Tweak Windows 7, Vista and XP with TweakNow PowerPack 2009 Free


I do not like Windows operating system but there is not doubt that it is very customizable operating system. From looks and feels to performance and stability can be configured to suit your personal taste. Unfortunately most of the configuration settings are not available in Control Panel and thus must be configured manually through a registry editor (RegEdit). This might not be a problem for computer geeks, but this is surely a daunting task for others. To help non technical users configured their Windows like geeks do, in Windows Secret module, TweakNow PowerPack 2009 has gathered the most popular Windows XP/Vista/7 hidden settings and provide them in an easy and safe user interface.
