Vista tweaking


Vista4Experts is kind of a treat for computer experts who don’t want security center notifications, User Account Control dialogs, automatic Windows Defender scannings, automatic update installations (which cause you to reboot your system if you don’t react quickly enough). People who want MSDN (or google) set as default search engine in the Internet Explorer search bar, who want the start menu power button to shut down the system instead of hibernating it, etc. These and many more fixes are included in Vista4Experts. All of these changes can be discarded, enabled or reversed. Vista4Experts is the first expert utility of its kind and works on every platform.

WinBubble enables you to customize and tweak several Vista features, in particular the Bubbles screensaver, which cannot be customized from the screen saver settings dialog. With WinBubble, you can choose the type of bubbles and their size and optionally add a drop shadow effect. The program also allows you to customize the ribbon and Mystify screensavers, as well as shortcut icons, OEM information and the OEM logo. In addition to the visual tweaking features, WinBubble enables you to set a variety of security restrictions, such as disabling Taskmanager and Control Panel, hiding drives and disabling of Internet Explorer features among other things. It also allows you to activate a hidden Aurora boot screen in Vista.
