be done.
What is AVG TuneUp?
AVG Tuneup is a system optimization tool from AVG. This requires subscriptions. This looks to optimize system performance by performing scans to find performance issues and unnecessary applications. AVG TuneUp also clears disk space and improves system speed.
AVG TuneUp works on Windows 11/10/8.1 and windows 7 SP1.
When you run the first scan, you can use AVG TuneUp to
- Run Speed Up to do optimizations found
- Show and free up disk space
- Fix Problems it has found in drives using Disk Doctor.
In simple words, it scans your PC for registry errors, junk files, fragmentation errors, broken shortcuts, browser cache, tracking, and other cookies and once the analysis is complete you can follow its recommendations.
The changes made will be displayed in History.
How to undo changes made by AVG TuneUp
- open AVG TuneUp dashboard
- Click on Menu, select History
- View the list of Actions, and click on Undo button for which you want to reverse the changes.
For instance, in the screenshot shown above, you can restore the broken shortcuts.
You should note not all changes can be reversed, only some.
If AVG TuneUp hasn’t made any changes or there are no actions or backup in History to reflect, TuneUp’s History displays ” All clear! There are no changes to undo”.
Note: You should use PC optimization tools that especially include registry cleaners with the most caution. They do more harm than good.
Final words: If you’ve run scans using AVG TuneUp to fix various issues, here is how to reverse the changes made by it.
