Ive been trying to find a fix to get rid of the shortcut icon arrows on the homescreen icons and found ultimate windows tweaker. I have windows 7 64 bit ultimate by the way. So I downloaded it and ran the .exe file opened it up and the only checkbox in the whole program that was darked out was the "remove arrows" box. It wouldnt let mwe do it. What am I doing wrong? Ive rread other people with 64 bit have done this. If this wont work is there another way either by way of the registry or another way? please help.

Do you have admin powers on the machine?
Maybe you can run the tweaker as admin and see if it helps.
make sure you do not seperate out the contents of the downloaded tweaker folder and run the .exe from teh folder itself.
Works just fine on my x64.

I'm getting an error when trying to rename my computer in W7 64-bit Home Premium:
As far as I'm able to see there are no illegal characters in the Computer name.

sorry, I know that without apps like these, Windows 7 would be almost impossible to use... but I'm very disapointed... I see lots of "Unhandled exception"s and here I'm getting these too...
I think this application needs to be re-build from zero... lots lots lots of bugs... =/
but THANKS for this... I had spend hours trying to fix Windows 7 anoyiences... and then UWT was my final solution! ( Microsoft Windows 7 is soooo anoying.... )

I have UWT 2.1, Win7, X64, SP1 and IE8. When UWT runs, the 'Internet' option on the left side does nothing at all. What should it do, or does it not like IE9?

I have 2 problems with Ultimate Windows Tweaker:
1 - When I select (or unselect) any items in the Security Settings panel the following key is inserted in my Registry:
Windows Defender REG_EXPAND_SZ %ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe -hide
and then after logoff/logon the Defender window is opening.
2 - when I select Remove ''-Shortcut'' suffix for new shortcuts in the Additional Tweaks panel it is unselected the next time I open the UWT settings
I will be very happy to have these two problems solved because UWT is great tool.

Have just downloaded UWT 2.1, an excellent utility which I shall take great pleasure in exploring deeply.
However, like a previous poster I have discovered that the Internet Explorer "tab" does not open any screen and the very useful (for me) ability to make Windows use the full 4 Gig Ram on my 32 bit system seems to have no effect. (Selecting the option>Apply>Restarting: no change, only approx 3.25 is "seen"). Are these behaviours "normal"?
Win 7 Pro 32 Bit, 4Gig Ram, Intel Q9650, IE 9.0.3
Thanks for any help/guidance!

Using Ultimate Windows Tweaker V126.96.36.199 with win 7 gives more to tweak than I have knowledge of.
I still miss a feature.(or I didn't find it) I like to set keyboard keys to a personalised default.
Like NumLock on/of, Scroll lock on/of, Insert on/of
Would you consider this for a next release?
