    interesting... downloading now.

    since you're the author? is it ok to post bug reports here/PM them to you?


    it works, allows some amusing tweaks.. not too many must haves, but certainly useful.

    Looks very interesting - I might give it a try. I personally prefer to do my tweaks manually so I know exactly what's being done if I need to reverse it, but this would probably be good for normal users that don't like doing all that stuff.

    It's something about TPU.
    Users are always ready to help and are rarely abrasive.

    I've created WinBubble because of the questions and difficulties I encountered while creating a blog regarding tweaks, customization and hacks in Windows Vista.

    I want all Vista user's to experience how to tweak their Computers.

    Snapfiles.com took the liberty to review and add WinBubble to their listing. They include an amazing screenshots of WinBubble. What can I say? It's beautiful! Also, They gave a 4-Stars rating.

    MajorGeeks.com, included WinBubble to their listing. I thought it will be posted in their Software's forum, but instead they added it to their listing.

    interesting tweaks - could you describe the one for increasing network bandwidth, and any potential downsides? i've been doing my best to max out my gigabit network here.

    It will increase the number of Internet Connections per server to 10
    instead of 2 (default)

    Enjoy!

    So... it only affects internet explorer?

    Sorry but thats a little misleading, as it doesnt help network bandwidth at all.
    (thats a well known old tweak, that only increases download speeds in IE)

    Network - LAN/WAN
    WAN - Wide Area Network (It includes the internet...)

    *This tweak only affects the internet connections (TCP) between the user and the server.
