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.

"Seemed to cause problems on my computer"

May 06, 2011  |  By MarcusEJC

 |  Version: TweakNow PowerPack 2011 3.2.1 SP1a

Pros

Memory optimiser is good.

Cons

After running it a few times, it seemed to cause my computer to go insane. Then I restored the backups it had made, and my computer was working fine again. Maybe it's too agsressive with the changes it makes to the system.

"My Choice For A Free PC Uitility Suite"

May 02, 2011  |  By seventhragnarok

 |  Version: TweakNow PowerPack 2011 3.2.1 SP1a

Pros

Truly a power pack of PC utilities. Does everything but chauffeurs you around town. Only thing missing IS...

Cons

...a drive scrubber/wiper. :-(

Summary

This program is an all-in-one utility program. It does more in one program than I've experienced other utility programs do (makes me wonder what extra the Professional version does). If it had a drive wiper, it would be my ONLY choice in a utility program. Alas. :-(

"Needs to improve to compete with the other "tweekers"!!"

April 21, 2011  |  By airlift21

 |  Version: TweakNow PowerPack 2011 3.2.1 SP1a

Pros

Nice interface and a few good modules. It's free of course, which is why I gave it 3 stars and not 4.

Cons

When running some of the modules, it's not entirely clear what it's actually doing... or achieving. A bit slow sometimes, compared to the other more superior free products out there.

Summary

I prefer Auslogics tweaking software, as it's faster and is more thorough. Also, WinUtlities is a more preferred program. TweakNow PowerPack has some way to go to impress me enough to not uninstall it after giving it a fair trial. If it was a bit faster, more thorough and more effective, with the same interface then it would be a clear winner for me. Until that happens, I can't whole heartedly recommend it!
