Stardock is excited to announce the release of Tweak7!  Tweak7 is an application designed to help users meet their personal needs by configuring Windows 7 to improve and enhance performance.  Tweak7 was created with both casual and power users in mind.  Changes made can be easily rolled back using Microsoft own system-restore technology, so experimenting with different settings is harmless to your PC.

What’s new:

  • Remove common, annoying dialogs – Windows is full of dialogs that are unnecessary.  Tweak7 lets you select and disable the most common ones.
  • Move user directories – Windows sets the default location of all user documents and settings to the C drive.  Tweak7 allows you to move your files or any other user’s files to another location; even another drive.  This can greatly improve transportability and backup options.

Current features:

  • Security (User Access Control) Management - Tweak7 has easy to configure security settings for managing the new security features of Windows 7. Other security settings can also be configured with one-click. If you've found some of the security prompts in Windows 7 getting in your way, Tweak7 offers relief.
  • Start-Up Manager - See what programs are being launched on start-up (even ones that you may not be aware of) and quickly find out what they are doing and whether you need them. By utilizing the startup monitor built into Windows 7 to analyze problems; processes that take longer to start or shutdown are flagged for review.
  • Recommendations - Automatically evaluate all aspects of your Windows 7 configuration with detailed, yet easy to understand, suggestions provided to help you get more control over your Windows 7 PC.
  • Process Identification - Leveraging the community, users can read and create information regarding each process currently running. When a user clicks on a program name Tweak7 returns information about that process to help in deciding what to leave running and what to shut off.
  • Performance Optimization - Tweak7 knows all the default services on Windows 7 and many of them are not needed for most people. Tweak7 can safely guide users through common user configurations to optimize performance and memory use.
  • Internet Optimization - Tweak7 can improve your Internet surfing performance by changing the underlying Internet settings on Windows 7 to fit the capabilities of your PC.
  • Cost of Use and Carbon Footprint Analysis - Tweak7 calculates the cost of running your PC. In addition a Carbon Footprint index is calculated. How "Green" is your PC?

Tweak7 is available with a subscription to Object Desktop, or stand-alone for $19.95.  More information is available at www.tweak7.com.

I'll tell ya ID, I want to snag this.  But the TweakVista changes within the program ceased taking effect after reboots.

Tweak registered it as off, but the process list sung another story.

i tried the free release last night...

tbh i was a little underwhelmed (obviously i can't access all features) as it only seemed to do things i could already do else where in the OS with a little googling.

that and the eco-calcualtor thingy needed me to manually input my various devices though some of these were automatically detected elsewhere in the program.

it is nice that it's all done in one place but $19.95 nice i'm not too sure.

maybe a better explanation of those bits i can't access would help...
