It was only a matter of time until Vista slowed down enough for it to need tweakers to keep it running at a decent speed again.
Thoosje Vista Tweaker is a free "professional" tweaking tool that's there to fill that gap and allows you to optimize various default settings in Vista.
With around 60 different tweaks, it's certainly not short of tweaking options although how many of these really make a difference is debatable.
However, you can go tweak crazy because the program performs a brief backup of your current settings in case the tweaks affect your system adversely.
The interface is extremely attractive and easy to use. A menu down the left side gives you options on which part of your system you want to optimize such as Internet Explorer, System UI or General Performance.
However, if you don't want to go through all of these separately, you can just perform all tweaks in one go. There's nothing more to it than that - just perform your initial backup, let it run and see if it's made any difference.
Note that some of the tweaks aren't really "tweaks" at all in the strict sense - they are more like shortcuts to things such as Vista system settings that normally, you may not have used or find difficult to access
A well designed tweaker with many optimization options and should make at least some difference to the performance of Vista.
