    XdN Tweaker

    In short, it is a free tweaking program for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, and Windows 7.

    Because maintaining a Windows system means more than just deleting files and folders. I selected this system-tweaking tool as it supports both XP and Vista systems in a single package. It does require the host machine have .NET installed. Other than that it provides a wealth of system adjustments and fine-tuning options Definitely needed in the professional system maintainer’s toolbox of applications.

    Game Booster | Fast Game Accelerator | Free Accelerator

    Designed to help optimize your PC for smoother, more responsive game play in the latest PC games with the touch of a button, Game Booster helps achieve the performance edge previously only available to highly technical enthusiasts.

    It works by defragmenting game directories, temporarily shutting down background processes, cleaning RAM, and intensifying processor performance. That means you can keep all the features of operating systems ready for when you need them, but turn them off when you are ready to get down to serious business – gaming.

    I tried the EnhanceMySe7en. Pretty cool stuff but only free to try for 15 days then you must pay and register to keep using it.
    Not meaning any disrespect but that doesn't spell free to me...it says bait and hook.

    Freeware SSD Tweaking Tool

    The SSD Tweak Utility can help with some of those wretched tweaks you need to do to minimise writes to your SSD. Download it here (106kb)

    SSDTweak.JPG

    It doesn't do all of the necessary tweaks but it will at least get you started. The only downside is the rather confusing interface which make it hard to decide whether to check or uncheck boxes. Best just hit Auto Tweak Settings and get on to other things. A few extra tweaks are unlocked if you donate $10 to the author.

    Freeware Utility Tweaks for AMD rigs

    Game Booster1 worked well enough and there is now Game Booster 2 which promises to be even better. Just a quick word of caution though, this is still flagged as a Beta release and when I clicked 'Game Drivers' and went to the page recommended to update my Realtek High Definition Sound Drivers I was left without any sound - I think GameBooster 2 (beta) pointed me to the wrong drivers!

    For those with AMD rigs the combination of AMD Fusion and AMD OverDrive could take game play tweaking to another level. Please note that AMD Fusion requires an AMD CPU and AMD OverDrive only works with an AMD CPU and an AMD Chipset motherboard.

    WinBubble Freeware Tweaking Utility

    WinBubble is freeware utility offering a comprehensive range of tweaks that are well explained and easy to apply. You can download the latest version directly from the WinBubbles download page.

    It takes a while to load but once running it's easy to use and you can learn more about the tweaks on on this site The interface is well thought out and, unlike some other freeware tweakers, it is easy to see what tweaks you have already applied. The Tweaking Toolbox is a unique feature where you can add your own links to other tools and utilities.

    WinBubble.

    As far as I could tell all the tweaks were properly implemented and the only hiccup was that WinBubble decided to restore the shortcut arrows that I had previously disabled with FxVisor. No real problem and one that I've encountered with other tweaking utilities. All in all WinBubble is a neat little utility that does its' job well and without a fuss.

    Yeap, Cool Tweaker For 7 and Vista:

    Do you like to change up your Windows’ settings to get it exactly the way you like it? If you do, I’m sure you’re familiar with digging through menus to find the exact settings you want to change. It’d be much faster if all of the things you wanted to change were in one place.

    WinBubble is a small and free application that gives us an easy way to change and tweak all of our Windows 7 settings in one place. I’m going to quickly take you through all of the settings that WinBubble can change.



    General


    [​IMG]



    You can brand your system ownership information and put any image in the logo. Windows OEM info and Owner info can be directly launched. Again, by checking or unchecking t he boxes, you can add features like move to, copy to, take ownership, create restore point, restrict access to and more in your context menu.

    Even your desktop can be customized to remove shortcut arrows, slow-down animations, hide empty drives, show username folder and much more.



    Specific


    [​IMG]


    You can tweak bubble, ribbon and mystify settings in place of default Windows screen saver settings. You can also tweak all the toolbox settings in this tab.
    Icons

    [​IMG]


    Icons can be changed from the conventional Windows icons to some high resolution icons of your choice. This does not involve changing any system dll files and can easily be restored back if necessary.


