Editors' Review

You'll find this user-friendly toolbox of optimizing utilities a handy package if you're a home user with low-security issues. Nicely designed with quick performance, this bundle of goodies will be appropriate for most noncommercial system users.

Ultimate Windows Tweaker launches a simple but nicely designed interface for selecting optimization options for your system. It offers a two-paned window: the left, vertical pane lists the categories of options, and the right, larger pane displays the check boxes and drop-down menus associated with the category selected in the vertical pane. This free toolbox performed nicely in our tests. The check-box format for selecting options to activate or disable is straightforward and easy to understand, and leaves behind any ambiguity that a novice might encounter in a more robust toolbox. The categories for options follow a logical arrangement suitable for most home users: system information, personalization, user accounts and user account control, system performance, security settings, network tweaks, Internet Explorer, and more. We liked the buttons included with each option category for Create Checkpoint and Restore Defaults, which help to reassure novices that any changes can be reversed.

Intermediate and experienced users will probably want a more robust optimizer with more bells and whistles, but this is a good introductory toolbox that offers a strong string of fundamental Windows tweaks that any user should be familiar with.

"A good basic tweaker"

November 07, 2009  |  By greatbigdragon

 |  Version: Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2.0

Pros

It has a lot of settings that can be tweaked, including the welcome screen.

Cons

It could have a way to change icons in the device stage. My MS Arc Mouse icon is black, and I want it to be red like my mouse.

Summary

It's a great tweaker, and I'm not at all worried about it flagging my copy of Windows as not genuine, because I know I can call Microsoft and have it sorted out if there's a problem. :)

"You want to keep your PC Genuine then don't install it"

November 02, 2009  |  By lmanlo09

 |  Version: Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2.0

Pros

A lot of Customization

Cons

A few non critical changes will turn your computer into a non-genuine.

Summary

I had to restore my computer before I did the configuration and glad the info came back. After I made it show Windows something simple and restarted my computer started asking me that it was non-genuine every time I restarted my computer. So this Tweaker is not worth the trouble. I thought it would be great and there is a lot of good reviews but I won't risk going into limited mode. I'm not a beginner but this should not happen with the one tweak I made. Not recommended.

"Does well enough for Vista"

September 19, 2009  |  By Lord_Glorfindel

 |  Version: Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2.0

Pros

fairly good coverage of items many will want to tweak

Cons

not overly user friendly and lacks access to some very annoying Vista habits

Better than many - can't hurt to use it ... it's free.

"Alright after sorting out initial problems"

September 05, 2009  |  By grumpierone

 |  Version: Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2.0

Pros

Multiple tweaks

Cons

For some reason my computer seized up after install. After reboot everything worked ok

Summary

The only problem I have with the software is not knowing why it locked up to the point I had to remove the battery to shut the computer down. After reboot everything was alright. The computer is a fairly new HP so I doubt that was a problem. Maybe Vista just didn't like it ? Using the product since then it has preformed flawlessly.
