Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

hmm got errors after installing this and running it.

The Tweak-7 System Service is not running, and all attempts to start the service failed. Re-installing Tweak-7, or running Tweak-7 with admin rights might fix the issue. Cannot Continue.
Im using the built in administrator account lol and why does it need a service?

Error: File does not exist. Cannot create IniFile.
So Im afraid this is coming off.
