In conjunction with my long running philosophy that free is always good, I gave the software program ‘Vista 4 Experts’ a try. This little gem is a delight to use and easy to manage. Oh yeah.

Talk about a no brainer. The author has a simple interface which spells out all actions that are available. I learned that if you right click an item, you will be presented with the following options:

Vista4Experts is kind of a treat for computer experts who don’t want security center notifications, User Account Control dialogs, automatic Windows Defender scannings, automatic update installations (which cause you to reboot your system if you don’t react quickly enough). People who want MSDN (or google) set as default search engine in the Internet Explorer search bar, who want the start menu power button to shut down the system instead of hibernating it, etc. These and many more fixes are included in Vista4Experts. All of these changes can be discarded, enabled or reversed. Vista4Experts is the first expert utility of its kind and works on every platform.

This is a free software and so it is given without warranties, this means the use of this tool is at your own risk. I take no responsibility for any damage that may unintentionally be caused through its use.

Let me know what you think if you give this software a try. Also, let us know if you have any other recommendations for Vista assistance.

Comments welcome.
