Editors' Review

XP-Utilities provides a suite of features to optimize your computer and easily alter Windows XP settings, but it's not an ideal tool for novice users.

The basic interface displays large icons representing each optimization tool, though you also can access each tool via the Back and Forward buttons. Like other tweaking programs, this one helps you change the look and behavior of your Windows XP. You easily can disable desktop icons, wallpaper, and Start Menu options. Altering Windows' log-in behavior is easier through this utility. A RAM booster is included to free extra memory, although we found no dramatic increase in our computer's speed. The application's privacy tool quickly clears traces from common Windows system areas and Web-surfing histories, but neglects all browsers save Internet Explorer. It also lacks a secure file-shredding tool for erasing confidential traces. A simple password protection feature makes it easy to protect your settings.

However, XP-Utilities lacks a very important settings backup tool to enable users to test changes without fear. Testers should note this application doesn't include an uninstaller or add an entry to Windows' Add/Remove Programs. Novices should stay clear of this application, as a greatly needed help file is missing and many setting changes could damage desktop usability. With its comprehensive approach, we think this utility is best geared toward administrators and computer technicians.

"Maybe someday."

July 11, 2006  |  By 19monty64

 |  Version: XP-Utilities 0.1

Pros

Sort of a configuration-manager and ram-boosting app... provides a shortcut to security center, windows settings, firewall traffic, start-up menu, IE settings,etc. Has file and cookie cleaning. Also a ram optimizer. I guess it could replace TaskManager, CCleaner and RamBoost but....

Cons

........applied settings and re-started XP-Util. and the settings were "forgotten" ..........pointer over tray-icon made icon disappear ............ram-opt. was mediocre .......no help-files available yet ......and most importantly, DOES NOT COME WITH UNINSTALLER, IS NOT IN CONTROL-PANEL LIST OF APPS., COULDN'T UNINSTALL THRU CCLEANER OR HIJACKTHIS AS IT DID NOT SHOW UP ON APP.-LIST THERE EITHER....... HAD TO MANUALLY UNINSTALL + REGEDIT + SYSTEM RESTORE. MAYBE SOMEDAY THIS WILL BE A GOOD DOWNLOAD BUT NOT TODAY!!!!!!!!!!

"I LOVE THIS PROGRAM"

July 11, 2006  |  By prettiesformetoo

 |  Version: XP-Utilities 0.1

Pros

has everything i could possibly need as a rookie to tweak with confidence. doesn't get better than this.

Cons

it would be cool if it went thru my running processes and just ended the ones I didn't need automatically. But this is still the best I've found for much needed system utilities help.
