Microsoft has increased both the power and complexity of its popular Windows operating system with the release of Windows Vista. Stardock’s TweakVista enhancement application helps you configure Windows Vista to meet your personal needs by improving performance.
Unlike other power tools for Windows, TweakVista automatically prompts enhancement recommendations, offering easy “one click” updates to otherwise complex configuration changes. TweakVista is also safe to use. By utilizing Microsoft’s system-restore technology any changes you make can easily be rolled back.

TweakVista is a software tool for Windows Vista that allows modification of various OS-specific functions, most notably the settings surrounding the Desktop Window Manager, User Account Control and startup programs. The first beta versions were released in July 2005, with a complete overhaul released in June 2007. It is made by Stardock and co-distributed by Advanced PC Media LLC.
