    Power Toys for XP

    As many of you know MS in it's wisdom pulled Power Toys for XP off its site. (this had XPtweakUI and other goodies in it), because it gave the user to much control over certain aspects of XP. They updated TweakUI for 98,98SE, and 2000. So anyone that wants to still get a copy. You can get it here.

    http://www.windowsxp.nu/

    This is a nice site. It has every kind of addon and such for XP Home, Pro, and Office XP. I posted thid near the end of a thread some time ago. Since then I've had several people ask me about it. So I thought I'd post it in a thread to itself.

    I hope this helps you XPer's out there.

    Yup, tweakui is good stuff. On MS's homepage they say they're soon to be releasing a new improved version.

    Tru, very true. Sad thing is. When MS says improved. It usualy means more limited in function.

    Unfortunately, when you follow the link, scroll down the page to the xptweakui link, it points you to the Micro$oft site, where it's the old 404 error. Not your fault, tis on the web site.

    More limited, but fancier interface.

    That sucks. Just yesturday they had a link to the original TweakXP on their server. They must of had to take it down. Who knows. Still a good site though. Thanks for the info.
