Choosing the right  system maintenance tool is essential. We could recommend three tools, the first being TuneUp Utilities 2013. You can save 50 percent from TuneUp Utilities 2013 [3-PC], ideal for installing on three home computers. If you have a single PC, save even more with TuneUp Utilities 2013 [1-PC]. There is also TuneUp Utilities 2013 [UPGRADE] for existing users to upgrade, at a significant discount. Another recommended maintenance tool is AVG PC TuneUp 2013, effectively a rebranded TuneUp Utilities, which helps you to eek extra performance from your machine.

Many homes have more than one computer and keeping them all protected can get expensive. However, if you invest in Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 [3-PC] can be used to ensure the safety of three PCs for just $29.95. Every computer should have at least an antivirus tool installed, and it’s hard to find something that’s better value than Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2013 [1-PC], which costs just $6.95 with a reduction of 83 percent. You can save a fortune protecting all of the computes in your home with 74-percent off Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2013 [3-PC] – a mere $12.95 to protect up to three computers.

Everyone needs a backup tool, whether this is to store important files in a secure location or to make a 1:1 copy of your hard drive, to safeguard against system failure. There are few better backup tools than True Image 2013 by Acronis (Acronis True Image 2013), available for only $24.99, which is currently half price.

Finishing off this selection of the latest and greatest offers are two tools from O&O, both of which place you in control of your hard drive. O&O Migration Kit for Windows 8, available for $22.45 ( a savings of 25-percent off the MSRP), is a bundle consisting of Laplink PCmover Professional 8 and O&O DiskImage 6.8, enabling you to migrate your installed applications and system data to a brand new Windows 8 PC. O&O Defrag 16 Professional is available at a 20-percent discount -- that’s just $23.95.
