    "Pointless and messed up my registry"

    March 24, 2008  |   By skiracer712


    Puts stuff in one easy place to change some settings. Access's alot of stuff on your PC.


    If you know about computers, you probably already have your PC set-up to the settings you want. As this is all the program told me, that I already had everything set how I wanted it, so I uninstalled it. I use Revo-Uninstaller to uninstall programs and it works great, much like windows add/remove. It still uses the uninstall from the program you are uninstalling. Although it checks for leftover files and such. Anyways, since uninstalling this program, every 30-45 minutes I get 8 error windows at once about Win32 services. Norton, Spyware Terminator, and Ad-Aware can not find anything on my computer, besides the usual tracking cookies (i keep strong security on my PC).

    Like the review above said, all these tweaks can be done manually by editing the registry. This basically gives average users, or people who aren't so computer savy, a chance to easily tweak built in windows features. It is pretty much fool proof, so I'm not sure why the above reviewer had issues, I doubt it was from TweakUI itself. This is one of the few really useful tools from MS, give it a try.
