    Yes. it took just 3 seconds downloading!!! And it's light and quite convenient to use. It's a tweak in fact. I like the idea that it would disable many useless talkative applications that slow down the machine... like Media Player and all its control features. But it does even more...

    Looks like a good app. Can you undo the tweaks if it messes something up? Never mind. I'm blind as a bat I just say there was a way to save before you mess with it and a way to reloaded what you saved.

    Yes you can. I have all the "Services Options" checked. See screen shot, up left. I went to Window Updates for a test and they did not work (of course, they were all disabled!), then I unselected all services in order to allow the updates and they worked: I could download the updates. I reboot my pc, then checkmarked all "Services Options" again save "Disable Internet time Synchronize", So yes you can undo the tweaks safely! :)
