    "Ultimate Window Tweaker 2.2 for Vista WON'T WORK!"

    January 22, 2014  |   By nedro

    Version: Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2.2

    Pros

    Seems to work for me on Win7

    Cons

    Gets an Unhandled Exception when I tried to fix Missing Sys Tray Icons in Vista Home Premium

    Summary

    Ultimate Windows Tweaker for Vista DEFINITELY Needs Some Work!

    You got that Windows Club ???

    PS-I HATE using Download Manager BUT CNET's in dependable, does not really install a Manager, each executable IS the manager for that particular download. CNETs is the ONLY one I trust

    "Have to buy it for it to work"

    October 12, 2012  |   By tmkrause

    Version: Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2.2

    Pros

    N/A as there are no pros

    Cons

    Cost that you don't know about until after you've installed it and it won't do anything unless you buy it.

    Summary



    Updated on Oct 12, 2012

    SORRY, I was thinking of another program altogether. This program works great. Just what I needed to tweak my system so I like what I see. This should have gotten 5 stars and a positive review. I wish there was some way of redoing this revies. ARGH!

    "A bit lacklustre"

    September 29, 2012  |   By spartain

    Version: Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2.2

    Pros

    It's standalone - no installation required.
    Has a number of tweaks

    Cons

    Not enough features compared to the old TweakUI of Win98 & XP days.
    No explanation of the tweaks - this could be solved with hover-boxes containing the explanation.
    No Paging File tweak - a ridiculous omission.

    Summary

    Disappointing, and needs a lot more work. At the moment this is really just a geek toy.

    "Cure a few AWFUL Windows 7 headaches"

    September 14, 2012  |   By skajdlive

    Version: Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2.2

    Pros

    It is the only way to be rid of the terrible task bar pop-ups on Windows &. The whole world complains about them but nobody can get rid of them. Well this software does.
    And other handy tweaks aswell.
    Easilly accessible Windows tweaking control interface.

    Cons

    A bit basic. Hopefully it will be improved with more functions

    Summary

    Most of the tweaks - most but not all - Can already be done with your computer but this software presents them to you in a practical, easy to use/access/figure interface.

    However, the few most pleasing and needed tweaks (for me) are not available on my computer. This software has cured some huge headaches I had with silly stupid Windows 7

    Off topic I know but I think it's hilarious that a guy below clicked the wrong download button and got the cnet installer and went ballistic about it in block capitals ROFLLLLLL

    Updated on Nov 14, 2012

    I hate Windows7 so much. I changed my operating system to Vista home basic. I like Vista and the basic version is like a "blank canvas" without all the extras which I dont need.

    Can't use this software any more now that my OS is Vista basic. Many problems with this now. I don't use it any more ;(

    "Works great for all my needs"

    February 26, 2012  |   By bigbear639

    Version: Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2.2

    Pros

    Nice to get rid of those ugly shortcut arrow, put it an all my computers and have been using it ever since IE6. works on my older XP which can not use IE9 and worked on Vista and as well on W7.

    Cons

    Have not found any whatsoever, Just need to learn how to use all it's features rather than complain.

    Summary



    Updated on Feb 26, 2012

    If it wreaked havoc with your Computer you probably did not learn how to use it's features. No need to use some of the security if you are not familiar with it.

    "Doesn't work"

    October 29, 2011  |   By dangnad1

    Version: Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2.2

    Pros

    N/A - doesn't work from the git-go

    Cons

    This is mis-advertised software. It's not checked out not ready for WinVista nor Win7. Error message "Unhandled exception..."

    Summary

    There are numerous forum postings about this. It is unconscionable to release such crappy software. Someone needs to tweak the Windows Club right in the bum.

    "Needs Some Work"

    October 9, 2011  |   By David Brule

    Version: Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2.2

    Pros

    Has some great ideas to tweak your Windows system. Nice interface. Does let you fix things if they don't work so well.

    Cons

    It wreaked havoc with my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit system. Restarts became a chore on the Shut Down part. I must admit that I tried many things at once and cannot narrow down what caused the problem. I will not be trying it again soon.

    Summary

    I believe that the program has promise, but I also believe that programmers should run their own testing and not throw something out there for feedback and troubleshooting.

    But free software is far from the only type of programming that does this. So I would not fault them too badly.
