User Comments

Die Datei ist ein Bestandteil von Tune Up Utilities und verhindert, daß sich bereits mit Tune Up Utilities deaktivierte Programme bzw. Autostartprogramme beim Start des Computers aktivieren. Beispiel: Office 2003 habe ich mit Tune Up deaktiviert, die schon beschriebene Datei fügt einen Wert in die Registry und deswegen wird sie von vielen Anti-Viren-Scans als verdächtig (verdächtiges Verhalten!) eingestuft. Wenn man trotzdem Microsoft Outlook öffnet, melded die Datei, daß ein bereits deaktiviertes Programm wieder aktiviert wird, bis die Sitzung geschloßen wird. Daher ungefährlich!

Best practices for resolving TuneUpUtilitiesService64 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with TuneUpUtilitiesService64. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
