TweakNow Powerpack 2010 is a utility pack targeted and designed for the maintenance of your operating system and Internet browsers. However, the utilities that deal with the operating system part need to be improved, since they do not do well on the cleaning side of it.

The very first home screen is a gift for novice users, showing just the tool that you will probably be using the most - a registry and file cleaner. It is like a single-click fixing tool. However, TweakNow Poewrpack 2010 also offers you many more miscellaneous tools to enhance your operating system’s performance. Thus, you can configure an automatic shutdown, check the running processes, decide on the CD/DVD autorun defaults, edit the configuration files, and work with multiple desktops.

The program can also get more technical, offering you important data concerning your OS, showing you your system Information, including hardware configurations. This will be helpful when you need to upgrade your memory, or when checking your drivers. Apart from the hardware information, it also has a Windows set of tools, which can be helpful to analyze the sizes of its directories, to tweak the startup, a tracks cleaner to empty your browser’s trails, and a nice shredder to delete files securely.

However, it is important to note that, even though this application offers some nice tweak and maintenance tools, it happens to crash frequently. The program is not even capable of send the crash report back to the developer automatically when crashing, which is certainly a downside of the program.
