In the latest LifeHacker “top five,” they looked at the top Windows 7 tweaking applications. These third-party utilities let advanced users edit, hack and tweak additional settings not available through the Windows UI as well as centralize other settings in one interface for easy access. Included in the round-up were apps like Rainmeter, Windows 7 Manager and others. But the one that came out on top was Ultimate Windows Tweaker, which earned 31% of the vote. (Rainmeter was a close second at 29%).
The Ultimate Tweaker application is like a supercharged TweakUI, says LifeHacker. It lets you customize a number of options in categories like security settings, IE, network tweaks, user accounts, system performance and more. Plus, you can’t beat the fact that the application is a completely free download. You can grab it here for both Windows 7 (32 and 64-bit) and Vista.
