The TweakGuides Tweaking Companion (TGTC) is the complete system optimization guide for Windows users. Designed for novice and advanced users alike, it is written in plain English to help you genuinely understand all aspects of Windows and your PC. The guide covers every major topic, from the correct installation of Windows and critical drivers and software, through to recommendations for every significant setting and feature, all the major performance and convenience tweaks and customizations, as well as detailed troubleshooting advice. There are also links to a range of reliable free applications for optimizing and maintaining your system, as well as to important resources for finding out even more about Windows and your PC.
Regular vs. Deluxe Edition: The Regular Edition of the TGTC is completely free and can be downloaded further below. I've released the TGTC for free because the information in it can help a lot of people, and it would be petty of me to force people to pay for it. However hundreds of hours of my spare time have gone into compiling and maintaining these guides, and continue to do so. Please consider purchasing the Deluxe Edition of the TGTC, which comes in PDF or hardcopy book form. It has a range of enhancements including pictures, higher quality text resolution and full bookmarks. Please show your support for my work and ensure that I can continue to maintain these guides.
