No experience with that.

But in general I can say I'm not such big friend of these tuning utilities. I have read now a bit about TuneUp Utilities 2011 and most people think you don't really need. It can give a hand customizing desktop and such, but it won't help to make the computer faster. Faster it'll get if you can add some more memory :handgestures-thumbupleft:

I don't use anything else but sometimes CCleaner for cleaning up registry from old entries. Anyway one needs to be careful with such, but you know that. To have the system fast it should be enough to switch off services you don't use at all, clean up the autostart things and defrag disk from time to time.

All these things are done too by these TuneUp Utilities, only you need to pay for it. And as far as I have read on some systems it has made them slower than before.

You wanna give it a try?

All opinions are important mate... I working as PC technician.. but sometimes I need opinions or suggestions other people...

In my notebook I have the nearly best CPU T7800 (which working for this mainboard... better is - T9500 but have only more cache second level - 6mb (current have 4mb) and IS too EXPENSIVE) also max memory 4gb (maximum on mainboard and for chipset) ... I changed graphic card from 256mb to 512mb (from higher model).. but I think that maybe MAYBE I can tunning some setting in software... Win 7 Ult..... from that reason question

For future if somebody have problems with TOSHIBA laptops I think that I can help... I have a little experience :)

When you say tune do you mean overclock?

You should not overclock a laptop because you create more heat which will make the system even slower then at default levels,so my suggestion is leave it alone you can never improve something you just end up braking it... as i have learned in the past :D
