Editors' review

Internet Tweak aims to help users with slow computers and Internet connections. However, its complicated functionality is certain to turn more than a few users off.

The program's interface is well organized and, while the functions may be confusing, is intuitive to navigate through. By balancing the various computer sections it speeds up through six tabs, users can cycle through and make their choices by simply clicking a radio button. The Help file will most likely be a necessity unless you are well versed in computer terminology. While navigating the program is simple, actually knowing how you are tweaking your Internet and other computer aspects requires some serious knowledge. Under each tab (Dialup Networking, Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, Windows Integration, Netscape Communicator, and Miscellaneous) are long lists of computer terms you can activate. Ranging from the relatively familiar (Boost Modem Transfer Speed) to the unfamiliar (Change MaxMTU for TCP/IP) and everything in between, users may be puzzled. While we did recognize a small speed improvement, because of this wide swath of terms and functions, this program's functions will only appeal to advanced users. The program is not short on options for its features either. Here, thankfully, things are a little more traditional. The best feature is in the Preferences area, where you can choose to apply these changes across the board or simply to this particular user.

While it was well organized, we feel like 10 days of trying this program will only appeal to users with advanced knowledge of computers and terminology.

    "Good Internet Connection and Windows Tweaker."

    September 06, 2010   |   By Blade10X

    Version: Internet Tweak 4.90

    Pros

    Categories sorted at the top of program's interface. Under some categories there are several pages that is possible to scroll and customize every offered option. Program with most comprehensive optimizations. Worth to try!

    Cons

    Some options lacks of more descriptions, especially main comands (apply, ok and reset settings). For some users will be a little harder to recognize those commands. Program's preferences could be bigger.

    Summary

    If interface does not bother you so much, and you are not looking on it's confusing options, if you know what are you doing! You can get a real boost to your internet connection. If you have at least some knowledge in Internet and it's connections, then you'll be able to manage just fine. Program contains really great help file in whom is described every option.
