It's explained as a bragging tweak,

Fake your Specs is a program that allows you to type custom specifications, and view the custom settings in a realistic window that looks just like windows system properties window! This is useful if you want to trick people into thinking you have a better computer than you really do.
You got to be kidding me. Right.
Nope, that's all it does.

Welcome to the Seven Forums, Bradley74.

Changing certain computer properties might cause problems when installing software.

I've seen Windows 7 Service Pack 8. In fact, I've made that SP property modification myself; but only inside a virtual machine - where I could do no harm.

I don't know of any software that could safely do these mods for you. Be careful in your hunt for such tools.

Well this is an open forum, so people are curious.

That being said, you may just have to wait a bit for someone to see your thread and possibly post something you are looking for.

There have been a few people visit these forums claiming to have W7 SP3. I wondered how they were seeing SP3 in their system properties - so I researched it.

Make a manual system restore point before working in the registry.

If you change much more than that, you could hose your entire computer. You really should look into experimenting inside a virtual machine where you can do no harm.

Bradley74 my post were not intended to be argumentative.
I was curious because I have never heard of such a thing.

Of course you can do as you see fit with your own computer. Many people change many things in their computers.

I personally won't guide someone to do anything to their computer if I think it may harm their computers. We try not to do that on this forum.
Changing system properties may very well harm your system in my opinion so I will leave it to other with more knowledge than I to give suggestions.

PS: We seldom see request like yours so some curiosity arose.

I do agreed with yous that change anything inside the system properties might causes unexpected harms or errors.

Certainly I totally understand your curiosity and I don't have anything to do to against to that. Not at all. Please don't think too much. I know you are kindly to help and just don't wish to see others getting harmed.

I am just in the hope of someone experienced enough to teach us on how to make those changes inside the system properties, and I believe that is not a impossible thing to do.

Lets wait and see if anyone does know how to. As I said before I am not in the rush of doing it, its just I found this and I thought I would love to give a try at least.

I don't think it actually changes properties, just what is displayed as a joke.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

I think you'll find some of that information in the basebrd.dll.mui in C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd\en-US\ (you may have to substitute your country instead of en-US)
