X-Setup Pro 9.2.100
The ultimate 'tweaker'. X-Setup allows you to change settings that are normally hidden deeply in Windows for free.
The mother of all tweaker
X-Setup Pro is a so-called "tweaker" program; it allows you to change settings that are normally hidden deeply in Windows fast and easily. There are many hidden settings in Windows as well as in a lot of other programs and normally you can't change them.
X-Setup Pro knows 2,000 of these settings and displays them in an easy to use interface, grouped by several aspects (Figure 1). Simply choose what you want to tweak, select the setting in question, make your change and hit the "Apply" button. It's that easy.
Even if you normally not consider changing hidden settings since you simply want to have your computer up and working, give X-Setup Pro a try. It includes some settings that fix some of the glitches found in Windows and other programs. You fret the massive Balloon tips that suddenly appear in Windows XP? Easily turn them off with X-Setup Pro. Your homepage in Internet Explorer does not stick? You have been homepage-hijacked - fix it with X-Setup Pro.
Not only does X-Setup Pro offer all these settings, it has been created with the requirements of the user in mind. For example, Windows does not include any program that allows you to control all aspects of the computer startup, like which programs should be started automatically, how does the login window should look like etc. X-Setup Pro includes the Startup/Shutdown category which includes every aspect of the startup or shutdown process and allows you to take finally control over it (Figure 3).
