As Br!nk already mentioned, there are lots and lots of tools and features built into Windows.
If you are looking for some unknown tool to monitor, gather information, personalize etc. I'd recommend just to simply google it. (Sounds stupid but often gets you just that what you wanted)
What just came to my mind while writing this is: "Windows God Mode
". Basicly a centralized view of all the administrative options that are normally seen inside your control panel. Control Panel All Tasks List Shortcut
I hope this helps you a bit.
