Besides LINUX and UNIX system i also happen to know some good Windows Tools that everyone should have in their PCs
Note the following tools only works in Windows XP
1)TuneXP From Driver Heaven Final Version no other updates 3 Mirrors list below
This nifty little tool provides a simple and non intimidating GUI to activate some functions in Xp to speed it up. Although it is possible to activate the tweak from Windows Registry often i find it too tedious to do it manually not mentioning the possibilty of messing up your Registry.
It is small in size, freeware and most tweaks works especially the faster shutdown function. However the usefulness of the ultrafast booting really leave much to be desired. Anyway it is really a useful tool even for non tech savy users.
2)Themes for Windows XP
I know some really good free themes on the net. They are 1)FREE 2)NO SPYWARE/ADWARE/MALWARE I SCANNED them myself 3)LOW ON SYSTEM RESOURCES USAGE 4)UNINSTALLS WITHOUT SCREWING UP YOUR SYSTEM
1) BricoPacks from CrystalXP contains Light Vista looks KDE looks Longhorn Looks
2) FlyKiteOSX from http://osx.portraitofakite.com contains Mac OS X for PC users
3) Alienware theme from Alienware (a high performance PC vendor) It is not exactly freeware because it contains WindowsBlind Software which is not free BUT this edition is free intended for Alienware customers. I am not their customers but oh well it is free anyway...
