Fixes and Tweaks for Windows

We are often asked how do I speed up my pc? Computing should be fun as well as productive, and whenever possible it should be both. With a little easy tweaking, you can repair or tailor your computer to suit your needs and come away with a sense of satisfaction from the endeavor itself.

Many of the customizations described in this section require at least some degree of modification to your standard settings. Before you read even one more sentence, make absolutely certain that you know How To Back Up and Restore Your Registry. We suggest a complete backup before implementing any of these tweaks.

PC911 would like to thank all the contributors who have made this section possible, however two contributors deserve special mention. Scotterpops, who created this section and started collecting all these neat tweaks, and Steve Yandl, who developed most of the programs you’ll find in this section, all of which are designed to aid you in shaping a more enjoyable, reliable and efficient computing environment — and they are all freeware.

Customizations
Here at PC911, we firmly believe that computing should be fun. Yes, it should be productive and all that, but why not get under the hood and make a few modifications.

How do I uninstall Finally Fast by Ascentive from my computer? The method of removing programs from programs and features has prevented me from removing this program from my computer. I am thinking of suing Ascentive for doing this as a class action lawsuit as Ascentive didn’t inform me and others this program can’t be removed once it’s been installed which is in violation of the written contract between Ascenntive and Microsoft. I will be contacting Microsoft regarding this and if there is a breach of contract between Ascententive and Microsoft, Microsoft will probably terminate the contract and provide a fix so Finally Fast will be able to be removed.
