  • OneCare tune-up is basically the following:
    A defragmentation pass of the hard disk
    A complete virus and spyware scan of your local drive(s)
    A check for missing Windows updates
    Disk Cleanup (optional)
    And, optionally, a backup.

    OneCare Tune-up can be scheduled to run at a scheduled time and must be run once every 4 weeks at a minimum.

    I can't speak to what Best Buy's Geek Squad does, but I would suspect that they perform some of those taska dn probably also perform some minor tweaks.
