A powerful suite of tools, System Workshop includes a Startup Manager, Disk Cleaner, Menu Editor, Windows Customizer, Icon Manager, and a Program Cleaner that you can use to customize the appearance and behavior of your computer, giving you more control over your system.

Windows Customizer is a tool to help you customize the appearance and behavior of your computer. For instance, you can easily change the Desktop icon size so they are easier to see. Windows Customizer can also optimize Windows settings to make your computer run faster, modify the "New" and "Send To" menus, and change various other settings to make Windows behave the way you want it to. Windows Customizer also allows easy access to the Add/Remove programs section of Windows. The Windows Customizer itself has many options that allow you to change:

  • Appearance
  • Performance
  • Internet Explorer Settings
  • Security
  • Network
  • Add-ons

Startup Manager - When you turn on your computer certain applications are automatically started at the beginning of each Windows session. Using the Startup Manager you can easily add to, remove, edit, disable, and enable any and all startup items in order to keep your system�s boot-up process as fast as possible.

Disk Cleaner - This powerful utility is designed to free up disk space by removing unnecessary and useless files. It's a fast and easy-to-use aid to extend the use of your hard drive. You only need to select the drives/folders you want to scan and choose the file types to scan for. Disk Cleaner offers several common waste file types to choose from, and allows you to add your own file types to the list as well. Once the scan process is complete, you're given the opportunity to edit the list; then you can choose to delete your selections or compress them as ZIP files.

Menu Editor - This handy tool is intended to aid in the easy customization of Explorer's Context (Right-Click) menus. Menu Editor facilitates the maintenance of context menu associations, allowing you to easily edit, remove, or create new entries. Menu Editor will allow you to gain control over which programs appear in context menus when you right click on various associated file extensions.

Icon Manager provides an easy interface for changing the common Windows icons. Tired of the standard icons for the Recycle Bin, or Network Neighborhood? Want to add some color to the folder icons, or add some zest to your Start Menus? Icon Manager comes with a library of alternate icons for a wide variety of Windows objects. Spiff up your display with a different look, Icon Manager makes it easy!

Program Cleaner helps clean up after programs that have been uninstalled. Some uninstall programs aren't well-behaved and don't "clean up" after themselves, leaving the program listed in the Windows "Add/Remove Programs" applet. Program Cleaner will locate these invalid uninstall entries, allowing you to permanently delete the unneeded listings. You can also use Program Cleaner to uninstall programs you no longer need - there are probably programs on your computer right now that you never use and didn't even know were there!
