    Awesome program...

    Want to tune and tweak your computer with settings that are normally
    hidden deep inside your registry ? Instead of wading through settings
    XenTweak can install all in one settings - saving a lot of time.
    XenTweak differs from other tweak programs because it tweaks the most
    common and tested settings. It also tweaks some settings never before
    seen in other tweak programs. XenTweak is only about 200k in size and
    it will increase your systems efficiency and performance.

    when I try to open the xen app. I recieve a message as follows:
    C:\WINNT\system 32 exe
    C:\winnt\system 32\autoexec.nt
    This system file is not suitable for running MS DOS and MICROSOFT WINDOW APPLICATIONS
    CHOOSE CLOSE TO terminate application.

    what could be the matter?
    p.s. I recieve the same error message when usuing PC pitstop,however if I click ignore at PC pitstop the app, continues to run
    PC Intel 600
    windows 2000 pro as operating platform.
    thank you in advance for your help.

    The " Xen " sounds like a good program also.

    Have you used either one?

    There are different .bat files for each operating system. Mobo, make sure you run the correct one.. Bats, I have no idea why you're getting the error message, works fine on all the PC's I've tried..

    Yes, I have and do use both Zen and Zentweak and can tell you, "In my opinion, they are both awesome". After tweaking all my systems by hand, I run ZenTweak and install all the tweaks, and I can tell a definate preformance and security boost. It even detects and removes some virus's and spyware. It has built in fixes for common problems, like taskbar missing, and CD-roms not showing. You are going to be very impressed useing this one.. ;)

    PMFJI, Hi gotrootdude, I went to that site, and first downloaded XEN, and ran it, it freed up 83mb on my hd, and seems to be fairly easy to navigate. I then downloaded Xentweaks, but when I went to Winzip to unzip it askes me to confirm file overwrite/Replace file/C:unzipped\xentweaks\commands\CHOICE.COM 6kb 3/9/02 8:45pm, with file CHOICE.COM 6kb 3/9/02 8:45pm, and then underneath it has Yes, yes to all, no, cancel, help. if I click on yes, or no, it goes to another window wanting me to confirm another file overwrite, and then several others after that. Kind of confused should I yes to all, or no. Have never had Winzip ask me to confirm file overwrite. Any hints or ideas appreciated.

    Regards

    May find it better to create a folder first to zip it to after downloading it..

    Thanks for the replys McTimson, and mobo, don`t ask me how it did it, but when I went to my hd to look at xen again, all of a sudden right next to it was xentweaks, don`t know how it got there, but it seems to be functioning, may be just a glitch in Winzip, don`t know. Thanks for the help.
