Editors' review

Vista users usually find lots of room to enhance their system's performance. DTweak helps optimize your OS by offering lots of info and options.

DTweak offers a sleek, stylish interface that houses a nice complement of tools that any user will appreciate. Besides the obligatory Registry cleaner and disk defragmenter, this utility offers a variety of system tools and settings to optimize memory and CPU cache, firewall handling, Internet Explorer tweaks, and Windows Update management. This utility responded well during our tests, and seemed to be designed with the user in mind. We liked the way it categorized its tools: for example, Common Customizations for disabling personalized menus, Start Button balloons, drag-and-drop, and context menus, among others.

DTweak performed quickly and satisfactorily. Some of its tools duplicates those you'll find in Windows, but many users will appreciate the convenience of having them organized together with other optimizing options in a single toolbox. Power users may prefer a more robust box of goodies, but most personal users will be pleased with this array. The demo limit is a bit brief, but it should be adequate for determining DTweak's suitability for most users.

    March 18, 2010   |   By cornieh

    Version: DTweak Pro 4.8

    Pros

    It has options for to many different tools to help fine tune your computer. The one tool I like best is the hard drive monitor, it show the efficiency of your hard drive, ie: temp.

    Cons

    none that I could find

    Summary

    Not much more to add to what I've already said.

    "Works well - Great Registry Cleaner"

    April 05, 2008   |   By cybergaar

    Version: DTweak 3.9.1

    Pros

    Has several optimization tweaks for your Vista system. I tested it on XP Home and found no problems. Registry Cleaner found over 700 errors compared to RegMechanic and CCleaner which only found less than 100. Cleaned all with no problems. Must have .Net installed. Found no 10-day-trail nag screens or limitations beyond the 10 day period -- FREEWARE ???

    Cons

    No undo. Must backup your registry and create a system restore point before tweaks if you want to play it safe. For the price, it could include more optimization tweaks. Internet optimizer actually slowed my speed from 10Mb to 6Mb. Most of the optimizations it does, you could do within Vista or XP without this program, except cleaning the registry, which is the programs only strength in my opinion.

    "I'm truly surprised."

    February 16, 2008   |   By Charles K

    Version: DTweak 3.7

    Pros

    I just got my new PC a few days ago. It has Vista Home Premium which is new to me. Looking for a tuning, tweaking programs for it, I found two especially designed for Vista. This and Vista Manager. I like both but could only afford one. so this is what i decided on. I have Tuneup Utilities 2008 and now this. Being wary of these type programs, I gave it a go based on a friends advice. I ran a disk and registry defrag, a registry cleaner (cleaned 863 errors), modified my startup programs, cleaned my hard drive, got rid of several junk files, checked my hard drives health and modified a some settings I'm confident wouldn't cause problems. All worked better then I expected. A couple programs that weren't performing quite right, are now. It has a great GUI and so far all is good. All backups work like they should ( I tried them first so I'm sure). I think I made a good choice and can, in good concise, recommend it for Vista users.

    Cons

    The free trial is short and somewhat limited. I'd like to see a full, thirty day trial like Tuneup Utilities has. I believe it would gain some popularity if it had a better trial.
