Windows 8 and 8.1 Reg Tweaks

Recommended Posts

No uninstaller. As I indicated in the HTML file that explains the tweaks, these modifications are mostly registry files, visual basic and AutoIt scripts with the extension ".TXT" appended to them so downloaders can examine the code before they execute the files. The legacy boot installer does have an "uninstall" routine for those that compile it and use the embedded registry file. For those who have accounts with the OP, there are more screens shots over there to show what the tweaks do.