    Windows 7


    [​IMG]



    The logon screen can be replaced with any kind of wallpaper from your hard disk, and the text can be optimized with shadow icons. WinBubble provides us with a special option. It can integrate with the logon screen with the ease of access button. Once this option is set, pressing the ease of access button on the welcome screen will accessWinBubble before logging into Windows.

    Many utilities under online tools, useful tools, maintenance, advanced tools, network and other tools, DOS utilities, etc. are available in this tab.


    Security


    [​IMG]


    To increase the security of the desktop, we can disable many options like new option in context menu, folder option in Windows menu, auto play of media devices, detection of usb media devices, writing to usb media devices, task manager, access to control panel, etc. UAC options can be directly accessed and security levels can be changed, even password option can be enabled. There is also an option called hide it. It hides completely all drives or some selected drives. It also hides shutdown, sleep, hibernate and restart buttons.


    Features like disable new tab, disable open, disable view source, disable download, disable save as etc. are very handy. For people with low system specifications, you can also get options to disable Windows aero features or other Windows’ components. Changing the start menu options is also possible like searching file index, searching favorites and web pages and searching communication files.


    Speed Up is another option that enable/disable multiple monitor configurations, set menu display delay, decrease shut down time for services, increase bandwidth for internet and network connections, disable failed caching etc. You can also control startup programs from here.



    Tools


    [​IMG]



    In this, any Right-Click Menu entries can be added to Computer icon, Internet Explorer, Explorer/Desktop, All Files in Windows Explorer, Disk, Network and Start Button/Folders easily. You can put in items and tools in my computer section or panel as per convenience. There is something called the My Tweaker Tools that makes it easy for you to add your personalized tweaker to Windows.



    More Policies


    [​IMG]



    Additional tweaks are added to the taskbar and start menu like clear recent document history on exit, remove access to right click on taskbar, lock taskbar etc. Options like hiding and disabling all items on desktop,disabling drag and drop, and restricting desktop toolbar adjustment are also found here.

    There are few quick settings that can be used like disabling notifications, disabling flip 3d, disable taskbar thumbnail, encrypt decrypt right click menu etc. Denying read and write access to all removable storage like CD/DVD drive, usb drive and floppy drive is done. We can also restrict Microsoft management console like computer management, device management, disk management, shared folders and advance firewall settings.
    System options can change Ctrl+Alt+Deloptions. This includes removing change password, lock computer, and task manager and logoff options. We can also restrict access to Windows registry editor.



    IE


    [​IMG]



    You can have total control over IE by managing all settings for its homepage, download directory, enabling/disabling deletion of temporary files and browsing history, disable changing homepage of browser etc.


    Conclusion


    WinBubble is a great application that lets you customize just about everything on your Windows 7 computer, and it’s also very easy to use.




    Download WinBubble

    Re: WinBubble Freeware Tweaking Utility

    FREE WARE TWEAKING TOOLS is not free after 15 days you have to pay. I will not do this because when it says it is free then it is not I consider this bait and switch. It looks like a great program and should be able to stand on its own with out saying it is free when it is truly not free. I can get same info from SIW Ultimate Windows Tweaker, a TweakUI for Windows 7 & Vista | The Windows Club and most of the same tweaks from Ultimate Windows Tweaker, a TweakUI for Windows 7 & Vista | The Windows Club which are truly free programs

    Which one do you mean? Some of those tools come in two versions, commercial and freeware.

    Freeware Tweaking Utilities - Sunrise Seven

    I'd hate to see this thread die with only 6,430 views so I'd like to re-vitalise it with yet another FREEWARE tweaking utility in the form of Sunrise Seven. It may not do a lot more than any of the others mentioned above but it does work very well and does all all it claims to do without any problems.

    Sunrise Seven Screen.


    Getting hold of it is a bit of fun as the main Sunrise Seven download site seems to be in Polish. Don't worry about that because the site is virus free and it only takes a little playing around to download the Sunrise_Seven program (2.607 MB).
