The tune-up application is simply a utility to "setup" your defrag, scandisk, and other utilities.  If you click on it, it will schedule the other utilitiies and then run all of them.

It will also search your HD for unneeded files.

Thanks. so what should i have it set at. I set the defrag, scan and clean up for the following times 2;30 am 2;45 am 4;00am
If I set the tune up app for one set time, will it run these 3 programs at that time and if so what should I set them up for individually,or should i turn them off and let them run through the tuneup app. I know this sounds confusing.
thanks again
