Ideas for Windows 7 Tweaking Utility!

I am Developing a Windows 7 only Tweaking Utility that will help you do All sorts of tweaking stuff. Examples of what it will do is like removing the Shortcut arrow or Changing the Logon screen and stuff like that.

The only problem is that I don't know what kind of problems you guys have with your computer that you think would be good in a tweaking utility. So just post your problems in this Thread (Maybe with solutions as well) and I will try to implement it into the program!

Thanks,
Andrew Turner

EDIT 1: Yes it will be free and Open Source. Unfortunately you will need the .Net Framework to run it but don't let that lower your poll score for the application. Just tell me that you don't like that.

Fine, as long as you don't charge money for it. There are too many people trying to capitalize on "Windows 7 tweaks" already.

There already are several such programs for 7 you might want to take a look at. One free one is the "Ultimate Windows Tweaker."

Here's a screenshot from one of its menu sections:

Don't you worry! It will be free and Open Source, so people can build on it! Just consider it the Ant-hill that built the Mountain!

As far as I am concerned, there is only one really bad function that has been left out of Win 7.

Win 7 will not remember individual window size and position.

It does for me, but I've heard a lot of people complain about this same issue. Unfortunately, I don't know what the resolution is or why it works properly for me and not for others.

It may have something to do with the type of Windows 7... I will look into it!
Any other problems??
