"Configuring and optimizing Windows"

Overview

If you are a power user, then the first then you might do after a fresh windows install is to tinker around registry settings and setting up Windows to fit your needs. This can be anything from customizing the user interface for Windows to general hardware settings and the general user environment. This requires careful modification of the registry, which can be confusing and dangerous for Windows. Fresh UI is a software that attempts to make the whole process relatively simple and safe.

Installation

The setup package is only 1.5MB in size and takes only a few seconds to download. The installation process is very simple and straightforward and is finished within a few steps. No attempt to install adware with the software is made. Fresh UI is compatible with all major versions of Windows which includes 7, XP and Vista and is not compatible with any other OS.

Interface

Fresh UI has a very simple and intuitive user interface. Everything is laid down neatly in a UI that is both modern and easy to get around. On the left is a pane that lists down all registry entries and other entries, which the program allows you to modify. Each of these entries is further categorized for example Windows Explorer, Windows Interface, Network Settings, Interface etc. While the program is not meant for beginners, even they will find it easy to navigate around and glance at different settings.

Pros

Fresh UI gives the user total control over various aspects of the Windows OS. It supports Windows applications, hardware, windows explorer, network settings as well as start up settings. While you can access all these from within Windows, that process is both confusing and dangerous as no back up options are provided. Fresh UI has a built in back up support which can come in handy in case of incorrect settings. Some of the things Fresh UI gives you control over your CPU which includes L2 Cache optimization and Windows CPU priority. For networking you have full control over the TCP/IP stack of Windows and various other network settings. It even gives you control over the UI for example if you want certain settings in the control panel of Windows hidden, then with a simple click of a button Fresh UI will do that for you. Apart from these there are various other aspects of Windows which you can modify to your liking.

Cons

Fresh UI is strictly aimed at professional or advance users. While everything is laid down in a neat UI, Fresh UI does not provide you any information regarding all the various registry settings you can alter. To cater to a larger audience, the software should come with a built in help system that provides you all the information regarding every aspect of the system you can control through this program.

Alternatives

The built in registry manager for Windows provides you with all options that are available in Fresh UI. However Fresh UI allows you to backup all your settings as well as lay each setting down in different categories to make them easier to find.

Conclusion

Fresh UI is an excellent software for all your Windows modification needs. It provides you complete control over various aspects of your system in an intuitive UI.
