I used "TweakUiPowertoySetup" for Windows XP.   This tool contained some neat features.

I just upgraded to Windows 7 (I had some security issues).   I'm more conscientious now about downloading/installing programs.  

Does anyone know if there's an equivalent to "TweakUiPowertoySetup" for Windows 7?   And if yes, is it safe to use?

    I downloaded and tested "The Ultimate Windows Tweaker" ... it is very basic but nice.
    They call it the TweakUI replacement.

    Hi EEH

    Microsoft Stopped supporting the TweakUI tools after Windows XP but there are many third party aps out there that can be very useful and reliable.  

    One such tool that may be of assistance is produced by a Microsoft MVP and i have been using it with great success, called Ultimate Windows Tweaker.

    Perfect!    Thanks.

    I allocated the points on a first-come, first serve basis.  Still, I wanted to recognize both answers.   I hope that's ok.
