Whenever One Care does a tune up it uses up 98% of my resources.  Is there a fix for this or can the tune up be turned off?

You have two options to stop Windows One Care
Option 1: Stop run at Start up
1. In 'Start' click Run
2. Type msconfig in Startup tab
3. Uncheck to OneCare after that Save and Restart computer to take affect
Option 2: Stop service
1. Start>Run Type services.msc
2. Click to OneCare services disable and stop it

If I stop the entire program I lose all my security.  I only want to stop "Tune up"

You can't turn it off within One Care and it's not a separate service
