PowerPack 2009 is a very sophisticated Windows operating system tweaker and information tool that offers that many options that it might intimidate inexperienced users.
Tweak programs are quite popular on Windows, as they allow users of the operating system to make multiple changes at once. Some of these are only accessible through the Registry or Group Policy otherwise, and tweak software improves how these tweaks are applied.
Note PowerPack 2009 was renamed to TweakNow PowerPack. The application is no longer free, but available for a one-time purchase price that includes lifetime upgrades. The application itself is compatible with all versions of the Windows operating system. The program interface has been modernized as well.
The interface divides the various options of the software program in modules. Available modules range from Windows operating system tweaks to a startup manager, track cleaner, disk usage analyzer and system information.
Individual modules can either offer a single function, for example cleaning the Windows Registry, or multiple pages like the Windows Secrets module which lists 11 functions that load in their separate windows each.
The tool combines many commonly used system maintenance tools in its interface which makes it an interesting option for users who like to control their computer system from one software program instead of multiple applications. Below is a small overview of the available modules and their core features:
A backup is created before any changes are made to the operating system. PowerPack 2009 is available for 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows XP and Windows Vista.
