SafeTweak XP Resource
SafeTweak XP Resource is a simple application that contains a database of information on how to make some adjustments to Windows XP by modifying the Registry entries.
It is primarily oriented toward users who are familiarized with Windows Registry, since you can end up damaging your system, otherwise.
After a brief installation procedure, you are greeted by a standard window with a simple layout. In the Overview section you can find out descriptions of predefined keys and values types in the Registry.
So, this program teaches you how to configure settings for the Control Panel area (e.g. disable Add/Remove Programs), desktop (e.g. hide the Recycle Bin shortcut) and Explorer (e.g. clear Run history).
But you can also tweak Internet Explorer (e.g. change the title, disable Favorites), system tools (e.g. disable Command Prompt, show a message on logon) and Window programs (e.g. enable MS Hearts cheat codes, active the Underline font in Notepad). SafeTweak XP Resource shows you the action and details for each section, as well as how to revert settings (for some of them).
The lightweight app does not put a strain on the computer's resources, since it needs a pretty low quantity of CPU and system memory. It has a good response time and worked smoothly in our tests, without hanging, crashing or popping up error dialogs. All in all, SafeTweak XP Resource provides a helping hand to all users who want to tweak their system through the Windows Registry section.
