Sorry to hear that.  I've installed TweakUI on every Windows computer 
I've been forced to use for at least this decade, and never had a 
problem I can attribute to it.  YMMV I guess...

As you say, all it does is tweak the Registry.  But that makes me think 
of the old joke for the invoice for $50,000.50 from the retired employee:
	$0.50	hammer spot
	$50,000	Knowing what spot to hammer on

If you or anyone would like to continue this thread, I'm happy to, but 
please move it over to the PANTUG list where it is more on-topic.

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
