MAGIX PC Check & Tuning 2011 Download Version is a software program developed by MAGIX AG. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named tuningstart.exe. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 45 files. The installed file MXSoftUpdate.DLL is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows Vista (SP2). While about 38% of users of MAGIX PC Check & Tuning 2011 Download come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and DK.
