TweakNow PowerPack 2010

CNET Editors' review

TweakNow PowerPack 2009 is a free set of tools that give you the power to tweak, modify, and personalize just about every aspect of Windows and your PC. It features a fully integrated suite of modular utilities. There's a Registry Cleaner module, a nice touch in freeware since so many of them cost more than they're worth, but there's also a Registry Defragmenter that reorganizes things for speedier performance. The Windows Secrets module gives you access to more than 100 hidden Windows settings. The Virtual Desktop module lets you run as many as four different virtual desktops at once, so you can try out a wide range of looks and configurations, or keep separate desktops for work and play.

The icon-driven interface is the sort we love: simple, intuitive, and reasonably attractive in a Vista-ish way. It basically just lists its utilities in the left-hand pane, and the selected application displays in the main window. Selecting, for example, Miscellaneous Tools calls up a selection of icons for some interesting extras, including a RAM Optimizer, CD AutoRun and Auto Shutdown managers, a Process Manager, and the Virtual Desktop module. The System Information and Startup modules make it easy to manage Windows' start-up, which too easily gets gummed up with unnecessary programs. Icons simplify adding shortcuts to your favorite modules.

TweakNow PowerPack 2009 is free. New versions have enhanced support for Windows 7. Support for Google's Chrome has also been added the Track Cleaner module, which erases browsing traces and other digital footprints.

    "I love this!"

    February 15, 2011  |   By Jeromemriley

    Version: TweakNow PowerPack 2010 2.3.2

    Pros

    Easy to understand and operate. Takes the guess work out of system maintenance.

    Cons

    No cons. Love it.

    Summary

    I run this regularly on my PC and it runs flawless. I mostly use a Mac. I've updated this application every year and my PC runs about as smooth as my Mac.

    "Almost indispensable"

    February 12, 2011  |   By jcfsusmc

    Version: TweakNow PowerPack 2010 2.3.2

    Pros

    1. Simple as pie. Options and tweaks you have to pay $50 or more to get elsewhere. For me, 2010 has been flawless for over six months. Brilliant tweak capabilities. Tiny footprint in memory at best. Backs up EVERYTHING it changes.

    Cons

    So simple, it can be dangerous in the hands of a beginner! Recommend password option so other users (or friends who like playing jokes on you) can't play around with this app behind your back! :)

    Hope to see SSD support in next update/upgrade.

    Summary

    This app is so diverse, accurate, simple, and just plain handy that I find it hard to believe it is ranked below over a dozen apps you have to purchase. This app is better than any other maintenance app I have ever used, and I originally downloaded it for the tweaks!

    I understand that previous versions had their issues, but I have NONE. I build my own computers, and for those I sell or build/repair for others, I always install TP and give them a five minute lesson in how to use this almost indispensable application.

    Version: TweakNow PowerPack 2010 2.3.2

    "Works as described"

    January 15, 2011  |   By Lust_For_Life

    Version: TweakNow PowerPack 2010 2.3.2

    Pros

    Free registry cleaner, and offers quite a few tweaks. Seems easy to use although I haven't tried nearly all the features.

    Cons

    After cleaning my registry and all tracks, PC isn't running any faster...although that might not be the products fault.

    Summary

    Doesn't hurt to download and try it, especially for the free registry cleaner!

    "Easy to use to clean up or change settings in Windows."

    January 3, 2011  |   By jgminor

    Version: TweakNow PowerPack 2010 2.3.2

    Pros

    Installs easy, runs easy. great clean up utility, can customize where you want cleaned.

    Cons

    Watch deleting windows temp files.

    Summary

    I use this as much as I use a virus or spyware scanner. Keeps your Windows clean and running fast. Has a good memory cleaner also. Have installed on all the pcs, desktops and laptops, in my family. Run it once a day and keep your pc cleaned of junk and unnecessary files.

    "Awesome product - absolute must have app"

    December 31, 2010  |   By misplacedscot

    Version: TweakNow PowerPack 2010 2.3.2

    Pros

    Does everything it is supposed to do and very fast. Does not hang and PC is absolutely faster after running. Very easy to use - even a beginner can figure out this app without any help!

    Cons

    Have not found anything that I would consider a "con"

    Summary

    If your computer isn't running as well as it should or if you've found something that shouldn't be there, run this app. It will find orphan files buried in your registry and mark them as to whether or not they are safe to delete. That's a no-brainer; if it's there and it shouldn't be and it's marked safe to delete - obviously, delete it!
