Office 2007 & Windows Vista support!
An optional config file - this functionality lets you pull a key stored in the registry for any software. A sample config file is included

Command line options - /save /savecsv /close /hive /file
Load Hive option - allows you to load the registry hive of another Windows installation. To use, put the hard drive in a working machine

install. If you're using Windows Vista, Administrator rights are required for this feature. You may have to right click on the Keyfinder and
run as Administrator.

SMART is a freeware utility which helps you tweak Windows 7 Services, based on the suggested configurations of BlackVipers.

It can simply be downloaded and used as a portable application to customize your Windows services settings, to meet your requirements. With judicious tweaking, it can make your system faster, as you will be disabling services which you do not require.

Tweaking a system has to be done carefully, and more so in the cases of Services. A Windows service is a long running executable that performs specific functions and which is designed not to require user intervention. Windows services can be configured to start when the operating system is booted and run in the background as long as Windows is running, or they can be started manually when required.

You can always tweak your services manually individually, but what this utility does is automate the entire process to give you the desired settings. Based on the recommendations of the
BlackVipers Service Configuration Guide, the utility offers 3 sets of pre- configured tweaks :

1. Safe
2. Tweaked
3. Advanced or BareBones

The utility has set the Presets to check for Service before applying Tweak. There is also a button to re-set services to Windows Default Settings.

Quick Rundown of Operations:

1. Click a Service to get additional information about it.
2. Double-Click a Service to Automatically Start or Stop it.
3. Right-Click a Service to View and set StartUp Options (Automatic, Manual & Disabled).
4. Select a Service and Click Open File Location to Locate Service Executable (Does not work on svchost, so if you happen to click a svchost and it opens up your Documents Folder, don’t be alarmed.).
5. Click Refresh To reload the list of Services.
6. Click a preset (Default, Safe, Tweaked, Advanced/BareBones), to set preconfigured Tweaks.
7. The Safe setting is (you guessed it!) safe! Tweak and Advanced settings, are for Advanced users to set their Services.
