Tweak Me: Easily Optimize and Fix Windows Problems

A good tuning and tweaking tool can eliminate existing Windows problems, increase your machine's performance and frees storage space for you. Tweak Me is such a little, free tweaking and tuning tool for Windows (Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and 8) that includes a tweaking module, tuning module, startup module and context menu module and lets you creates System Restore Points for maximum security.

The tweaking module helps you increase your system’s performance by tweaking Windows settings. For example, you can easily disable Windows Error Reporting feature, search Indexing, UAC with this tool. It offers 172 tweaks, which greatly improve your system's performance and stability.

The tuning module helps you wipe out all temporary files and unwanted data including flash cookies from your computer in a quick and reliable manner.

The startup module lets you easily disable unnecessary start up entries from Windows start up and lowers your machine’s boot time.

The context menu module helps you remove unnecessary items from the context menu (right click menu) and make it clean. It also helps you speed up right click menu by removing useless context menu items.

Verdict: Though the tool has an easy to use interface, for an inexperienced user it is little difficult to decide which one is needed to select to enhance his or her system's performance. However, the application shows the tweaks in different colors (green, orange, red) to show whether a tweak is recommended or should only be applied by people who know what they are doing.
