Publisher's Description

X-Setup Pro is a so-called "hacker" or "tweaker" program. It allows you to change 1,900 settings that are normally hidden deeply in some configuration-files like the registry fast and easily. It's runs on any Windows version, is clutter-free, easy to use, extensible, powerful, covers any aspect of your computer and has more configuration options than any other tweaker.

Xteq X-Setup Pro 6.6 was the long-standing "final free" version that was retained free for loyal users who loved the original freeware program, arguably the very best of all XP (and earlier) tweak machines.

Although 6.6 was always available, paid-for versions—with apologies for no longer being free—continued through XQDC 9.2.100 (June 2010).

X-Setup was always meticulously prepared and its myriad available tweaks were cross-referenced and annotated. It was truly a beautiful program, the epitome of freeware produced for the love of creativity. The developers were always personable and quite emotional in their close relationships with end-users.

As of Sept 2012, I still include both Xteq X-Setup 6.6 as well as XQDC X-Setup Pro 9.2.100 operational in my Windows 7 64-bit OS, not so much because I need them as simply a gesture of "keeping the faith" in the best of the best.

Functionality is great, as is the comprehensiveness, but there really hneeds to be an optionallowing you to see each tweak only ONCE in classic view. Two many of the tweaks qualify to appear in multiple categgories, and so they are duplicated again and again as you work your way down the tree.

If you don't like this point me to something better, because i have yet to find anything as detailed and simple to use.

I don't understand the negative drivel...

I'm a tweak hound-- both manually and with a ton of different apps...and I:

still found plenty of tweaks(for Vista mind you)in XSetup that are not found in other apps.

¿Would i pay $15? Hemmmm, hawwww.....

1. I would love to see 'prolificness for Vista', as befits traditional XSetup reputation. However, that's not such a black stain-- given everyone else's still dealing with Vista's relative newness and numerous still-uncorrected defficiencies / quirks. AAANNNDD:

2. Keeping up with the third-party apps of TODAY-- some of which have now been around too long for XSetup not to be dealing with.

If XSetup folks wish to monetize, then work up something for the business side: the other Win OS & apps they use-- particularly those which have some crossover personal use.... new hardware technologies....

XSetup is NOT doing anything wrong to merit negative ratings...it just needs to do more...it's become a victim of its early success generating such high expectations. A good though unrelated analogy is Google-- an absolute cash cow suffering from an undeserved deflated share price.

At one time this was at the top of the tree among tweaking but these days it can be considered an alsoran.
A clumsy interface does nothing to help.

This program is the best of its kind, but lost 3 stars because of its horrendous installation procedures.

There's absolutely NO REASON why this application needs to spread itself all over your computer.

For example:

INSTALLATION:
*System: xqdcXSPApplet.cpl
*To Local settings Data folder: "items" folder containing ***1002*** FILES. Yes, one THOUSAND.
*Application folder: 16.1 MB of application files.

I encourage all of you to rigorously boycott this program until the author allows you to save all of the files to ONE folder and doesn't use the registry to save its own setting ;(

Shazbad! We've descended into a plethora of utter review 'uselessability'.

To sum up the general consensus re X-Setup thru the years:

1. So many tweaks abound that one can use this app for a long time before getting to each and every tweak.

2. Very important in light of 1: no reports of even minor bugs in all these years...much less of any significant system damage.

3. Tweaks applied can be saved auto-saved en masse & ported over to another computer/unattended setup.

4. Tweakers & developers are further taken care of with ability to see which/how pertinent registry key is modified and further- able to modify current plugins or create new one.

Beaucoup reviews over the years have just gushed over X-Setup...to the point that countless freeware-only advocates state they willingly fork over the few dollars to purchase this app.

If this app does not deserve a 5, then i don't know which one in the entire universe would... plus: all direct competitors- much, much smaller & many rated 4/5- would then have to be rated 1/2 just based on providing so many less features & tweaks.

I do however, have a couple of concerns re Vista-- in light of it NOT being freeware AND upgrades included for one year only:

Until an extensive number of Vista tweaks are included AND a warning inserted into the regular tweaks that won't work on Vista(esp. for those that can cause system issues), i would extend the free trial period until...even if only for Vista systems-- either: install routine can detect OS version & apply different trial period, or easier: designate it Beta & allow it to install on Visa with NO expiration, as folks w/ Vista would want to subsequently get the version with tweaks for their OS, portability to vLite, etc.
From a promotional / marketing / increased sales viewpoint, THAT is what would make total sense.

Because you can rate it without having to post a review.

BTW, how can you rate it without using it???

(My rate is to compensate your number)
