WinXP Tweaking: From Relax to Righteous

By: Koroush Ghazi | Guides | Posted: Feb 8, 2003 5:00 am




Well there you have it. The sequel to the blockbuster Windows XP: Reformat to Relax gives your system the finishing touch to push it from Relax to truly Righteous. If you've followed my first guide closely, and taken the necessary tweaks out of this one, you should be one happy camper. You should have a fast, trouble-free machine which looks good and is easy to use. As always, if you're not completely satisfied with this guide, please email me and I will refund your money in full in 4-6 weeks.


I want to stress that I did not make up all the tweaks in this guide. I scoured the internet for them, researched their workings, pulled together the best ones, tested them and clarified the instructions for their usage. I am not for one second claiming that I invented these tweaks. So in that spirit I want to thank the following resources, and recommend them as an excellent place for you to go if you want to find many more Windows XP tips and tweaks:


Microsoft Knowledgebase


Black Viper's Website


Windows XP from A-Z


Windows XP - The Elder Geek


AExcel216's Windows Tricks




If you have any suggestions or comments on the guide, or tweaks you think should be included in it, please email me (click my name at the top of this guide), or drop into the TweakTown Windows Forum and discuss it with other Windows users. I really do listen to constructive criticism and I'll update this guide as often as necessary to make sure it's as accurate and comprehensive as it can be.


Finally, if you run the latest games (like UT2003, BF1942, America's Army, etc.) check out my tweak guides for such games under the Gaming heading on this page: TweakTown Tweak Guides. They're chock-o-block full of game-tweaking goodness.


Until next time take care!
