Tweaking Windows is something of a mini cottage industry since the operating system quickly slows down once it's out of the box.
TweakNow PowerPack is another utility along those lines which lets you fine-tune every aspect of your computer's operating system and Web browser. It deals with everything from temp files to a memory manager which optimises your RAM by allocating spare slots to programs that need it most.
If you've got a power manager then you won't really need it but there's also an AutoShutdown program lets you suspend, hibernate, or shut down your computer after a specified period of time. In addition to saving resources, this simple function us designed to keep your PC more secure because as long as it's offline and switched off, it's obviously not vulnerable to attack.
However, probably the most useful features are the CD AutoRun function which works as an extension of Windows' CD and DVD autorun features and The Virtual Desktop program lets you run as many as four custom-designed desktop configurations simultaneously. With this tool, you can tailor your computer screen to your mood and work requirements - so for example, one for social needs and one for work.
As a way to both tweak and improve the working speed of your PC, TweakNow Powerpack packs a powerful punch.
