    Tweak UI is for Windows XP only. I've used it for years. It's a Microsoft product, although not supported nor subjected to the same rigorous testing provided for the operating systems. It doesn't do anything you couldn't do yourself in the registry or in the Group Policy editor. Harmless, IMHO. I have never tried Ultimate Windows Tweaker v 2.2, so I can't vouch for it, but it seems to be a Microsoft application as well. With a lot more features than Tweak UI, there might be more potential for problems.

    I just downloaded UWT and tried it. First off, I only changed one thing. I checked the bullet for "Administrator"

    which I should have been anyway. When I restarted, It came up with a log-on window, and my desktop was totally different. I did a system restore and deleted the UWT. ( BTW: I ran UWT from a thumb drive.)



    Second, I wanted an easy way to reassign my drive letters. TweakUi did that in XP. I couldn't find any way to do that in UWT.



    Guess I'll just do my drive reassigning the old way.

    These are for occasional devices, like thumb drives for backup. I want the drive letters to be the same so I can automate the copy routines of 3 different files.
    I created a Batch File to copy from C: drive to the thumb drives. Makes backing up a couple of dbbl-clk's .
