    What is Win7Zilla?

    Win7Zilla is a maintenance utility designed exclusively for Windows 7. Since Windows 7 was just released in October 2009, the developer was using beta and release candidate versions of Windows 7 to write the software.

    It is a security and tweaking software that will provide system maintenance operations. One important effect is that changes do not require a reboot.

    'WinZilla provides six links where you can change windows settings. Let's look at each of these links.

    In this window you can perform several tasks like disable Aero Shake (if you have several windows open, by shaking the top one, you close all of them.)

    Or you can hide the Recycle Bin, disable desktop gadgets, and restrict users from modifying their user profiles.

    Internet Explorer

    Because the browser, Internet Explorer, is one of the most important pieces of software on the computer to connect to the Internet, modifying its features can help the user by giving additional control that is not normally seen on the browser menu.

    How Does WinZilla Perform?

    Many of the features in WinZilla will appeal to techno-admin types. But they put in one location many features that are normally found in disparate parts of Windows7.

    The software is designed to offer hundreds of tweaks. These include Windows7 Settings, optimizing Physical Memory (RAM). Other important tweaks are that you can clean the registry, and clean the PC of temporary files. If you have a gaming computer you can boost gaming performance. You can change the Windows 7 start-up, including the logon screen and OEM and user information.

    You don't have to reboot to get the changes to take place, and it offers you a way to see what settings have been implemented.
