XdN Tweaker is a simple-to-use yet powerful program that allows you to make some modifications to your operating system. In order to work with this tool, you must have administrative rights.
The interface of the app consists of a common window with a well-organized layout where you can view system information and launch the User Account Control (UAC) panel, for instance.
So, you can change the appearance of your icons by applying the blank or XP style overlay, as well as remove the "Send To" and "Shortcut To" entries from the Explorer context menu and integrate the "Copy To Folder", "Move To Folder" and "Take Ownership" options.
In addition, you can disable the autorun.inf file and regional Windows 7 themes, adjust the mouse hover timeout, remove the current user's program associations for the selected file extension, as well as set the number of simultaneous IE connections to a server, just to name a few.
The program requires a moderate quantity of CPU and system memory, has a good response time and worked smoothly during our tests, without causing the operating system to freeze, crash or display error notifications; we have not come across any issues.
On the other hand, many features available via XdN Tweaker can be found by default in the operating system; the app merely provides a shortcut to them (e.g. configure IE settings and Windows performance options). Nevertheless, XdN Tweaker provides some user-friendly features for making the operating system fit your preferences.
