Windows 7, like any other Microsoft operating system, has lots of hidden settings and options that can be used to tweak the operating system to increase the performance or improve the functionality of it.
Tweaking applications like Mz 7 Optimizer are the preferred way of many Windows users to apply those tweaks. While it is theoretically possible to apply them all manually, it often requires deeper knowledge of the operating system and research on the tweaks. Not to mention the time it takes to apply multiple tweaks manually.
Mz 7 Optimizer is a sophisticated tool to apply tweaks to Windows 7. The program suggests to create a backup of the Windows Registry on first startup. Users should accept that for an option to restore the Registry in case tweaks go bad. While it is unlikely that they do, it is always a good idea to have a way to restore a previous state of the operating system.
The main interface of the program is divided into a left sidebar, that links to tweaking categories like performance, Internet or security tweaks and other tools offered by the software. Each category contains multiple tabs at the top that group the tweaks further.
The Internet tweaks category for instance lists network tweaks, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, each with their own distinct tweaks.
Tweaks are not explained in the program interface, but in the help that is linked from the header of the program. It takes some time to find the right information in the help file as the program does not link directly to the help topics on the active page. To find out what Disable NTFS Paging File Encryption does in the Hard Disk Tweaks tab of Performance Tweaks, users would have to click on the Help button at the top, then on Tweaks > Performance Tweaks > Hard Disk Tweaks to see the answer.
A direct help, for instance with an overlay would be very helpful. Users who are in a hurry or know what they are doing can use an automatic optimizer to optimize Windows 7 with a few clicks. This is done by selecting how the computer and Internet connection should be optimized:
Mz 7 Optimizer offers several other interesting options, for instance a link to the ultimate Control Panel. This special control panel links to all Control Panel options from a single page.
The program links to several additional tools and applications in the Useful tools section. Users find programs to optimize the CPU and computer memory, clean and defrag the PC, manage startup items or a shutdown scheduler.
