Which tweaking programs should I uninstall?

I currently have the following tweaking/optimizing programs installed. I only want to keep one or delete them all but am not sure which are good and which are bad?

The only thing I use is CCleaner for temp files and reg clean.

The idea is to keep your system clean.

Brink has a detailed tip that resumes what I also rcommend.

I will stipulate that using a tweak manager is convenient. I do not use one anymore.

For tweaks that are enabled/disabled via the registry, I use reg file merges. My tried and true, never install without 'em, are concatenated into a single file.

My collection is stored in a folder - and I keep the "remove tweaks" reg files there as well for troubleshooting purposes.

SF has a comprehensive collection of tweaks available in the Tutorials section.

Could you post your reg tweaks and possibly the reg file itself Antman?

I never use any tweaking programs any more. Experience has shown me that they get you into trouble. For the benefit of a possible small percentage better performance, I am not trading my peace of mind.

My particular reg file includes references to batch files that must be resident in your ..\System32 folder or ..\Program Files (x86). It includes much of what Zardoc's does.

Just compile your favorites and write them into a single file.

While some reg tweaks may affect certain aspects of network throughput or GUI response times, there is nothing available in the registry that will make a system faster. Your platform is what your platform is.

All of my reg tweaks deal with customizing the GUI for the inclusion of various file mgmt commands. I am currently working (unfocuded) on enabling my Ant_DOW.cmd in the context menu for certain file types (Ant_DOW assigns a unique file name based on the date string and then does some backup actions).
