It aims to be a one-stop shot for Vista users to keep their computers running on all cylinders, but a few misspellings and hard-to-read user interface threaten this app's credibility.
DTweak Free lets you customize Vista features from its interface, but the dark background was a bit hard on the eyes. Disable Start menu subfolders, hide the Control Panel, clean your Registry, defrag your hard drive, and more. The program displays your system information for quick reference. It also lets you manage your security settings for firewall, IE, and Windows updates. During our tests, the Registry scan worked very fast. It quickly displayed the files that needed to be cleaned. The disk defrag also worked surprisingly fast. One the downside, we came across several misspellings in the user interface that were hard to ignore.
Despite being a free utility, there are a couple of features that are only available with the paid Pro version. Still, if you can brush aside a couple of minor annoyances, DTweak Free makes customizing and optimizing Vista very easy.
DTweak Free is an advanced tweaker and optimizing tool especially designed for Windows Vista. You will be surprised at the speed your PC will be having after you use this software. With DTweak you can defragment disks and registers, clean registry system, tune computer performance, and optimize and increase the speed of your system without manually modifying registers or ini files.
DTweak Free at the moment has a lot of features like Disk and Registry defragmenters, error scanners, and user account control tweakers. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
