    Locked me out of links - outlook to explorer, witthin explorer. Keeps coming up with the message "the operaion has been canceled due to restricions in effect on this computer" Checked and re-checked all settings in Win7, Outlook and explorer - this is BADDD

    Contains USEFUL and non obvious tweaks only, unlike other programs with tons of crap.
    Kudos to the author for making a meaningful tool.

    Gets better and better with each release.
    Really great application.

    Change Log:
    October 1st, 2009

    - Program now tries to detect system locale.
    - Added option to Disable/Enable the Libraries folder under
    Windows 7. This is on the Win 7 Interface II page.
    - Added third Windows 7 Interface page with two new features:
    - New Regional Theme feature. This will enable regional themes
    for English versions of Windows 7. I've only tested this on
    the EN-US version of Windows 7.
    - New Regional Wallpaper feature. This and the above feature
    will add new items to the "Personalize" window.
    - Hid the old AutoRun disable function and added a newer and
    supposedly improved method for preventing programs (such as
    malware) from auto-running from external media such as USB drives
    or CD/DVD-ROMs. This is for XP/Vista/Windows 7.
    - Added link to 3rd party program to let you customize the Windows 7
    logon screen background. This on the UAC page under Windows 7.

    Shows some promise, but a long way to go - so far it contains only a VERY limited number of tweeks. As for the comments about it needing .NET, that's no different from a Java app requiring a Java runtime to be installed. I'm not aware that installing .NET is going to put XP users out at all - other than it taking such a long time to install of course.

    Aegis69 seems to have completely misread what this program does. The SafeXP program they recommend is for tweeking security settings - which as far as I can tell this program doesn't touch.
