AeroTweak is an option-filled tweaking app for Windows 7

A while back, I ran down a list of 7 tweaking apps for Windows 7. One more worth knowing about is AeroTweak, a fully-portable Windows tweaking app which allows you to modify and disable a wide range of features.

AeroTweak lets you painless flip the switch on things like AeroShake, taskbar thumbnails, and low disk space notifications. It also provides one-click disabling of autoruns on all your drives, which is a nice way to enhance your system's security (what with all those worms spreading from infected USB flash drives).

It's also a bit like a gpedit.msc (the policy editor included in professional versions) replacement for Windows 7 home edition systems -- which means those of you who want to quickly lock down things like Task Manager, Control Panel, and registry editing can use AeroTweak to do it quickly via a neatly-organized gui.
