This article describes the Microsoft Maintenance wizard (Tuneup.exe) tool in Windows 98 and Windows Millennium Edition (Me).


The Maintenance wizard is a tool you can use to schedule maintenance programs so that they run automatically. To start Maintenance wizard, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Windows Tune-Up. The following maintenance programs can be scheduled to run automatically by Maintenance wizard:
  • ScanDisk
  • Disk Space Manager
  • Disk Defragmenter
You can modify the start time to any particular time you want these programs to start. To alter these times, run the wizard, and then follow the instructions on the screen.

NOTE: You can use your computer while Disk Defragmenter is running. However, your computer operates slower and the defragmentation process restarts if the contents of the drive you are defragmenting changes.
