What is Win Tune Pro?
Win Tune Pro is yet another computer optimization tool that our researchers have classified as a potentially unwanted program. Thus, you can remove it without hesitating because it is next to useless. However, you may think that it is extremely useful because it has many functions. So, we invite you to read this whole article that will prove to you that is application is not what its developers claim it to be. We are going to provide you information regarding this program’s origins, distribution channels, and functions, so if you have already installed, please continue reading.
Where does Win Tune Pro come from?
Our researchers have found that Win Tune Pro was published by MIITS LLC, a US-based company that specializes in online marketing. Now, this program does not feature commercial advertisements but given the fact that it is in some way associated with an online advertising company makes it suspicious. This company’s website is Miitsllc.com, and it claims that they “are certified Google Ad Partners agency- training the concepts and methodology involved in running PPC business for last 5 years. We specialize in only one thing – generating leads for your business and we do it in best possible manner.” Whether this company is any good in its niche remains to be seen. We have never heard about this company prior to having to analyze Win Tune Pro, so we are suspicious about it.
In any case, researchers have discovered that this application is distributed using two identical websites at Wintunepro.com and Accenthelp.net. Both of these websites are identical but hosted on different servers. One of them might serve as a backup in case the other goes down, but in all honesty, we do not see the reason for having two identical distribution websites. Also, our researchers have received information stating that Win Tune Pro comes bundled with other applications and that the version that comes with other software has been configured to display fake error messages and offer you to call tech support. However, there is more to this program than meets the eye so let us take a closer look at its functions.
What does Win Tune Pro do?
Win Tune Pro has many functions that include a Registry Cleaner, Registry Defragment, Disk Cleaner, Duplicate File Finder, Memory Optimizer, and Disk Defragment, among others. You might think that such a wide selection of tools makes this application useful and reliable, but you would be wrong. We cannot help but notice that most of this program’s functions are just re-skinned functions already present in Windows. Of course, it has a function that allows you to open the directory in the Registry Editor when you right-click on a result. This is useful when you want to check whether the results are legitimate. So this program can be used as a registry cleaner, but cleaning the registry of unnecessary keys will not improve your computer’s performance, at least notably. Furthermore, an unreliable application such as this might even detect important keys as false positives, delete them and make some programs not work.
While testing this application, our researchers have noticed that this program has a tendency to display various errors and offer you to call tech support dialing 1-800-303-8110. Note that this same tech support number is used by several tech support websites that include virus-protect.net, Testetra.com, and Pc-support24x7.com. We find this function rather suspicious. Researchers think that this function is in place just to make money by charging you premium for the call, and there is no guarantee that you will receive help. Furthermore, this application can show what our researchers believe to be a fake error report that offers you to enter your email address (optional) and send an error report. After obtaining your email address, the developers might start sending you email spam containing promotions and offers to buy some useless product.

In conclusion, Win Tune Pro is a potentially unwanted program because it does not offer anything useful and it is not worth the $69.99 USD asked for it, but you can use it 49 times for free.
