WinXP Manager

CNET Editors' review

At some point, every computer user has watched her PC churn and wondered if there were some way to tune it up. Experienced hackers can get into the guts and do it themselves, but for ordinary computer users there are programs like WinXP Manager, which help tweak settings to speed performance, start-up, and shutdown.

The suite gives access to the inner workings of the XP operating system, including the Registry, file system, security settings, and details of the interface. The program's own compact interface effectively keeps this wealth of options organized, and an easy-to-use wizard helps guide new users through the initial process of optimizing the PC.

We recommend WinXP Manager to inexperienced computer users who want to boost the performance of their systems without digging into the internals.

    "Keep Looking...this one isn't good enough!"

    October 2, 2008  |   By GeaFmaN

    Version: WinXP Manager 5.2.8

    Pros

    The first thing I liked was the amount of different tweaks offered, there are simply LOADS of settings and things to customize and changed and tune up about your Windows experience with this software..(or so it seemed).

    Cons

    Not enough help/explanations-some utils have NOTHING written except their title?! Not stable/crashes too often.Software isn't good for beginners as it often doesn't give a final warning like 'YOU MIGHT WRECK SOMETHING!' before letting you click away!

    Summary

    Not enough room to tell all here but I'll try! For some reason after install, I would click on an icon to run one of the utilities and all that happens is an alert box saying 'The system cannot find the specified file'. This happened for more than 3/4 of the actual utilities in the program! This means that it was more than pathetic and had hardly any usefulness at all. I have since discovered that if I just run the installer again the error goes away. NOTE: I have had to do this a few times already, after each time I have used the program I have had the file not found error!? What is that all about? Strange..
    Apart from that what do I think of this program?
    well it really packs in the tweaks for sure, I have to give it that but, a tweak to your OS is a dangerous thing if you do not know what it is you are changing and this program just doesn't inform you enough at all.
    I even wondered if the makers know what some of the 'tweaks' are for themselves as they lacked any kind of explanation and just had a title. The performance increase was dubious on a few too, I don't mean on my PC I mean generally, there are a lot of supposed 'performance enhancing tweaks' known all over the net and, when you look into them and rad on Microsoft's' site you discover that some of them can actually SLOW the PC! Well this program has some of those type of 'tweaks' included!
    In general I would not recommend this program to anyone. No way for a beginner as it is too in-depth with little help and so much potential for screwing up your PC BIG-TIME!
    Not for an expert either (like myself..well, it is true!) as it simply irritates due to it's instability and the fact that so many of the utilities are just Windows built-in cmnd line utils or other built-in stuff. It isn't even more convenient to have them all in one place because hitting something into the windows RUN command is so much faster than waiting for this program to start up, waiting to see if it is going to work this time, or give the file not found error, then having it crash unexpectedly just as you were getting it to compact the registry or something that may well leave even you, the supposed expert, with an annoying mess to fix or clean up.
    AVOID this, it sucks.

    "BEWARE!"

    April 26, 2008  |   By pet2000

    Version: WinXP Manager 5.2.4

    Cons

    As with most 'intelligent' Windows managers which are causing more harm than good, this one is no exception. I installed this program and just relied on the default settings as per instructions. I lost my online connection, computer locked up. Luckily the program set a restore point and I managed to get my laptop going but still needed an expert to help me clear up the mess the program left behind. DEFINATELY NOT RECOMMENDED unless you are a computer expert which means you probably won't need it.
